Alameda County Health Department has authorized places of worship to resume in-person services beginning June 20th. Christ’s Community Church plans to resume our in-person worship service on June 28th, and our live broadcast will continue.
we have mentioned before, a team appointed by Council developed an
opening plan following the guidelines of CAL OSHA’s directives.
One of the resources we used offered four guiding principles for churches as they move forward with reopening:
1.We are guided by God through uncertainty.
the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness God’s people discovered
they could depend on God to provide for their needs. As people of faith,
we can move forward in confidence that we are not alone because we
trust in a Provider who is good.
2.We are guided by love for our neighbors.
asked by an expert in the law to name the greatest commandment Jesus
replied "Love the Lord your God…Love your neighbor as yourself."
(Matthew 22:37-39). As we consider when and how to reopen our doors, we
must let love for our vulnerable neighbors guide us.
3.We are guided by the best available science.
Micah 6:8 we are called to “walk humbly with God”, the need for which
we may feel even more acutely in vulnerable, uncertain times like we’re
facing now. This humility should lead us to keep being guided by the
best available science that enables us to protect our communities. As we
keep learning from people who God has gifted to do rigorous science, we
will find the best ways to do ministry and worship together while
mitigating health risks.
4.We are guided to rejoice and find meaning even in our current trials.
all of us are eager to return to “normal” Christians are equipped to
find meaning in our current circumstances. Throughout history, our
identity has been shaped when circumstances were not as we would have
chosen. Followers of Jesus can celebrate and participate in acts of
kindness and love in a world that feels particularly chaotic. As people
who have discovered meaning in the person of Jesus, we can live that out
even-and perhaps particularly- in these difficult circumstances, as
“the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10)
We will inform you about further details regarding our reopening. The way we experience church will be different with the new OSHA guidelines. Even with the changes, we will continue to worship and adore our Savior, Jesus Christ! Watch our Facebook page and this page for further information.
