Central Christian Guidelines for Safe Worship During Fall and Winter
The following guidelines are based on the Ohio COVID-19 Risk Level Guidelines for the Public (see reverse):
At Level 4: Church facility locked down
At Level 3: Services will be online/staff will work from home/all activities cancelled
At Levels 1 & 2: We will conduct indoor worship services with the following precautions:
Anyone with symptoms or recent exposure to COVID 19 is asked to not attend.
Anyone who is at high risk due to other health conditions is encouraged to exercise caution in attending.
Due to recent evidence that COVID-19 hangs in the air, and can be spread beyond 6 feet, school-age children and adults must wear masks covering their mouth and nose the entire time they are in the facility. The only exception will be for those who are conducting the service, and they will be more than 15 feet away from the congregation.
Pre and post-service fellowship will take place in the gym, as opposed to the Narthex, to allow for social distancing and to allow those who need to avoid greeting others to do so.
People will be reminded to maintain social distancing as they enter or leave the sanctuary.
Seating will allow for social distancing between families or individuals.
Services will be shortened.
Singing will be limited.
Offerings will be collected in deposit boxes that have been mounted near the exits to the Sanctuary and in the Narthex.
Families will be encouraged to keep children with them in the service. Age appropriate packages of materials will be provided for children to use during the services. Those who wish to have child care should contact Jodi and we will seek to make accommodations on an individual basis, based on the availability of volunteers.
Continuation of indoor services will be contingent upon stable, or decreasing levels of COVID-19 in Clark County, and upon the ability of the congregation to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
What Sundays are Like at Central
Central is vibrant nondenominational church focused on making our community more like heaven. We strive to keep Jesus at the center, looking to scripture for direction, and asking God's Spirit to lead and empower us. We care about justice, We love our neighbors, and we proclaim the gospel. Sundays are a little different with Covid-19, until we are able to gather inside the worship center our services will be online. Please visit Central Reopening for details.
