 COVID-19 and CCUM

As of 12.30.2020 Pima county had a daily average of more than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases per.  According to our CCUM COVID-19 guidelines this means we are in a “Stop the Spread: Critical Phase 1 condition”.  What does this mean for us?

 

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 has created and submitted a reopening document for every activity that happens on the campus that is pending approval by our District Superintendent Rev. Matt Ashely.  Once this document is approved we will post it here for all to read.
 
We are approved for the following
  • Recording worship in the sanctuary.
  • Conducting outdoor memorial services for groups of 10 or less.
  • Drive through events, when the current surge ends.
  • All kinds of online events for up to 500 people.
  • Small group meetings of 12 or less on campus in compliance with conference guidelines, in phase 2.
Things we are working on
  • 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 our various ministries in a way that ensures the maximum safety of our staff, volunteers, and guests.
Please Note
Food fellowship events will not be possible until we reach phase 3.
