November 2020

Dear Friends,

 

On Tuesday, November 24th the Government of Alberta issued a state of public health emergency across the province as active cases of COVID-19 continue to rise and the burden on the healthcare system grows.  This state of public health emergency has come with new rules and regulations for gatherings, including worship services.  

 

With these new regulations we have decided to move our Sunday worship services back online to Zoom for three weeks, starting November 29th and including December 13th. Alberta Health will review the situation and guidelines on December 15th and we will revise our plans at that time. In person Sunday School will also be suspended for these three weeks.   

 

We understand that some of you may have difficulty accessing our online services but still hope to worship together.  For those who struggle, or are unable, to access our online services we will provide an in-person worship option which will include the Zoom content. This group will need to remain small as we only have room for 20 people. If you wish to attend in person please contact our church office by Thursday at 1:00pm to register your name.

 

If you wish to attend our service in person all current COVID-19 guidelines still apply:

  1. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND IF YOU, OR SOMEONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD, ARE UNWELL or have been in contact with anyone who is a suspected COVID-19 carrier. If you, or anyone in your household, have any symptoms of COVID-19, have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, or have, or are being tested for COVID-19 please do not attend our service in person.

  2. Physical distancing must be maintained between households before, after, and throughout the service.  This means no handshakes or hugs.  We know this feels strange and often awkward, but please continue to be respectful of one another's space.

  3. Singing has continued to be discouraged by Alberta Health Services. We are seeking to minimize the risks of spreading COVID-19 as much as possible, and so we will not be singing aloud together. (Practice your humming in the meantime :) )

  4. Please continue to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene. Hand sanitizer is available around the building, please use it. (Please do not use on young children, washing hands is best.)

  5. Children’s programming will suspended for at least the next three weeks.

  6. Masks must continue to be worn while inside the church as per the City of Calgary Face Coverings Bylaw.

  7. For everyone’s safety we will be cleaning high touch surfaces before and after our service.

As it says in Hebrews, “let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another…” (Hebrews 10:24-25).  Toward this end, we wish to continue to be a blessing to one another and find close relationships during this time of uncertainty.  We encourage you to reach out to one another over the next few weeks and check in on each other. 

 

We will do everything we can to communicate with you about upcoming events & opportunities.  As a church community we want to be a source of hope, joy, peace & love as we enter this Christmas season.  

 

If you have any questions or concerns please call or email Keith (keith@crossroads-communitychurch.org) or Jenn (jenn@crossroads-communitychurch.org)
