Reopening

How we are reopening Calvary Chapel Westside




We’re excited about the opportunity to gather in person again! 

In order to abide by the State of New York’s guidelines for reopening houses of worship, Calvary Chapel Westside is implementing the following practices for our upcoming services:

Worship Service Opportunities

Guidelines:
Beginning Sunday, July 12th, we will be offering two adult-only Sunday morning services at 9:00 am and 11:00 am.  Junior High and up will be allowed to sit with their families in the Sanctuary.  To provide that we stay within social distancing limitations, we are asking our church family to reserve your seat for the service of your choosing via the link below.

Please note that we will not be offering Children’s Ministry at this time.  However, to best accommodate you and your family in the interim, we have created an outdoor venue featuring an 18'x10' video wall streaming the indoor service.  Be assured that there will be ample shade covering! This space is also for anyone who is not comfortable being seated in an enclosed room.

Be sure to ask the following questions on behalf of your entire group before saving your seat for a Worship Service:

  • Am I showing any flu-like symptoms?
  • Have I had a fever of 100.4 or higher in the past 14 days?
  • Have I had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?
  • Is there any medical reason why I shouldn’t be around others?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, we strongly encourage you to attend our online services.

One last consideration…

Elderly individuals with what the medical profession calls co-morbidities (Obesity, High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart Disease, immunosuppressant condition, etc.) are the most vulnerable to suffer from a COVID-19 infection.  You may want to minimize your exposure to a congregational setting for a little while longer.

Health & Safety

Disinfection & Sanitation:
We have taken every precaution to establish a sanitized environment throughout our church facility.  Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the campus.  Our team will be disinfecting frequently contacted surfaces.  We are in touch with both ROCK Emergency and Exodus Exterminating to ensure our facility is properly disinfected in the event of an exposure. 

Face Masks:
In an effort to cooperate with the NYS guidelines, we ask that you have a mask on hand to wear when social distancing is not possible.  You will not be required to wear the mask in the sanctuary when you are at your seat.  Conflicting information throughout the medical community is making it impossible to come up with a definitive position whether they are helpful.  However, we should endeavor to "love our neighbor" as unto the LORD!

Restrooms:
To maximize social distancing, we ask that you utilize your restrooms at home before coming to church.  However, our main bathrooms will be available for you and your party's use. We have taken the extra measure to ensure a touch-less experience in the bathrooms by adding hands free flushing and motion detection on the sinks and dryers.

Social Distancing

Seating:
In order to maintain the social distancing requirement, we have prearranged seating in the sanctuary.

Offering:
Like always, you can give unto the LORD at any of our love offering boxes in the rear of the sanctuary or in the foyer.  For your convenience, we also have online giving at www.ccwestside.com/give.
