Guidelines for Return to Limited Capacity Prayer Services
Each service will be 40 minutes to allow for extensive cleaning between services. There will be worship songs, a brief word from our pastors, readings, and communion. Social distancing and masks will be required, and temperature checks will be done at the door. Capacity for each service will be under 50. (Per the AZ Governor’s Executive Order 2020-43.) Therefore, we are asking everyone to RSVP at the link below so that we are able to stay within that capacity. We will also be confirming that each attendee is on the RSVP list as they enter.  

We need everyone’s help in our goal to keep all attending healthy and safe. Your actions will play a large part in our ability to accomplish this goal. We encourage every member to self-evaluate prior to attending each Prayer Service. If you feel sick, have a temperature over 100.5 degrees, are coughing, sneezing, or have a cold, please stay home. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. If you are in this category, we encourage you to engage with the CG Community online.

*Please note:  If you start to feel ill during a service or in the days following, please report that to the church office. It will assist in protecting others should a case arise in the congregation.

We recognize these guidelines represent changes to the last time we met on campus, and change is often uncomfortable. The Coronavirus has forced change upon each of us to varying degrees, and we have learned to adapt to these changes. We appreciate your help, patience, understanding, participation, and prayers as we navigate these uncharted waters. Remember, we are all doing something we have never done before. As we have seen over the past few months, things can and do change quickly. These guidelines are subject to change as the guidance from our state and federal governments changes. We will continue to update you, so please check your email, social media, and CG App regularly.
We are so looking forward to regathering for worship.  As we plan and prepare to keep you safe and healthy as you come back on campus, there are a few precautions we would like to share with you.
