POST COVID 19 Announcement
Resumption of Corporate Worship Services
 
June 21st, 2020
 
To: CBC Congregation
From: Elders & Deacons Boards
 
Dear family of the Incredible Body of Christ of Calvary Bible Church, we trust that you are all well by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
The combined leadership of CBC, in keeping with our commitment to you, wish to advise you of the imminent plans for us to resume corporate worship on next Lord’s Day, June 28th, 2020 @ 10:30am.
 
In preparation for our resumption of services, we advise that we have taken the following preparatory steps in compliance with the established government protocols and to ensure our collective safety to the greatest extent possible.
 
On Sunday past (June 14th), the eligible (< 65 yrs,) elders, deacons and ministry workers from the ushers and greeters ministries, conducted a walk through at the live stream service. We observed and will be implementing the following protocols for the upcoming service, namely:
 
1. Wearing of appropriate face coverings (over nose and mouth) prior to entering the church premises and for the duration of the corporate worship (not to exceed 1 hour). Please note that the platform worship leaders will be unmasked as is appropriate, while observing the physical distancing protocols.
 
2. Hand sanitization upon entry (& exit) of the church premises (administered by ushers and/or at the sanitizing stations).
 
3. Maintenance of physical distancing protocols including compliance with seating assignments as directed by the ushers.
 
4. Delay of persons aged 65 plus or those with comorbidity conditions, from attending services until a date to be determined.
 
5. Use of Earle Weech Auditorium for overflow/service viewing.
 
6. Prompt dispersal following the corporate worship, avoiding the congregation in large groups, being mindful of safe/social/physical dlstancing as service attendees return to their vehicles.
 
7. No Sunday School classes or nursery care for the time being.
 
In order to assist in this process, please note that:
 
1. A full professional cleaning of the entire church premises will be conducted prior to the resumption of corporate worship, to ensure that it is sanitary for attendees’ use and safety.
 
2. Appropriate slgnage has been posted for ease of direction.
 
3. Hand sanitizing stations have been erected throughout the church premises.
 
4. Ushers will open the doors and present the offering bag to attendees to reduce high contact surfaces.
 
We believe that it is God’s will that we resume regular corporate worship.
 
Pray for us as we lovingly and carefully prepare to gather as His servants!
