Church of The Resurrection’s COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Below is a short list of measures we are taking at this time to keep everyone as safe as possible.

 

Preliminary:

  1. We are taking all the prudent steps we can to protect the safety of all at CTR.
  2. We are following recommendations and guidelines from the State of NC and the Diocese.
  3. Be aware that even though we are gathering in person, risk remains.  This risk will continue to decline as more people are vaccinated.
  4. If you are sick or experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus, stay home!

General:

  1. Social distancing is to be maintained at all times during in person services at CTR.
  2. Masks are to be worn by all persons during in-person services at CTR.
    • Please bring a clean mask from home with you to the service.
    • Disposable masks will be available at church for those without one.
    • Agreeing to wear a mask is an act of Christian love.
  3. Hand sanitizing stations will be set up in prominent places in the entry and worship area.

Sunday morning:

  1. To the extent possible, we want to reduce movement and wandering before, during, and after the worship service.
  2. There currently is no Coffee/Fellowship time after the service.
    • To talk with or catch up with someone, please do so outside, under the covered sidewalk at the front of CCA.
  3. As you enter the worship area, ushers wearing a mask and gloves will assist you with seating.
    • Members of the same household can sit together.
    • For others, social distance will be maintained in the positioning of chairs.

Worship:

  1. Due to concerns over tiny airborne particles remaining in the air, singers will be wearing masks.
  2. Others in the congregation are asked to keep masks on during singing.
  3. Communion will be offered using sealed kits.
  4. Distribution of Communion will be done by Servers wearing a mask and gloves.
  5. To limit the time spent indoors, anticipate our worship service being slightly abbreviated.
