Phased Reopening Plan
As our nation begins to scale back the social distancing guidelines, we want to keep you in the loop about our plans to reopen.
Given the size of our gatherings, our reopening strategy will probably look a little different from other churches and local businesses. We’re taking special care to be as cautious as possible about gathering in-person. With that in mind, we’re rolling out a phased reopening plan based upon the White House guidelines.
Our plan right now is to slowly and intentionally move through the phases.
- Phase 1 started on May 1st and keeps groups at 10 or fewer people while we continue to practice strict social distancing.
- Phase 2 will begin on May 22nd as long as things continue to progress well in our community. The biggest change you will notice in Phase 2 is Crosspoint Groups can start meeting together again in-person. Phase 2 will also include our offices opening with our staff working a staggered in-office schedule.
- Phase 3 will tentatively begin on June 5th as long as things continue to improve. We will NOT GATHER together for in-person gatherings at our locations during this phase, but we will encourage people to start gathering for watch parties in their homes on Sundays.
As much as we'd love to rush straight to Phase 4, where we gather again at our locations, our staff will evaluate government guidelines and local health data on a weekly basis to ensure we reopen in a way that is safe for our church family. We don’t have a timeline for how long we will be in Phase 3, so stay tuned for updates and continue to gather with us weekly online for further updates.
If you are medically vulnerable, if you have a compromised immune system, if you’re over 65, we strongly encourage you to follow the latest CDC guidelines and opt for gathering virtually with your Crosspoint group instead of gathering with them in person.
If you’re sick, if you’re hurting, please engage your Crosspoint group, or visit our Care and Support page. We will be in touch with you by phone as soon as we are able. We will resource you. We will pray for you. We have deacons, pastors, and community leaders willing to get groceries and to pick up prescriptions.
If you have prayer needs, please visit our Prayer Wall and post them. We take time to pray over these needs each and every week.
