COVID-19 UPDATE / New Service Times

Now that we have been given approval to meet, Cedar Crest will have services at the church on a modified basis beginning this Sunday May 17th.  The modifications will be based on the ideas of our being careful, cautious, and compassionate. (You knew that they all had to start with the same letter, right?) JWe will absolutely monitor any issues that surface in the next few weeks and make adjustments as needed. 

Beginning with the services this Sunday, May 17th, the following modifications will be in place:

1.       We will have worship services at church again with 3 different worship times available to attend. This will help us comply with congregational numbers limitations and distancing requirements. The service times are as follows:

2.      All on-line platforms through our Blog and Facebook (Tuesday Devotional, Thursday Bible Study and 8:30am Sunday Live Stream Service) will continue as we are currently doing.

3.      We will use our round white tables in the worship center to accommodate distancing requirements.

4.      We will ask family units to sit together around the tables and couples can sit across from one another at the tables.
