WE ARE OPEN AGAIN!
Please use this website as a place to find all pertinent information regarding reopening. Here are some main points we want you to know:
We will continue the online option for service for the foreseeable future. We want you to feel comfortable with when you return so there is no rush for anyone to return prematurely against your convictions or concerns.
There will be two services each Sunday moving forward. The first service will be indoors at 9:00am. The second service will be at 11am and will be located outdoors (unless cold or wet weather moves the 11am service inside as well.) This means we will be dependent upon the weather for the second service. Please keep a close watch on our lines of communication as we come close to Sunday morning to ensure we are still gathering. If rain is in the forecast, a decision will be made by 7pm on Saturday and communicated through email and social media. To make sure we are staying with our limits, please use the sign up forms below to let us know you would like a spot reserved.
Children’s Church will be phased in starting with 9am Inside Service. Head over to the kids ministry website for more details. ccmercer.com/kids.
Masks will be recommended, but optional. We trust those part of this church body desire to love each other well so please do not take this point as license to not be diligent to stay socially distanced and pretend like there are not those part of this church body who concerned of infection or of higher risk.
We ask that you BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR for the 11am Outdoor Service. (If we are outside) Not only will this make setup simpler but it will also decrease surfaces that need to be touched and therefore cleaned. You also may want to bring an umbrella or pop-up tent for shade.
Before you come to the church building...
Be sure to ask the following questions on behalf of your entire group before saving your seat for a Worship Service:
- Am I showing any flu-like symptoms?
- Have I had a fever or 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days?
- Have I had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?
- Is there any medical reason why I shouldn’t be around others?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, we strongly encourage you to attend our service online this weekend at10am.
One last consideration…
Elderly individuals with what the medical profession calls co-morbidities (Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Disease, immunosuppressant condition, etc.) are the most vulnerable to suffer from a COVID-19 infection. You may want to minimize your exposure to a congregational setting for a little while longer.
