Last weekend we welcomed Crossing attenders to join us for worship without masks, trusting our church family to be personally responsible regarding their own health decisions. Beginning this weekend, we will invite our staff and volunteers, with a few exceptions, to do the same.
Those exceptions include any staff or volunteers who, on the weekend, are interacting directly with children, birth through 5th grade, and kids in KidsCrossing. For now, we will ask these groups of people to continue to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, as we remain vigilant in creating a safe environment for our kids and students.
Reservations are required for children birth through fifth grade, if you plan for your child to go to KidsCrossing. You can reserve a spot for them starting at noon on Wednesday using Signup Genius or through The Crossing’s app.
We understand that many are still being cautious, and will continue to reserve a section for those who would like to be seated with others wearing masks.
God created us to be in relationship with others, and this past year has hindered some of the ways that we’ve been able to fully live that out. We celebrate that each of these updates is another step in our stair-stepped process of returning to in-person ministry and community.
Still have Q's? Here are a few that are frequently asked:
We hope that you’ll continue to worship with us from the safety of your home. Our teams are committed to continue to create engaging experiences for those joining us online.
We invite you to continue to give online at thecrossing.church/give. We have also installed receptacles in each building for those who’d prefer to drop their gift there. We will be holding communion during our services using pre-sealed elements. For those joining us from home, we’ll encourage you to use whatever you might have on hand to participate with us.
Our facilities team has gone to great efforts to enhance our health and sanitation measures to help ensure a safe worship experience for you. Everything from installing foot-pulls on restroom doors to rearranging furniture in the lobbies conducive to social distancing. And, high-touch surfaces and restrooms will be disinfected before and during services. For your convenience, hand sanitizer will be readily available.
In addition, we have policies and safety checks for all of our staff and volunteers to ensure they don’t enter our buildings if they are experiencing Covid-like symptoms or if they have recently been in close contact with anyone who may have the virus.
