COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

 

Cedar Park Church In-Person Sunday Gatherings
UPDATED, August 25, 2021

As we all transition back to in-person services and want to stay safe please note our safety  guidelines and outline of what to expect.

Attendance
Pre-registration is not required and there are no limits on the number of people who can attend, however, we ought to be mindful of how we gather and how best to care for each other and the wider community. Please do not attend an in-person service if you are not feeling well. You can assess yourself here.

Livestream
All Sunday services can be viewed via livestream from CPC’s YouTube channel. See link at: www.cedarparkchurch.org/digital-content/

Masks
Masks are mandatory in public indoor settings for all people 12 and older, regardless of immunization status. Faith gatherings are exempt from this policy, however, CPC is choosing to mandate masks to align with community group guidelines. 

Vaccinations
Everyone eligible is strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated. Currently, there are no vaccination requirements to join CPC gatherings.   

Children
There is no formal kids programming, but kids are welcome to join the service. Those with children may find the couches in the sanctuary allow children more room.

Hygiene
Please use hand sanitizer upon entering the church. Hand sanitizing stations are available at the main entrance and in the foyer.

Singing
Joining our voices together is encouraged, with masks.

Physical Distancing
Let’s remember that not everyone will feel the same level of comfort about handshakes, hugs, and distancing. Let’s be mindful of each other’s level of comfort around these matters and seek to show grace, love, and respect. Ask, “Would it be alright if I sat here, or would you prefer I keep more distance? Are you comfortable shaking hands or would you prefer we bump elbows?” We recommend a default 2 metres physical distance and that family groups and households stay together. 

Giving
Offering plates will not be passed around but giving can be done electronically, or cash and cheque can be placed in an offering box in the foyer. 

Communion
Communion will take place every week. Please bring your own elements (bread and cup) if you would like to participate. If you are unable to bring pre-prepared elements, bread and juice will be available in the sanctuary.
