Compass Church and Covid-19: An Update from the Elders

Dear Compass Family,

2020 has been and continues to be a year of uncertainty. Thankfully, we serve a risen Savior that is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Uncertainty and its accompanying fear may be part of the world but is less so for the Christ follower.

With so much Covid-19 information changing almost daily, we wanted to remind everyone that we take the virus and everyone’s concerns and health seriously. We continue to take several precautions to aid everyone’s safety including:

  • Assembling and communicating with a Covid-19 Task Force which consists of people associated with the medical field to advise us on the rapidly changing environment surrounding Covid-19.
  • Continuing to live-stream our worship services so those who are most vulnerable or are more comfortable may worship from home.
  • Offering face masks on a stand near the door for those who would like to wear one.
  • Having hand-sanitizer available in several locations.
  • Offering socially distant seating by taping off every other pew and encouraging families to sit together.
  • Reversing the order of worship so that our singing is at the end of the service. This will minimize the amount of time we spend in the room after singing.
  • Our host-church, Columbia Road Baptist Church, installed the REMI-HALO whole-building air purification system, which proactively treats every cubic inch of cooled or heated airspace to dramatically suppress airborne and surface contaminants effectively neutralizing viruses including Covid-19.

It is our hope that you feel safe worshiping in-person and completely loved and missed if you are choosing to worship at home.

Sincerely, your Elders

Bryan, Dave, Jeff, and Brian
