Update March 14, 2020
Dear Church Family,
We have seen an increasingly complex health situation developing since our last update. Alberta Health recommends the following regarding Covid-19:
Events with more than 50 attendees that involves international participants, critical infrastructure staff, seniors, or other high-risk populations.
We do not want to unwittingly contribute to the spread of virus to the seniors in our church.
Children and even adults can have no symptoms and spread the virus to vulnerable people.
It will be highly unlikely we can keep a six foot social distance space while in church together.
In light of this, and because "love does no harm to a neighbour" we have decided to cancel corporate worship this week, for Sunday March 15th. I'll keep you posted regarding contingency plans during the week.
With hope and love,
"Love does no harm to a neighbour. Therefore, love is the fulfillment of the law."
Update March 12, 2020
Last week, we were worshiping the Lord with the powerful words of the Bethel Music song, "It is well". Josh led us in this refrain: "Wind and waves still know His name" and it sunk deeply into our souls. What a week it has been! Wind and waves - the COVID-19 virus is now a global pandemic, and it has arrived in Calgary, not only bringing sickness, but economic and social crises.
Jesus can still the wind and waves. Imagine facing all this without Him in the boat? Let's be salt and light and comfort to others during this stressful time.
Alberta's top doctor has recommended that gatherings over 250 people be cancelled to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our church is blessed to be smaller than that and will be open this Sunday (unless we learn more between now and then). We will update this page if there is a change.
For now, I wanted to let you know that Crossroads has an action plan for COVID-19 virus ("coronavirus") prevention.
Our caretaker will be sanitizing all hard surfaces before you come to church.
It is strongly recommended that hugging and handshaking should be kept to a minimum or none at all. We understand that greeting our church family is a wonderful habit that may be hard to break, and that is why you will find hand sanitizer stations at the entrances, in the worship area and washrooms.
We also strongly remind members and guests - especially those who’ve travelled recently, have been around travellers, or are experiencing any flu-like symptoms - to stay home from church this week.
We will try to keep the recommended distance from one another during worship time, so seating arrangements will be a bit different.
Our goal is to ensure that anyone who attends Crossroads Community Church is safe, and the best path to safety is through proactive communication and informed planning. This is an opportunity to show love to our neighbour by doing our part to reduce the spread of this infection.
With hope and love,
Please feel free to call me or text with any questions 403-988-9542
