Proactive Cautionary Measures in Response to COVID-19
While there have not been any reported cases of COVID-19 in Waco, Christ Church will be taking several precautionary measures in order to protect our members, prevent the spread of the virus, and care for those who may be sick. 1. We are asking the following groups to remain home:
- Anyone with a cough or feverAnyone with children who have a cough or fever
- Anyone who is at a higher risk of contracting the virus to remain at home.
Please contact the church office if you are at home and would like to have a priest visit your home and serve Communion.
If you are in need of meals, household supplies, or other items and are not able to leave your home, please contact the church office and someone will deliver the items you need.
Christ Church sermons and the Wednesday night study on 1 Peter will be available on the Christ Church podcast. 2. Nursery childcare is cancelled for Sunday, March 15. 3. You are invited to attend the 8:30 am service in an effort to redistribute our numbers so that each service has approximately 100 people. 4. On Sunday, you will notice that entrances to the building will be restricted to the rear door near the playground. Upon entry, everyone will be directed to use the hand washing stations set up in the kitchen. 5. Following the 10:45 am Eucharist, the church building will be throughly cleaned and sanitized. 6. The Vestry has purchased several air purifiers, which will be installed in the Nave and in the Parish Hall.
