Our worship services will continue to be available online.



  • Anyone who is not feeling well should stay home.
  • If you are high risk for COVID-19, choose a worship option that you feel the most comfortable with.
  • We will NOT be giving handshakes or hugs, but smiles instead. 
  • We are asking that everyone practice the suggested six feet of social distance.
  • Masks are strongly recommended for your own protection as well as for the protection of our more vulnerable members. (We offer a mask-required service if that makes you more comfortable.)


  • Chairs will be set up in rows spaced six feet apart.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the building.
  • Frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected between services.
  • Unused areas of the church will be closed off to limit exposure to the building.
  • Connection cards will not be available. Check out our app!
  • Drinking fountains will be out of service and coffee will be unavailable. Please bring your own!

crossbridge kids


  • When a child initially returns to Crossbridge programming, parents or guardians will be required to sign a waiver.
  • You will be asked a screening question: “Has your child exhibited COVID symptoms, specifically shortness of breath, fever and coughing, in the last 72 hours?”  
  • For children who exhibit symptoms of a fever after being checked in, they will be temperature checked by CFM staff. If the fever is over 100.4, the family will be contacted to remove the child from the facility.
  • CFM Volunteers will self-check temperature upon arrival.
