To the CRBC community:
As we prayerfully navigate the Covid-19 health issue, we wanted to give you a few updates as to how we have approached re-opening our church campus in the safest way possible. We have taken into account guidance from the government and health organizations in regards to mitigating this serious illness. If you’re checking out our church for the first time or if you have been viewing the service online, here is what you can expect when you visit our campus on Sunday mornings:
-You will be greeted outside and have your temperature taken with a contact free thermometer.
-Please be advised to stay home if you have symptoms of illness to include: fever, sore throat, dry cough, vomiting or diarrhea, or if you are a vulnerable person who could catch the virus easily.
-Enter through our main entrance at Door 10.
-Face masks are mandatory in the building at all times to protect yourself and the safety of others.
-Sign in with a greeter and give a good contact number.
-Our auditorium is set up for socially distanced seating.
-Established entrance and exit patterns that are clearly marked on the floor.
-Enhanced cleaning measures in restroom facilities and high touch areas.
-The nursery and children’s Sunday School classes are not meeting at this time, so families are encouraged to worship together in our gymnasium. Tables are set up for social distancing and the service is streamed into the gym.
-Fellowship is encouraged to take place outdoors before and after the service.
HOW SHOULD I RESPOND SPIRITUALLY TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)?
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is yet one more reminder that we live in a fallen world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. Ultimately, none of us are immune to any of these things. But that’s why the gospel is such good news. God has not left us alone in this world of sickness, sin, suffering, and death. He has come to us in the person of Jesus. The greatest news in all the world is that Jesus lived a life with no sin, died on a cross to pay the price for our sin, and rose from the grave in victory over sin and death. Now anyone anywhere who turns from their sin and trusts in Jesus will be forgiven of all their sin and restored to relationship with God forever. That means that through Jesus, we never have to fear sickness or death because we know we have eternal life with God.
If you do not know that you have eternal life with God, we urge you to put your faith in Jesus. And if you do know that you have eternal life with God, we urge you to share your faith in Jesus with others. Times like these remind us all of the fragility of life and the inevitability of death. So let’s spread the greatest news that death has been defeated and eternal life is available to all who trust in Jesus.
In addition to trusting in Jesus and sharing about Jesus with others, here’s some other ways you can respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19):
