We're beginning to move into a new normal, and a new normal means a new standard for safety. We encourage you to check out all of the safety information below to learn about all we are continuing to do in order to keep every attender safe. (Looking for all the other info you need to plan your visit? Check it out here.)
As you arrive: Beginning May 23rd, wearing a mask will be optional at Crossbridge worship gatherings. If you would like a mask but don't have one (or need a new one), we will have plenty available for you. "Mask only" seating will be provided in the back rows for those of you who would like to limit your interaction with anyone who will not be wearing a mask for the full duration of our worship gathering. In the spirit of love, let's work together as a community to assume the best of each other and be kind in our interactions with one another. If you are not wearing a mask, please make every effort to respect the distance of those who are. We encourage you to keep a mask on your person to wear if you'd like to converse with someone who may be wearing one. This will be awkward and new, but we can do this!
As you walk in, we will also have a green, yellow, or red wristband available for you to put on to indicate to others your comfort level with personal contact ranging from "Hi! Glad to be here, but I'm definitely keeping my distance" (red) to "I'm totally happy to shake hands, hug, whatever" (green) or something in between (yellow). We ask for everyone to please be respectful of others' boundaries! This is an opportunity for us to grow in the all-important grace of loving our neighbors and fellow attenders well.
During our worship gathering: Our goal is to provide a touchless worship experience. In order not to pass around items, you may give a physical offering in the black boxes and each seat will be equipped with a pre-packaged communion cup (along with a pen and connection card) so we do not have to pass around trays during communion. We will not be offering a physical paper bulletin at this time, but one is available each weekend at crossbridgechristian.com/bulletin.
For your safety, we are requiring all speakers and musicians on stage who have not been fully vaccinated (14 days after their final vaccine dose) to wear a mask until they become fully vaccinated. In an effort to practice safe distancing, seating will be spaced apart six feet and we ask that you only sit with those with whom you have been socializing during the pandemic. (Please respect the wristbands people have chosen!) In order to help us practice social distancing, at the end of service we will dismiss row-by-row to exit, beginning with the back.
Increased sanitizing: We will sanitize all benches, entry doors, and bathroom doors for your safety. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout the facility for your convenience.
