CHESTER CHRISTIAN CENTER’S

COVID-19 REOPENING PROTOCOL

 

We are so excited for the opportunity to be back worshiping the Lord together this Sunday. Even though we are reopening in person, we are still hosting our Facebook Live feed for your convenience on our Chester Christian Center Facebook page at 10:30 am. If you do not wish to join us for sanctuary services due to concerns or health related risks, please feel no obligation to come. You can continue to follow us online. For the safety of everyone involved, please take your family’s temperature before you come. If you are sick or someone in your family is sick, please stay home, remain safe and watch us on our Facebook page.

 

In addition, we ask that you please abide by the CDC guidelines:

  • Avoid contact with those who are sick.

  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

  • Dry hands with a clean towel or air-dry your hands.

  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.

  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

  • Practice good hygiene habits.

In order to make this a smooth and safe transition, here are some guidelines and changes to protocol that we will be abiding by:

THINGS TO EXPECT:

  • Everyone will enter at Door C and will exit out of doors A and B.

  • Door C will open at 10:15 am on Sunday.

  • Service will start promptly at 10:30 am and will last 1 hour.

  • All doors will be propped open and remain open during the entirety of the service.

  • If physical assistance (i.e. wheelchairs, handicap access) is needed, please contact our church email ahead of time so that we can best assist to your needs (chesterccag@gmail.com).

  • Shaking of hands, hugs, fist bumps and person to person contact is not encouraged at this time. Please maintain social distance guidelines.

  • Masks are now required (due to Ohio Governor's Mandate 7/20/20) for the entire service unless you are medically cleared or for the officiants on stage. If you have a medical condition that hinders your ability to wear a mask, please contact the church office (chesterccag@gmail.com) to make us aware so we can plan accordingly.

  • Sanitized bathrooms are available.

  • There will be hand sanitizing stations for your convenience at every entrance/exit.

  • The building has been sanitized and will be sanitized between weekly services.

  • At this time, Stand Kid’s Church meets in room 13 (upstairs). Upon entry of door C, the Stand staff will take their temperature, sign your child, and give you the instructions you need for pick up. The kids will be social distanced the entire time during their service.

  • Noah’s Ark, Nursery and the cry room will not be available to access AT THIS TIME.

  • If you desire to give your tithes or offering in person, there will be offering plates at the entrance and exit of the sanctuary doors for your convenience. Giving online through our website (chesterchristiancenter.com) is also available.

  • Ushers will dismiss by row at the end of service.

  • If you would like special prayer after the service, you will be asked to remain seated and wait for all to exit. Then, a ministry team member will have the opportunity to pray with you and your family only.
