Regarding New Covid Restrictions

1-19-2021


Pastor Matt here, to once again give you an update on where things currently stand in regards to the current mandates and restrictions in the state of Oregon and what that means for us here at CBC.


Simply put, there have been very few changes since our last update.  


The state of Oregon has moved to a "Risk Levels" (Risk_Levels.pdf)  chart which gives allowances and guidelines for each tier of risk.  These tiers are then assigned to individual counties throughout the Oregon.  Currently we are in the highest level "Extreme Risk."  The good news is that "religious organizations" have been given different designation than in earlier months, therefore occupation limits are now a recommendation and not mandated.  This means that as long as social distancing and mask wearing requirements are followed we can have up to 150 people in our building.  Of course that's not possible, but it does allow us to fill the seats we do have for all those who want to be present on a Sunday morning.   


Speaking of our Sunday morning meetings.  We are currently meeting live and in person for our regular 10:15am service.  We have plenty of overflow seating so if you're comfortable, please consider joining us.


*Please note - we currently are unable to offer nursery or children's church or other children activities.  It is our greatest priority to bring those services back online, but with all of the current restrictions and limited volunteer help there's just no way we can bring it back yet.  Please contact pastor Kirk or pastor Matt with any further questions or concerns.  We'd love to help you out as best we can.*


Live Stream - We are excited to be able to offer a live stream of our Sunday morning service via Facebook Live.  You can find the link to this service in two places, 1) on the home page of our website (just click here to be directed to the link), 2) You can go to our church facebook page by clicking here!


Finally, we understand the wide ranging views and feelings surrounding these guidelines and the overall fatigue of all that's going on in the world around us.  We continue to seek God in prayer and through his word for wisdom in these matters and we humbly ask that you would join us in doing the same.  God is still on His throne and we can certainly put our faith and trust in His plan and purposes.  


With much love,


The Leadership at CBC
