Why do I have to RSVP to come to church?
The State of Minnesota guidelines for churches include the use of reservation systems to ensure that worship attendance stays within levels that maintain social distancing. Along with helping us reopen at a responsible pace, our RSVPs allow us to conduct contact tracing, if needed.
What safety precautions is CPC taking?
- The Sanctuary’s air ventilation is always running; per recommendations, we have increased the outdoor air flow coming into the building and scheduled the air ventilation system to run in all spaces where people are scheduled to be. PC installed GPS (Global Plasma Solution) in our Sanctuary and a few other significant areas of the church. GPS fights pathogens and provides cleaner and safer air.
- The building has been deep cleaned; routine weekly cleanings are increased.
- High-touch/contact surfaces are being sanitized between each service.
- Staff and volunteers are health screened and are wearing masks.
- No coffee or lemonade is being served.
- Capacities are limited to allow for appropriate distancing and to stay within the guidelines the state of Minnesota has laid out for capacity.
- All guests are required to wear masks over their mouth and nose while inside CPC.
- Hand sanitizer is encouraged upon entering and exiting the building.
How many spaces are available?
At this time, we have 250 spaces available per worship service. Depending on the household sizes of those who attend, some overflow from the Sanctuary to Westview may be necessary.
What happens once I arrive?
Staff and our First Impressions team will welcome and guide you through a contactless experience.
- Masks are required; if you do not bring your own, we will have masks available, as well as the opportunity to sanitize your hands.
- Please check-in by using your RSVP’s confirmation email.
- Seating will be set up for social distancing; you/your household will be spaced 6 feet apart from others
How will I participate in worship?
- Wear a mask at all times and maintain a 6-foot distance from other households.

- On Communion Sundays, Communion will be available in individual, sealed containers.
- Following the service, ushers will dismiss rows one at a time, starting in the back and moving toward the front.
