This Sunday will mark one year since we first canceled in-person worship services at c|Life due to the COVID–19 pandemic. Over these past 12 months, we have seen the best and worst of humanity as the world has grappled with navigating through this health crisis. We have also seen the Church that Jesus imagined and established rise to the occasion. Thousands of churches, including our own, launched online ministries practically overnight to help bridge the gap that was created when physical gatherings were prohibited. Despite all that has been thrown at it, the church has remained strong and focused on connecting people to God and one another.
Rest assured, we have never taken lightly the decisions we have made along the way to shepherd and lead this body through such a unique time in our history. We recognize that part of the burden of leadership is to make decisions that keep the church tethered to its calling, even when those decisions may not be popular. Our guiding principle throughout this season has been and will continue to be based on our primary purpose as a church. We believe the church exists to accomplish a number of things, but its primary calling is to care for the spiritual health of the people God has entrusted to our care. As a result of that focus, we will begin instituting the following protocol changes, effective Sunday, March 14, 2021:
- Masks will be required at our 8:30 a.m. services (Forney, Sunnyvale, Kaufman).
- Masks will be encouraged at our 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. services (Rockwall) and our 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. services (Forney, Sunnyvale, Kaufman).
- We request that you please make reservations for Sunday morning worship experiences (clifec.com/reservations). This allows us to spread people out more evenly and reduce the likelihood of overcrowding since we have reduced room capacity to allow for social distancing.
- It is no longer necessary to reserve space for Preschool and KidsMin. All attendees will check-in upon arrival at one of our check-in kiosks.
The greatest honor of our lives is to serve alongside the people that make up Community Life Church. We are humbled that God has allowed us to lead during this incredible time in church history. Because of you and your faithfulness, c|Life has been able to keep fencing out, moving forward, and reaching new heights, and we truly believe that the best is yet to come!
— David, Paul and Randy
