Download the Ruth Devotional

Written by Ken Miller, our Minister to Men, this 10-part devotional will take you deeper into the book of Ruth. It’s a story of God at work in the lives of everyday people — Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. We hope it encourages and helps you see that God is at work in the details of your life too!

FAQ’s About Resuming In-Person Worship

Below are a few questions that people have recently been asking about our plans to resume in-person worship. If and when you feel ready to attend an in-person service, here is some helpful information to know.

*FAQ’s Posted on May 21, 2020

When will Christ Chapel resume in-person worship services?

Weeks ago, the CCBC leadership assembled a “Reopening Task Force” comprised of key staff members and crisis and medical experts. This task force created a plan for us to rejoin one another safely on our campuses, and was based on the recommendations from Governor Abbott, the CDC, Texas Department of State and Health Services and much prayer. This week the Elder Board voted to move forward with this plan. There is a great deal of preparation needed by the church staff and leadership before we are ready to join with one another on campus for corporate worship, but provided there are no significant changes in the task force’s recommendations, our goal is to be ready to meet in person for corporate worship – although at a reduced social distance capacity – toward the end of June, but no later than July 5.

 

What is the church staff doing now to prepare for our return to Sunday worship?

The plan to rejoin with one another will happen in phases. Phase 1 is complete and Phase 2 is underway. Phase 2 brings all our staff back on campus to learn new day-to-day office and work protocols and to prepare for Sunday in-person worship services. Additionally, there is some time between each phase to provide adequate time for evaluation and confirmation in order to ensure the highest level of safety for our staff and our church body. The Elder Board meets every week to discuss the progress and then to vote as to whether it is appropriate to move on to the next phase. Once we are ready to reunite on campus, we will do so in phases as well. In the beginning, we will be practicing social distancing, will be limited in capacity and will require online reservations to attend. We will reveal more details to this plan as the time gets closer.

In the meantime, are there options for worship other than streaming?

Many of our home groups have been meeting together via online technology (Zoom, GoToMeeting, Webex, etc.) during this time of sheltering in place. In fact, we are hearing of instances where people are beginning to have small gatherings in outdoor venues like their backyard. We have also heard of members hosting two to four people in their home to stream a Sunday service, have a Bible study or to break bread together. The Elder Board is in favor of these gatherings provided that social distancing and other State and CDC precautions are in place! (These protective measures can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html.) This is a decision every home group or family should make for itself. Please be considerate of each other’s viewpoint regarding COVID-19 as each person/family will need to act according to their own comfort level. For those who are not comfortable gathering in groups, please find ways to include them. This might mean a hybrid model where the group meeting in person also provides a Zoom opportunity for those who are unable to attend, for example.

How will we hear about the church resuming in-person worship services?

Each week in our Sunday worship service, our goal is to give you any new updates from the pulpit as to where we are in the reuniting process. However, we will not gather together in person again until we believe we have the protocols in place to make it as safe as we can for everyone in attendance. But please make no mistake, we are eager to be together again in person just as soon as we safely can!
