When Can We Go Back To Normal!?

As part of the connection of United Methodist Churches in the Desert Southwest Conference, Christ Church United Methodist is expected to comply with the guidelines of the Conference and directives of Bishop Hoshibata.  As Christians participating as Methodists part of our discipline is agreeing to first do no harm, then do all the good we can, and finally to stay in love with God.  This is the answer to why we are doing what we are doing right now.
Christ Church is required to submit reopening plans for every in person activity that happens on the campus and these plans must be approved by our District Superintendent Rev. Matt Ashely.
We are approved for the following
  • Recording worship in the sanctuary.
  • Conducting outdoor memorial services for groups of 10 or less.
  • Drive through events.
  • All kinds of online events for up to 500 people.
We are working on plans for
  • Drive in worship or outdoor worship in compliance with conference guidelines.
  • Small group meetings of 10 or less on campus in compliance with conference guidelines.
Things we are thinking about
  • How do we offer and continue our music ministry during COVID-19?
  • What will worship look like when we can meet indoors?
  • How do we keep providing online resources for those who cannot gather during COVID-19, when we go back to in person meetings.
  • How do we do children, youth, and family ministry during COVID-19?
  • How do we open the office in a way that ensures the maximum safety of our staff, volunteers, and guests.
Please Note
Food fellowship events will not be possible until
  • The Bishop initiates the Phase 3 re-opening process,
  • The church leadership and pastor in consultation with the District Superintendent and the Christ Church reopening team feels we have proper protocol for protection in place to mitigate the risk involved in such processes, and
  • We have the staff and volunteer procedures in place to meet our conference regulations.
