How We're Preparing for Covid-19
With increased discussion surrounding the Covid-19 virus in the news, we want to take a moment to explain how we're monitoring the issue and the precautions we're taking to keep your family safe. As we make our own plans, we encourage you to take a look at The Ohio Department of Health webpage for more information and advice about Covid-19.
What We're Doing
First and foremost, we have no plans to cancel any of our weekend services. Our janitorial servers are taking extra precautions and will be cleaning and disinfecting the church by increasing the cleaning schedules, disinfecting commonly touched areas, and applying an extra layer of detail to our kids areas. We've instructed our WoW Team (our greeters) to change the way we greet our guests. In simple terms, think elbow bumps and waving when you say hello before service. Already, we've seen the creative greetings our members have come up with.
What it Means for You If you are well, come worship with us! All weekly activities and the weekend services are continuing as scheduled at this time. If you or your family is sick, or have been in close contact with someone who has been ill, please stay home and watch our 10:45am Sunday service on our website at Come2Crossroads.org/live-stream. We can pray with you and your family too! If you want to regularly give but you have to stay home, you can give your tithes and offerings via text message or online giving. Your continued generosity is a vital resource that enables us to continue our Gospel-mission on a weekly basis. We use Facebook a lot for church news and updates. You should friend us or bookmark our Facebook page to stay more up to date! Above All Else! Remember that we serve a sovereign God who instructs us not to live in a spirit of fear. God is good, He's faithful, and we know that He's still at work all around us. Let's continue to be the Church and walk in God together in the days ahead. We'll keep you updated should our schedules and plans change in the coming weeks.
If you are looking for HOPE and COMFORT, look to God's Word! "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Psalm 23:4
"Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1 "Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:1-2 "He said: “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior— from violent people you save me." 2 Samuel 22:2-3
We will continually monitor the Ohio Department of Health policies and procedures, and will update you in the future if anything changes.
