A Word from Pastor Jonathan & Jennie Cross

Any prayer requests you can send to prayer@thecenterpoint.org

CenterPoint Family,

     Here's an update on what's happening! 

 

WASHINGTON

Even with the relaxed restrictions, it’s more important than ever to do your part to prevent the spread of disease. Our position remains precarious and an outbreak could happen at any time. We do not want to act in ways that could risk our hard fought progress. Until a vaccine becomes available, continue to: 

 

  • Wear face coverings when you are in public and especially when you cannot easily keep physical distance from others.  

  • Maintain physical distance of six feet from others . 

  • Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. 

  • Stay home when you’re sick. 

What Phase 2 means for us:

People at higher-risk of poor health outcomes from COVID-19, such as those over 65, people with compromised immune systems, and those with underlying conditions, should continue to stay home and stay healthy. Everyone’s health is different. You should talk with your healthcare provider if you have questions about your health.

Gov. Inslee eased restrictions on many activities for everyone else:

Recreation:

 

Social gatherings:

  • Choose five friends or non-household members you would also like to see regularly. When you play, eat out, visit, or otherwise socialize, try to limit your close contacts to this group. You can reduce the risk of infection while enjoying more Phase 2 freedom.

 

Spiritual gatherings:

  • Up to 100 people can meet outside for faith-based gatherings. That number doesn’t include staff.

  • Limit indoor services to 200 people or 25% capacity, whichever is less.

  • Spiritual gatherings

  • Effective Aug. 10, 2020:  

    • Wedding and funeral ceremonies are permitted. Receptions are not.

    • Outdoor ceremonies are limited to 30 people. At least six feet of physical distancing between households is required.

    • Limit indoor services to 30 people or 20% capacity, whichever is less. Must be able to maintain 6 feet physical distancing between households.

    • Any events planned after July 30, 2020, to occur before Aug. 10, must abide by the Aug. 10 regulation changes.

       (SEE PHASE CHART BELOW FOR MORE DETAIL)

 

     CenterPoint is still taking all the previously applied sanitation precautions (such as wiping down all flat surfaces, chair backs, doorknobs, handrails, etc...).  

      If you are in a high risk category, please use good judgement and stay safe. If you or your children have the sniffles and do not feel well, stay home, rest up and get well. And as always, wash your hands with soap and water often, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and get fresh air. If you are struggling with your health, we would love to know so that we can be in prayer for you; please email your prayer request to prayer@thecenterpoint.org. 

     Lastly, we want to keep everyone in prayer who has been affected by the virus and the caregivers who are working tirelessly to minimize the impact.
