COVID-19

what to expect at CrossPointe

Your Health Is Important to Us

We gather every week for worship, encouragement, and fellowship, but we also take the threat of COVID-19 seriously.  Motivated by love and concern we have implemented the following policies to promote the health and well-being of those who attend a service at CrossPointe.

Enhanced Cleaning & Sanitization

Our team of volunteers use CDC approved cleaners to sanitize the entire building before every service, every week.  We also provide multiple hand sanitizing stations and face coverings are available.

Social Distancing

Life together is an essential part of every biblical church because we were created to live in community.  However, we do encourage social distancing at this time and we have reduced the seating capacity of our worship center to allow ample space between people who are not part of the same family.

Health Screenings For All Children's Ministry Volunteers

Our children's ministry volunteers are screened for symptoms of COVID-19 before every service, every week. 

Face Coverings 

The Ohio Department of Health issued a mandate that requires all citizens to wear a face covering while indoors.  However,  Governor DeWine has exempted all churches from this mandate.  While we do encourage all who attend  to wear a mask, we believe wearing a mask is ultimately an issue of individual soul liberty and we welcome everyone, masked and unmasked.

Our Hope

The response to Covid-19 has been unprecedented—most of us have never seen anything like this in our lifetime and perhaps you, your children, or people you know have struggled with anxiety or fear as the media continues to paint a dismal picture.

Uncertainty can drive a host of emotions—but let me encourage you to remember that our God is completely sovereign, and He is most certainly in control of this situation.  The 46th Psalm says, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble…The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

The message of that Psalm is timely because it reminds us that God is the one to whom we run because God is the One who is worthy of all of our confidence and trust.  

In these uncertain times, don’t panic and don’t adopt the attitude of those whose only hope is in this life.  If you are saved, then you are in Christ and the Holy Spirit is in you—so rest in His presence and find comfort and joy in the reality that your life is in the sovereign grip of God.  This means you can be diligent, wise and discerning without worrying or giving in to fear.  You can also be ready to share the hope you have in Christ with those who are struggling and trying to make sense of everything that is happening.  

We have an amazing opportunity unfolding right before our eyes to help people find the assurance and certainty that they are desperately searching for.  Let’s stay on mission, together.
This is certainly a challenging time in the life of our nation, but this is the time when we must remember that we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.

Covid-19 is a stark reminder that we live in a fallen world filled with sin, heartache, and destruction.  But the greatest enemy of humankind, death, was defeated when Jesus rose from the grave and now, because of His death and resurrection, all who believe in Him for salvation can enjoy everlasting hope and life in Him. The gospel is the good news we get to carry to our neighbors in this time of uncertainty.  So, have faith in God and place all of your hope in Him.
