To help keep everyone in our community healthy, all those attending in-person worship will be required to be symptom-free and observe safety protocols listed below.

Our 10:00 am service will be live-streamed each Sunday, so if you have any concerns about your own safety or the well-being of others, please worship with us online at www.ccrye.org//sunday-live.

Before attending in-person worship, you will be asked to agree to the following:

  • Wear a proper mask covering nose and mouth at all times.

  • Follow all posted guidelines and the instructions of ushers and staff.

  • Keep at least six feet of physical distance between yourself and anyone not in your household.

  • Refrain from using bathrooms, kitchen or other spaces in the church building except in an emergency.

  • Stay home if you or a member of your household has experienced symptoms of COVID-19 during the past two weeks.

  • If you have traveled to a high-risk state, please observe a fourteen-day quarantine before joining us for worship.

  • While Christ’s Church is taking precautions to keep our parishioners and staff safe and healthy, there is an inherent risk in attending worship services. Please read the Informed Consent at the bottom of the reservation form and agree to release Christ’s Church from any and all liability.
