Cedarview Alliance Church,

After much prayer and discussion, we have a timeline moving forward incrementally for re-opening this summer! On Sunday, August 2nd, we plan to give the opportunity for people to attend Cedarview Alliance Church in our sanctuary, while maintaining the opportunity for you to worship ‘at home’.

In the short term – what will change? Not too much! In July, our worship services will continue online as before. You will, however, notice eventually that we will switch from pre-recorded services to a 10:30 am online service that will be recorded ‘live’. We will continue to send out the link on Saturday as usual.

This will give our worship teams and tech crews the month of July to work with new technology. It will also give other volunteers in the areas such as ushering, a chance to practice new health protocols that will need to be in place at Cedarview. Small gatherings will help test our readiness and then on Sunday, August 2nd, we hope to be ready for everyone who wants to attend in person.

What about your part? We will inform you by email about the key public health requirements for those who desire to attend or volunteer. We will also keep our website updated with that information. This will include a registration system, so that you can register prior to attending or volunteering.

Can I volunteer? Yes! We are going to need people to help throughout the summer with some extra sanitizing during the service, as well as serving as greeters who assist people with things that are new. You can contact: ced[email protected]

Could some of this change? Yes! We have many things we are now trying and learning and so we may need to change some dates as we get closer.

Thank you for participating in this through prayer, through the grace and love you extend to one another, and through helping where you can.

Together with you for Christ and His Kingdom,

Pastor Mike
