These are crazy times for sure. The staff is continuing to work diligently to ensure our gatherings are safe.  

Our goals with our current modifications and plans are: 

1.  Keep everyone healthy and safe. 
2.  
Make folks feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. 
3.  Honor the governmental authority over us by following the guidelines outlined by Gov. Greg Abbott and Judge Clay Jenkins. 


What can I expect on Sunday mornings? 

  • Effective Sunday, June 21st masks will no longer be optional. We ask that everyone over the age of 10 wear a face mask the entire time you are on church property (inside and outside)
  • Effective Sunday, September 13th, when you arrive on campus, you may park and enter the building through the front or back doors. 
  • The coffee bar will be closed, so BYOC (Bring Your Own Coffee).   

What will the worship service be like? 

  • We will keep the same service times (9:00am and 10:45am) and service format as we did before Coronavirus. 
  • Effective Sunday, September 13th, AWANA programming will be offered to children during the 9am service, CBF Kids ministry will be offered to children during the 10:45am service.  
  • See below for Children's Ministry guidelines/instructions. 


CHILDREN'S MINISTRY GUIDELINES

  • We will offer AWANA at 9am and Sunday School at 10:45am. 
  • When you arrive on campus, you may park and enter through the front or back doors. 
  • CBF Kids check-in stations will be manned by volunteers that will check kids in (so that the iPads are not being handled/touched by more than one person). Check-in will take place at the Information Desk in the Lobby. 
  • Children will be temperature checked at check-in.
  • Room capacities will be enforced to ensure social distancing guidelines. Parents will be notified at check-in if a room is full and if their child will need to attend service with them.
  • The upstairs hallways and stairwells will all be 1-way traffic. Please follow marked arrows on the floor when dropping off / picking up your child. 

Apart from being super fun, what will CBF Kids Ministry be like?

  • Children's Ministry will be open to children ages birth through 6th Grade (Area 56). 
  • Children who have completed 1st Grade through 3rd Grade will meet in The Summit (Room 211) for Kids Worship. Please remember there are some occupancy limitations. 
  • Babies through children who have completed Kindergarten will meet in an age-appropriate classroom. Please remember there are some occupancy limitations. 


What precautions is CBF taking to keep us safe?

  • We are committed to doing our best to keep your child safe and maintain the social distancing requirements. 
  • We ask that you allow us to temperature screen and hand-sanitize your child at the time of drop-off. 
  • All snacks will be pre-packaged. 
  • No supplies (i.e., crayons, craft supplies, etc.) will be shared. Each child will be provided with their own supplies. 
  • All toys will be cleaned/sanitized before Sunday morning, and no toys will be shared/passed between children. 
  • As always, all adult and teen volunteers working with children will have completed a background check and be approved by Nathan Lee, CBF Family Pastor. 


How do you plan to practice "Social Distancing" with kids? 

  • For Kids Worship in The Summit: 
    • Max. capacity of 30 kids.
    • Plenty of adult supervision and encouragement.
    • We will ask kids to stay in their marked spot (which is 6' away from everyone else).
  • For children in the classrooms: 
    • Max. capacity of 8 kids, 2 adults per room. 
    • Plenty of adult supervision and encouragement. 
    • We will have tables and chairs set up at the appropriate distance. 


What if I don’t feel comfortable sending my child to Children’s Ministry yet? 

That’s okay! Your kids are always welcome to join you in the worship center (we will provide coloring activity books) or you can continue to worship from home via the online stream.

 

What precautions is CBF taking to keep us safe? 

  • The building will be professionally cleaned and sanitized before Sunday morning. 
  • We will be cleaning and disinfecting common area surfaces (bathroom faucets, door handles, etc.) throughout the morning. 
  • Please help us respect social distancing protocols by keeping 6' between families before, during, and after worship. 
  • Every other row in the worship center will be vacant, and there will be two empty seats between each household. 
  • Effective this Sunday, June 21st masks will no longer be optional. We ask that everyone over the age of 10 wear a face mask the entire time you are on church property (inside and outside).   
  • We will temperature screen all staff and volunteers prior to service. 
  • If you or your family member have shown any symptoms in the last 48 hours, we ask that you worship from home. 

 

What if I don't feel comfortable coming back in person yet? 

That's okay! If you don't feel comfortable coming in person for any reasons please continue to worship with us online. We will record and stream the service like we have been doing for several weeks. 

As state restrictions change, we will modify our plan as needed and communicate those details to you. 

We miss you and we love you.
