Center City Church Safety Practices

Safe Practices

  • Wear masks before, during, and after service (disposable masks will be available).


  • Use hand sanitizer, as needed, at the cleaning station inside the gates of the parking lot.


  • Refreshments will not be available so please bring your own


  • We will discontinue children’s church and nursery (changing table available in the nursery room along with cleaning wipes).


  • We will collect tithes and offerings at a central location at the end of the service.


  • We will transition from paper to electronic bulletins. The bulletin will include announcements, scripture passages, words for songs and contact card (will come in e-mail towards the end of the week).


  • Bring your own lawn chair (we will have chairs on hand for anyone who does not have one). Place chairs in small groups to the extent with which you feel comfortable


  • We plan to use disposable, one-time communion packages (or you can bring your own communion elements), as well as have individuals and families come to the front to receive communion.


  • We will have 3 parking spaces available for people who would prefer to isolate in their cars but would still like to be present. We will be using an FM transmitter so you can listen from your radio. Please reserve parking spaces by e-mailing hello@centercitychurch.org. Parking spaces will be first come first serve. Try to leave these spaces for high risk individuals who would like to attend, but may not feel comfortable being in the large group. 


  • Please note that we will be doing congregational singing. If you’re not comfortable with congregational singing, then we encourage you to watch the recording from home or reserve one of the parking spaces to listen on the radio.


  • Be mindful that each individual has a different comfort level with physical contact. Please don't assume that each person at church will want a handshake or a hug, even if that was the norm before COVID-19. Fist-bumps and elbow-shakes are good alternatives :) 


  • We will have a designated set up and tear down crew who will wear gloves and clean chairs after service. Please leave the Center City Chairs in place at the end of service.


  • We ask you to pay attention to your personal health. Please do not attend if…
    • You’ve had close contact with a person who is lab-confirmed to have COVID-19
    • You’ve have a temperature the day of gathering
    • You’re exhibiting any of the symptoms related to COVID-19
