COVID-19 Response

Updated October 31, 2020 at 8:00pm

At Connection Point Church we take the health and well-being of our congregation, staff, and community very seriously. Our staff team is monitoring local and nationwide coronavirus (COVID-19) updates closely. In addition to our regular efforts to maintain a healthy environment at Connection Point, we have implemented additional measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. You will find those measures and other important information detailed below.


Worship online from home if you:
  • have a temperature greater than 100.4
  • have any COVID-19 symptoms
  • have tested positive
  • are awaiting test results
  • have been exposed to someone with symptoms or someone who has tested positive or is awaiting test results

 


 


NEW Guidelines & Measures

 

Our church has seen firsthand how devastating COVID-19 can be, and we want to do all that we can to prevent further harm. This is why beginning Sunday, November 1, we will have updated guidelines and measures the church family and staff will be required to follow each time we gather for worship, LifeGroups, and all ministry activities. Please read this information carefully so we can move forward in ministry as loving neighbors without worrying about being the source of spreading COVID-19. We don't want to have another staff outbreak or experience an even wider outbreak among the church family. Each member following these updated guidelines is our best chance to keep our doors open for worship, ministry, and life change. If you have any questions, please contact a member of our Lead Team or email contact@connectionpoint.tv.
 

MANDATORY CHURCH-WIDE GUIDELINES

  • Everyone in attendance is required to wear a mask for the duration of their time on campus. This includes but is not limited to the worship service, LifeGroups, lobby areas, and gatherings in the parking lot.
  • Staff and volunteers will lovingly remind those without a face covering to wear a mask.
  • If someone asks you to wear a mask and you are medically exempt, please lovingly communicate that to them.
  • Those engaged in social interactions should observe appropriate social distancing and avoid physical contact.
