Our COVID-19 Safety Framework document draws together a comprehensive safety plan for Crossroads throughout the process of reopening the building for ministry.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused communities of faith and people everywhere to reimagine what love looks like. We are learning to show our love for one another by keeping our distance. We are learning to show our care for one another by wearing a mask to keep from spreading droplets. At Crossroads, we have adapted our ministries in profound ways, the long-term effects of which we cannot yet anticipate. We are doing all of this as faithfully as we can, as we continue to discern and respond to Jesus’ call through a time and circumstances that are new to all of us.
At the heart of Crossroads’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic is the goal of maintaining the safety of congregation members, staff, and all participants in our ministries. We do this by complying with public health guidance and by communicating clearly, as required by our Regional Council. New information about the novel coronavirus and its transmission continues to emerge. We do well to proceed forward slowly, at the pace of guidance.
Due to the high number of vulnerable people who are part of the Crossroads congregation, due to our warm climate that allows small gatherings to happen outdoors, and due to the need to protect the children and workers in the on-site daycare, Crossroads is adopting a scaled approach. We encourage ministry participants to honour one another’s choices in this time. We encourage ministry leaders to adapt offerings to make it possible for both in-person and online participation to continue until wide-scale community immunity is assured.
