The Info you need about CityView during the Covid-19 Pandemic
(if you have additional questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are so grateful for your interest in CityView Church. While the Covid-19 Pandemic has NOT changed our church’s priorities – telling the Gospel and keeping it central to our church-life – we HAVE altered some of our operating standards to minimize the risk of Covid-19 exposure. Please reference the Frequently Asked Questions below so that you can be aware of the updates we have made. Regardless of these changes, it is our hope that our in person worship gatherings continue to both glorify God and show consideration to all.
Are you meeting in person?
Yes – we are meeting at 9 AM and 10:30 AM every Sunday. We currently utilize a weekly RSVP link to help estimate our weekly numbers. Please RSVP this week HERE. RSVP closes at Noon on Friday. We are no longer assigning seats. Instead we ask that you seat yourselves appropriately throughout the auditorium. In the event we conduct an outdoor service, we will only have a single 10:30 AM service. Outdoor services will be announced ahead of time. For the most up-to-date information on our meeting times and whether we are indoors or outdoors, ALWAYS check our calendar – it is always up to date!
How can I visit/view the worship gathering online?
All of our indoor services are live-streamed and can be accessed from our YouTube page at any time (Outdoor services will be posted later in the day on Sunday). When the service is live, the link will take you to the currently-live service. If you watch via Roku or TV app, its best to simply subscribe to our YouTube channel – the live service will show up on your favorites every time you log on to YouTube.
How can I get connected with leaders/members at CityView before or after a visit?
We would love to get your contact information and have the opportunity to serve you in whatever way we can. For your convenience, we encourage you to fill out a connect card ahead of attending (or watching) one of our services for the first time. Our online connect card is found here. We will also have physical connect/prayer cards available in the seat-backs in our auditorium. You can place your filled-out connect/prayer card in our offering box.
What are the expectations for those attending an in-person gathering?
(For those looking for kid-class-specific info, we address kids classes in the next FAQ)
First (and foremost), expect to experience the joy of gathering with others to worship our God and celebrate the grace we have in the Gospel of Jesus! Let that joy penetrate your heart and stir your expectations! Do not forget to make eye contact with one another and smile at one another – this is important in an atmosphere where hugs and handshakes have become less common.
People have different comfort levels as to contact and proximity – be respectful, considerate and kind towards others. When in doubt, ask! People are generally winsome in responding to comfort-level inquiries. Think the best of your fellow worshipers and do not be quick to take offense in these matters.
Communion elements will be safely and individually partitioned out beforehand (pre-packaged, air-tight elements are available upon request). There will be four communion locations from which you can pick up the elements for your family and return to your seat.
Finally, please consider wearing a face (mouth/nose) covering while in our services. While not a guarantee against Covid-19 spread, most health professionals (including our own) consider this our best option. In case it’s not obvious…if you feel ill, please stay home and join us via the live-stream.
What is CityView doing with children’s classes?
CityKids classes are offered during our 10:30 am service for children up to the 6th grade. An RSVP is required for each child attending CityKids, and can be done using the above RSVP link. Teachers wear masks at all times. Masks for students are optional. CityKids classes are technically limited in size based on room size, BUT we will be flexible and try to accommodate above our threshold (in response to demand). We would rather be above our limits and problem-solve by finding additional teachers and employing unused class spaces rather than turn a child away from a class where telling the Gospel is our first priority. For a complete list of our Covid-19 CityKids policies, please visit this link.
Where can I find more information on getting connected with a CityLife Community Group (small group)?
For an up-to-date list of our CLC groups, please visit our website. You can reach out to the leader of the group you are interested in for more information on their group.
