REOPENING OUR FACILITIES
Weekend of October 24-25
With the reopening of our East Campus in Montclair and our West Campus in Rockaway set for the weekend of October 24-25, we want to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the thoughtful and detailed measures and processes we’ve put in place—which were anchored by our Guiding Values. When we reopen on the weekend of October 24-25, we will have officially entered Phase 2 of our phased reopening approach (see below).
Please note, all of our guests in attendance must wear masks and gloves (these items will be made available for those who forgot to bring their own). New Jersey guidelines state participants at church activities are required to wear face masks, except children under 2.
And now that we’re back, we’ll need the support of our volunteers more than ever to help serve our ministry and community during this critical time. If you’re interested in serving and being a part of our Reopening Team, please click the button below to get started.
Good decisions are usually reached if they cohere to the organization’s guiding values—principles that anchor us to our mission, vision, and beliefs. To reopen our facilities in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, our actions and timing will be anchored by Our Guiding Values.
We value a healthy and safe congregation. The congregation must be safe and feel safe when we gather corporately for worship and the word. This is critically important to us.
We value creating transformative ministry experiences based on our CORE COMPETENCIES. When we decide to reopen our doors, it’s because we can deliver the powerful Christ Church experience you and your whole family have come to expect.
We value innovative ministry to all generations. We will be intentional about continuing to minister to the entire family.
We value serving the community. We are committed to impacting the areas we serve by meeting people’s felt needs.
Reopening our facilities will occur over three phases and we are now in Phase 2, which adheres to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order (effective September 4, 2020) of allowing up to 150 people indoors at places of worship.
In the planning of our reopening, the decisions that were made were in coherence with our Guiding Values—principles that anchor us to our mission, vision, and beliefs. Check out our timeline below to get a glimpse of our journey toward Reopening Weekend (October 24-25):
