Limited numbers

  • Beginning Sunday, May 2, we will welcome a total of 50 persons in worship. (about 10 worship leaders and 40 worshippers).

Procedures

  • No one should attend in person worship if they have recently tested positive for COVID-19, have been in close contact with someone known to have tested positive, or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, cough, muscle aches, or stomach upset.

  • Every person attending an in-person worship service at CPC will be required to wear a mask over both their mouth and nose at all times.

  • Entry will be permitted through doors 1A (front red door), 5C (back east door), and 7D (elevator door).

  • We will only use level one / main floor of the church. Restrooms on this level will be the only ones available. The lower level and second floor will be closed.

  • Keep your distance: six feet distance must be maintained.

  • Temperature will be checked at the door by ushers.

  • Ushers will escort worshippers to assigned seats. Worshippers must remain seated where ushers direct. Pews that are marked with a decal of the CPC logo indicates, “OK to sit here.”

  • Following the conclusion of worship, each row of worshippers will be sent forth into God’s world. Please remain in your pew after the postlude until an usher signals it is ok to leave the church.

  • No greeting of pastor, shaking of hands or visiting post worship. This includes with other worshippers. Please proceed directly to your car.

  • No fellowship / coffee following worship.

Changes in Worship

  • Singing of hymns, service music such as the Doxology, etc. will be done by the cantor only. No worship leader or worshipper will sing any hymns or songs. We will stand for the hymns / service music and all are encouraged to follow the music and feel the music in their hearts / read the words silently.

  • No litanies or verbal responses from the congregation. Again, in order to protect the health of all and to reduce the spread of aerosols, we will completely refrain from call and response litanies. 

  • We will share in the Lord’s Prayer silently, or it will be said by one person only.

  • Communion will be taken in our seats using prepackaged communion packets. 

  • No printed bulletins will be available. Either print yours to bring, follow on your phone, or follow on the screens in the sanctuary. 

As always feel free to contact Pete Hanlon, chair of Worship & Music Committee or Pastor Beth or Pastor Susan.
