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.

-Is there children’s programming?

            We have Children's Programming available during both services! Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary programming is available at both 9:30 and 11:00. Our Student Ministry Awake Service for students in 6th through 12th grade takes place at the 11 o'clock hour.

-How will seating in the Worship Center occur?

            We have every other pew marked off so that you can be sure to sit at least 6 feet apart from anyone else. We kindly ask that as you choose your seat, you are respectful to those around you and respect social distancing guidelines.

-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 normal 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. We are currently doing a "socially distanced" greeting time, in which 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 advisory that masks be worn 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 wipe down the pews in the Worship Center as well as all door handles and other areas or surfaces that people were near.

-Will the coffee bar be open?

            We will have coffee in the Main Foyer, but we are continuing to keep your health and safety as a top priority of ours. We will have volunteers serving coffee, so you will just need to touch and pick up your individual coffee cup. We have individually packaged cream and sugar available for you. We also 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
