Indoor worship begins Sunday, Oct. 18 at 10:30am.

Dear Cobblestone,

We are pleased to announce that beginning Sunday, October 18 @ 10:30a we will be holding worship indoors! Thank you for your faithfulness these past months as we worshipped together outside enduring wind, heat, and humidity.
We understand that some folks may be at a higher risk for contracting Covid. If this is you, please stay home and utilize Cobblestone’s website and youtube channel for sermons and daily encouragements. Our prayer is that the time will come soon when we all will feel safe to gather for worship.
We will continue to offer children’s programs each Sunday just as we did pre-Covid. A big thank you to Kirsten and her team for their work, and a reminder that we are in need of children’s ministry helpers.
Last Sunday, the Director’s and Pastoral Team met to discuss how to move forward with inside worship as safely and sanely as possible. We know that a one size approach won’t fit all, but we believe that our approach will fit most. Here’s the plan as it stands now:

*Sunday, October 18, Cobblestone reopens the sanctuary for worship at 10:30a
*Following the Warren County Health Department guidelines, we ask that each worshipper mask up if possible. If you have a valid reason for not masking, we leave this to your discretion. We ask everyone to be smart, courteous, and respectful, thinking more others than our selves.
*If you are sick, please stay home until your symptoms go away.
*If you want to sanitize your chair, please bring your own wipes.
*In order to reduce unnecessary touching, the weekly bulletin and message handouts as well as the two offering buckets will be on a table in the worship entryway. Hug and handshake at your own discretion!
Chairs have been scattered across the sanctuary. Pick a seat and feel free to move to a location that suits you. We would like to social distance as much as possible.
*We encourage family groups to sit together.
*As per the health department, air circulation is key in maintaining a safe environment. We will keep windows and side doors open throughout worship. Please dress accordingly.
*We will be offering Cobblestone Logo masks for a small donation for those who are interested.

We are trying our best to accommodate as many people as possible. We believe worship should be a “judgment-free” zone. The point of worship is not to make a political point: the point of worship is Jesus Christ, resurrected from the dead, savior of the world, friend to sinners like you and me. We ask for your patience as we walk through this time together.

In Christ,

Pastoral Staff: Brian Beckett, Nick Vrettos, Russ Jacox
Directors: Keith Schraffenberger, Cath Conaway, Crystal Wallin, Michelle Leisinger, Brett Stouffer, Travis Callahan
