& Frequently Asked Questions
As our community gets healthier and the threat of COVID-19 transmission dissipates, we will keep you updated as to the status of the weekly in-person Gathered Worship services. For those wishing to join us indoors, please keep in mind that our ability to worship together hinges on cooperation with the precautions set in place for safe gathering. Please watch the video below to address those new precautions.
- I came to church on Sunday but now I've tested positive for COVID19 - what do I do now?
As soon as you are able to contact those who sat around you, please do. If you are unsure of who they were or uncomfortable with notification, we have a deacon who will assist with appropriate notifications through the church body as needed. Please let us know as well how we can best help you in this time.
- Will I need to wear a mask?
Since the onset of COVID-19 in March of 2020, City Church has followed the directives of our local health officials and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with respect to best practices and protocols. Based on the most recent guidance from the CDC, St. Louis City allowed the current mask mandate to expire Saturday, March 5th at 11:59PM. It was not renewed. As such, mask-wearing at City Church will now be optional, starting Sunday, March 6th. This applies both to Sunday School and Corporate Worship.
- Can we bring our kids to church with us?
Yes of course! Children are welcome at the in person Sunday services - both in Corporate Worship and Sunday School. We recommend families to attend and participate in the liturgy, teaching the Gospel to all ages. There is a Childcare Co-op that guests are invited to utilize for ages 0 to 3, and regular attending families are invited to participate through sign up.
- Are reservations required for attending church?
We would love for you to join us for Sunday School (which meets at 9 am) and Corporate Worship (which meets at 10:15am). Reservations are not required and we are asking people to honor the signage reserving pews (or areas on pews) for no seating - to assist with distant socializing. There are no assigned seats but please keep your distance in mind when choosing your family's placement in the sanctuary, to allow for enough distance between yourselves and the other attenders.
Please Note: There is a possibility of contracting COVID-19 while attending City Church activities. City Church is taking necessary steps to reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus and to protect those attending our services. However, we cannot guarantee we are preventing anyone from contracting COVID.
