Dear Brothers and Sisters of Lombard CRC,
We hope to resume in-person worship services on Sunday, October 4, Lord willing.
Here are the guidelines for in-person services:
Before Coming to Worship
What will be different
Registration for services will be required so we know who is in the building in case contact tracing in required. It will also help us to know how many people are in the building and how to divide the groups between the sanctuary and Fellowship Hall. We are able to have about 65 people in each room and still maintain social distancing.
The services will be live-streamed. There will continue to be an online service like we are currently having as well.
We all long to be back at worship. We long to greet friends we miss with handshakes and hugs. Please know that these worship changes are meant to be a way we can love one another and worship safely together for now. As the situation continues to change we will adjust these guidelines using the wisdom and resources available to us.

When the service is over, please continue to practice social distancing as you return to your cars. Please refrain from shaking hands, hugging and gathering in groups to talk.If rain is imminent the outdoor service will be cancelled.

Guidelines for use of the Lombard CRC building
The elders have approved the use of the church building with the following guidelines, which are based on CDC and IDPH (IL Dept. of Public Health) guidelines and with the intention of acting out of love for our neighbors and being faithful to everyone in our congregation and community.
Please contact Sara in the Office to reserve a time and room for your group.
Guidelines may change at any time based on current developments and current CDC and IDPH guidelines.
The Regathering Team is looking forward to the church services we have planned for the upcoming weeks and months. Please know that all decisions are made with your health as top priority and exceed all CDC and Health Dept. guidelines. This team would like you to know that we seek God’s will in every decision made. We genuinely need your prayers as we continue to research safety standards and look at how churches across the country are operating at this time.
We love you all - Your Regathering Team
