Coronavirus safety at church

As most of you know, the CDC (Center for Disease Control) is responding to a global outbreak of novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. We want to assure you that ChristChurch is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our community.


Our priority is continuing to providing a safe sanctuary for worship and prayer.


Some suggestions, changes, and reminders:

  • We are providing hand sanitizer for you to use at our welcome table. It is also available in the sanctuary.
  • During the sharing of the peace we recommend getting creative with your greeting, Pastor David did the elbow bump instead of shaking hands. Of course, how you share the peace is up to your discretion and consent.
  • We will continue to serve communion. Since we use single-use cups we do not need to change our method.
  • If you are volunteering to serve communion please wash your hands during sharing of the peace, before communion is served.
  • Offering: Instead of passing the offering basket around we will have an offering station where we invite you to leave your donations.
  • Most importantly, take care of yourself and stay healthy – get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated and wash your hands for 20 seconds with warm water. If you feel unwell or vulnerable is it 100% okay to stay home.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Pastor David or Rachael Jans.

 Lenten Global Service Project 2020: Baby Care Kits 

We are collecting items NOW through Easter, April 12th.

Baby Care kits are shipped to countries where women in poverty bring babies into a world with little or nothing to care for them. These kits will contain basics like blankets for warmth and soap to keep baby clean. Leave donations in the Commons. The full list of items needed is here. 

Service opportunity:
Sewing blankets for baby care kits

Friday, April 3rd: 
2pm – 9pm

Saturday, April 4th: 9am – 5pm

You do not need to attend for the full session.
Come for as long as you like!

We have a lot of baby blankets cut out, we just need to sew them together. No sewing experience needed! We have roles for everyone!

If you have any of these items bring them:

  - Pieces of flannel or fleece, about 45*45”. No need to prewash. 

  - Any sewing supplies you have

  - We will order pizza for lunch. Bring snacks to share

A sign up sheet is in the Commons.
