Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions you might be asking if you are considering attending in-person services. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Communications Director, Rachel Secaur, at rsecaur@chapelhillcc.church and she will get in touch with you.

-What will the services be like?

           Sunday morning will look very similar to how it usually does! We will have a time of singing, a we will hear from God's Word, we will take communion, and will have an opportunity to give of our tithes and offerings. Please read below to see the precautions we will be taking for taking communion and collecting offering. The main difference will be that we will be more spaced out than usual, and our service will be shorter (about an hour) to give us adequate time to clean thoroughly in between services.

-Is there children’s programming?

            Our Children's and Student Programming is now open! Children's Ministry (including Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary) is available at both the 9:30 and 11:00 hour. Our Student Ministry Awake Service for students in 6th through 12th grade takes place at the 11 o'clock hour.

-What time will doors open?

            We ask that you enter the doors on either the North or South end of the building that lead into the Main Foyer and Worship Center. The doors will open for the 9:30 service at 9:15 and they will open at 10:45 for the 11:00 service (to ensure we have enough time to properly clean between services). We are hoping the weather will cooperate, and we do encourage you to talk with people outside in the parking lot before and after services (following appropriate social distancing recommendations). We know this is not ideal, but we appreciate your cooperation with us to ensure we can make the building as clean and safe for everyone as possible.

-How will seating in the Worship Center occur?

            We will have ushers at each of the Worship Center doors when you arrive and they will take you to your seats. We have marked the pews with tape six feet apart and will only be seating people in every other pew. We have certain sections and areas for single people, couples, and for families. The ushers will walk you to your seats and will for the most part seat you from the front of the sanctuary to the back. We will make sure that proper social distancing requirements are met in our Sunday morning worship services.

-How will we take communion?

            We have tables located by the doors as you enter the Worship Center with pre-packaged communion sets spaced out on them. We invite you to pick up one of these sets when you enter the worship center. We will instruct you when to open and partake of them in the service. Please only touch the set you take and take it to your seat.

-How will we give offering?

            We still encourage you to give online if you have been doing so. You are welcome to bring your offering cash or checks to the church. We will not pass the offering bags during the service, but there will be boxes located at each of the Worship Center doors where you can place your offering at the conclusion of the service. You will be reminded to do so at the conclusion of the service.

-Will there be a greeting time?

            We will not have our regular greeting time in our service for a while for obvious reasons. We will be enforcing social distancing in our Worship Center by marking where people can sit and making sure there is at least six feet between each family. You are more than welcome to smile and wave to one another (from an appropriate distance) but we will not encourage hand shakes or hugs for the time being.

-Will the service still be streamed online?

            We are thankful that our service has been streaming online for awhile now, and this is not something we will stop. We will continue streaming our service online probably for forever. This means that if you don’t feel comfortable coming to the building, if you are feeling ill, or if you have young children, you don’t have to miss out on our worship gathering! As many of you have discovered during this time, you can join us online on our Facebook page, our YouTube channel, and on our website. 

-Do I need to wear a mask?

            We ask that everyone who attends services in our building wears a mask throughout the service.  This is to comply with Governor Holcomb's mandate that masks are required in all public places in the state of Indiana. We want to do our part to ensure the health and safety of those around us! We encourage you to bring a mask from home, but if you forget one, we do have disposable masks as well as disposable gloves available at our Information Center if you are in need of these. All of our children's ministry volunteers will be wearing masks, and we ask that all kids in kindergarten and older wear a mask.

-What will your cleaning procedures be like?

            Between first and second service we have a plan and many volunteers in place to clean all areas that were used or touched by people in the morning. We will clean the pews in the Worship Center, the bathrooms in the Main Foyer, as well as all door handles and other areas or surfaces that people were near. The nursery, preschool, and children's ministry spaces will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between first and second service as well.

-Will the coffee bar be open?

            Due to our concern for your health and safety, we will not have our self-serve coffee bar open for awhile upon returning to on-site worship services. As well, our water fountains will be blocked off and unable to be used. However, we will have bottled water available in the Main Foyer.

We invite you to join us on Sundays at 9:30 or 11:00 either here in our building or online. We look forward to worshipping with you!

In Christ,

Chapel Hill Staff & Elders
