We are aware of the concerns and the precautionary measures being taken across our nation and world surrounding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Like you, our staff has been following this evolving story about this pandemic, and we wanted to update you on what we are doing at Chestnut Mountain regarding COVID-19.
At CMC, cleaning and sanitizing our church campus has always been a priority and these cleaning protocols will continue. Several of these sanitation protocols include all of our restrooms being professionally sanitized each week. In addition, our entire CMC Kids areas use sanitizing cleaners on tables, chairs, and any toys that are touched, including our indoor playground.

Should any additional necessary changes need to be made to our schedule in the coming days and weeks, we will adjust accordingly and be sure to let you know as soon as possible.
Ways that you can connect with us to receive the most up to date information from us is through Facebook, Instagram, email, and our website.
Here are ways that we can work together to help:
- Pray for our world and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the healthcare officials and workers who are treating those affected and working to stop the spread of this virus. Pray for our local, national, and global leaders that are making difficult decisions regarding the coronavirus.
- Promote Christ. There is a great deal of anxiety and fear sweeping across our world currently. However, we, as Christians, have the opportunity to promote Christ's love and the confident hope that only He can provide. We, as believers, must demonstrate to the world how our faith in Christ provides complete assurance over anxiety and fear.
- Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Avoid contact with the sick. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your arm when sneezing or coughing. Make use of those fist bumps, elbow touches, air hugs, and hand waving when greeting others. If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, we ask that you please refrain from attending services.
While COVID-19 continues to significantly impact our nation and world, we are confident that God is in control. As we recently read in 1 Peter through our In The Word journey, we should "[cast] all [our] anxiety on Him, because He cares for [us]" (1 Peter 5:7). During this time, let us care and love for others in need while constantly placing our trust in the Lord and casting all our cares/anxieties to Him.
Our staff and leadership continue to prioritize the health and safety of every person who walks onto our CMC campus. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and commitment to helping us with this. Let's continue to pray for all those that are affected by this virus and pray for the authorities, health officials, and leaders across our world dealing with this situation.
