In-Person Worship Guides
Device Friendly Guide: best for phone viewing while you are at the service.

Parking
Please park in the lot off of Sharon View Road and gather for service in the lot off of Carmel Road (map linked in the “device friendly guide” above).

Seating 
We encourage you to bring chairs to sit on. Typically, the sun is very bright in the center of the parking lot so try to position yourself accordingly depending on the outside temperature and your comfort level.

If you need accessibility assistance to get down to the lower level parking lot where the service takes place (down a few stairs), please contact Stephane Jeanrenaud at (704) 726-4099.

Fall 2020 Communion Dates
November 22 | December 20

When we celebrate communion, the elements (juice and cracker) will be individual, pre-packaged servings. Those participating will open the pack themselves. The communion serving packs will remain boxed from the manufacturer and will only be carefully handled with gloves immediately before the service. Of those who are invited to the table (communing members of our church or any faithful church), participation is optional, as always. If you are not comfortable taking the elements due to possible exposure, then you are welcome to refrain from participating. Everyone will remain in their seats to be served. Prior to serving the elements, deacons will distribute hand-sanitizer for anyone who wants it. Next, elders in masks and gloves will go aisle by aisle and distribute the pre-packaged communion packs on trays, to avoid handling them. Once all have been served, we will partake together as usual. GF option available.

Giving
We will now have deacons safely carrying around the offering basket for those who want to give Sunday morning. If you would like to give online or have questions about giving, click here or email Missy at bookkeeper@crossparkchurch.org

Social Distancing & Safety
Please resist the temptation for your family to sit down with friends or for kids to go sit with friends. In addition, we are recommending face coverings to all who are able throughout our worship service, while also sitting six feet apart. We will have some extra masks available if needed, but we encourage you to bring your own. Our officers are committed to wearing masks, except when speaking up front. We will also have hand sanitizer available.  

Weather
If there is rain in the forecast, we will be sure to send out an email pending cancelation of our outdoor service. You can also check our Facebookand Instagram for these cancelation notices.

Kids
Childcare is not available; however, we are providing activity bags for younger children (in a basket near the worship team). Children of all ages are welcome, but it is important that we help them stay socially distanced from other families. We hope to see you there!

Bathrooms
Bathrooms are available in the two buildings close to the worship area (please see map linked in the “device friendly guide” above for specific locations).
