Regathering Plan for Cumberland

Cumberland Community Church looks forward to returning to our physical gatherings and having corporate worship on campus. In spite of our deep desire to see everyone in person, we recognize our responsibility to care for every single individual in our church family and prevent and decrease the spread of COVID-19. 

We will follow a gradual, phased plan to eventually transition back into physical worship services. Our five-phase plan is based on recommendations given by federal, state, and local health officials. It also considers the maximum capacity of our worship spaces with social distancing standards in mind. 

We will make decisions on when to move between phases based on guidelines from government authorities, and counsel from health officials from our church family and the community.
