CMC Campus Reopening Plan
During these past couple of months, we have seen God do incredible things in and through our church amid a pandemic. While we had to close our campus doors temporarily, we are grateful that God continued to grow His Church and provided us opportunities to gather for worship and stay connected online.
After much discussion, planning, and prayerful consideration, our staff and leadership are excited to announce our CMC Campus Reopening Plan.
We have continued and are continuing to monitor our government and medical guidelines and recommendations regarding COVID-19. With that being said, we will be reopening our CMC campus for corporate worship on Sunday, June 14, 2020.
To prepare for our Sunday, June 14 campus reopening date, on Sunday, June 7, we will still only have an online service available for our church family on Facebook, YouTube, and our website. However, this online service on Sunday, June 7 will be at 11:00 am instead of 10:30 am.
On Sunday, June 14, we will have two worship services available. These service times beginning June 14 and moving forward will be at 9:00 am and 11:00 am. Again, please note that our second service will be at 11:00 am instead of 10:30 am. These two service times will allow more time in between our services to direct people in and out of our campus and also sanitize our campus as necessary.
In addition to our in-person services, we will continue offering an online service on Facebook, YouTube, and our website at 11:00 am only.
Our Main Auditorium will be set up in such a way that follows proper guidelines and recommendations to create the safest environment for our church family.
In our Main Auditorium, we will have rows of seats more spaced out. We ask that at least 3 seats be kept open on a row between each family to allow for proper distancing.
Our campus has been and is continuing to be thoroughly cleaned. When we reopen our campus, we will not require masks to be worn. However, anyone is welcome to wear a mask while on campus should they feel the need.
To enter our campus, we ask that you please enter through our West Lobby doors or our South Lobby doors. We will have greeters positioned at each of our entrances to open doors for everyone.
Also, our check-in system will look different compared to how it normally looks on our campus. We will have a check-in team stationed in our West Lobby and South Lobby with iPads to check-in each person and family. We are doing this not only for sanitation purposes but also to ensure that we have the opportunity to personally greet each person that walks onto our campus.
On Sunday, June 14, we will only have the two corporate worship services available. There will not be any on-campus small groups, no CMC Kids (Babies-5th Grade) classes, and no CMC Students on Sunday mornings until further notice. Also, there will not be any normal Wednesday night activities on-campus until further notice.
We are excited for the reopening of our CMC campus and are continuing to prepare and plan for our June 14 reopening. We ask that you pray with us for the reopening of our campus.
We thank you for your continuous love and support of Chestnut Mountain Church even during this season!
Church family, we love you!
