Crossroads reopening

We are so excited to be returning indoors Sunday, June 21!!!

 

We are looking forward to seeing you and want to give you a few guidelines before we meet.

If you would like to read the complete Covid-19 Reopening Plan, click here.  The main points are below.


If you or a household member are sick or have Covid-19 symptoms, stay home.

  • The Minnesota Department of Health strongly encourages congregants over the age of 65 or with underlying health conditions to stay home and watch the livestream

  • We will maintain social distancing.

    • All households should sit together and maintain a six-foot distance from other families, leaving three chairs between family groups.  Every other row will be roped off.
    • Children’s Ministry and Nursery are not available.
    • When using the restrooms, maintain social distancing.  Water fountains are closed.
    • Once church is done, please maintain social distancing while exiting and wait to socialize in groups until you are outside.
    • The CDC strongly encourages everyone to wear masks in public, indoor spaces, and masks should be worn while singing.

    We are avoiding physical contact.

    • Hand sanitizer is available in the entryways and in the sanctuary.
    • No food or coffee will be served.
    • Offering plates will not be passed during the service, but offerings may be placed in the offering box in the back of the sanctuary.
    • Bulletins, kids’ bags, and individually wrapped communion elements (on 3rd Sundays) will be passed out when you enter by ushers wearing masks and gloves.


    There are three biblical principles that will guide the Covid-19 plan of Crossroads Church.


    1)    We as Christians are mandated by the Bible to meet together to build up each other.  

    • Hebrews 10:24–25 (ESV) — 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. 


    2)    We as Christians are also mandated to follow the rules of the government unless they directly violate a biblical command.    

    • Romans 13:1–3 (ESV) — 1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 
    • 1 Peter 2:17 (ESV) — 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.


    3)    We as Christians are mandated to look out for others well-being ahead of our own. 

    • Philippians 2:3 (ESV) — 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
