Join us for Worship on Campus

 

RSVP for Sunday services weekly starting on Monday.

 

 

More venues and more service times make it easy to join us!

 

 

If you are new to Chapel Pointe, let us know if we can help you as you RSVP.

 

Not ready to attend services in person? We are thankful that live-streaming of our services will continue to be a part of how we connect for worship. If we all selflessly love one another during this time and put others first, the transition is going to be a time where we will see God move in ways we cannot even imagine.

What to Expect and Frequently Asked Questions

Why have we reopened our doors?

The elders and leadership team have invested much prayer, thought, and fasting every step of the way and are unified in where the church is headed. They have not taken the decisions they make lightly and care tremendously for the people they lead and the community at large.

We know that Michigan, beginning on March 24 with Executive Order 2020-21, will not penalize churches that gather — “Consistent with prior guidance, a place of religious worship, when used for religious worship, is not subject to penalty under section 14.”

We trust that each individual will have to choose whether it is in their best interest to attend. We are asking those that are sick, are in a vulnerable population, as well as those that might feel uncomfortable attending to stay home and join us on livestream. We are a unified body of believers, even when we are apart.

Will masks be mandatory? What about maintaining 6 feet?

Masks are not mandatory, except for the 11:30am service in the gym. We will leave that up to each individual to make the decision to wear a mask or not and encourage anyone that feels more comfortable to please know that masks are welcome at any time, in any venue. Not everyone is ready yet for a handshake or a hug. We would love your help to create an environment that is comfortable for the majority, so that means limiting personal contact as much as possible for the time being. By being courteous, even if we don’t agree, we can prove that our love for one another is even more real than our hug or handshake!

What is the church doing to keep things clean?
We are following CDC recommendations for cleaning, hand sanitizer will be available, and high touch points will be thoroughly sanitized before, during and after each service. While we are doing our part to keep things clean, we know that it is up to each individual to choose whether it is in their best interest to attend. Please know that you come at your own risk.
Will cpKids be open?

Programming for cpKids of all ages, birth – 5th grade, will be available at all three services! We want to give kids a space to discover Jesus and live for Him! cpKids rooms will have capacity limits and an RSVP is required to reserve a spot for your child. Check in to the cpKids Family Guest Services desk on Sunday morning. Birth through 3rd grade will meet on the lower level, while 4th and 5th grade will meet on the upper level. We encourage only one parent to enter cpKids for drop-off and pick-up to help limit hallway traffic and congestion. While all classrooms will be sanitized before each use, anywhere people are present there is a risk of COVID-19. Masks are not required but are welcomed.

What about cpStudents?

Ministry will look different in this season, but we know the importance of students gathering together to be transformed in Christ’s image. cpStudents will have a combination of meeting in host homes and monthly gatherings. For more detailed information, head to chapel-pointe.org/students. You can stay up-to-date by following us on social media, parent emails and texting “STUDENTS” to 616-662-8801 for text notifications. 

What is the difference between the Gym and the Worship Center?

Gym Venue:

  • Socially Distanced Seating
  • 150 Max Capacity Per Service
  • Masks are welcome at any time, in any venue, but are required for the 11:30am service in the Gym.
  • Touchless service (open doors, no offering buckets passed)
  • Live Feed of Worship Service on Screen

Worship Center:

  • Spaced Out Seating
  • Less than 50% Max Capacity Per Service
  • Masks are welcome and left up to each individual to decide.
  • Touchless Service (open doors, no offering bucket passed)
  • Live Worship Experience with Worship Team and Teaching in Person
Can I invite guests?

YES! Please RSVP your guests. If you are bringing guests at the last minute and your preferred venue is full, please take a seat last or join us in the Chapel or the Gym!

Where do I park? What happens once I arrive for worship?

The doors will open 20 minutes before the start of each service. If you RSVP for the gym, you will park in the west parking lot and come in Entrance A. If you RSVP for the worship center, you will park in the new, lower parking lot and come in Entrance C. When you arrive, you will be asked to find a place to sit. Please be respectful of those around you.

What happens when it is time to leave after worship?
You will be dismissed at the end of the service and asked to exit out the door you came in. This will allow our cleaning team to prepare for our next service. In the worship center, you will be able to exit from the back of the room and the glass doors that lead to the parking lot.
Should Small Groups meet face-to-face?

We are so grateful for the CP small groups during this time. The prayer, care and ministry has been an expression of the love of Christ to one another and our community. The decision to meet face to face is left up to the discretion of each group. Participation in the group will be up to each individual.  In the spirit of Christ-like love, please be patient and sensitive to each member of your group and their level of comfort as we begin to re-engage face-to-face. Many groups have gotten creative as they meet outside, in parking lots and in their homes.

Is the building open?
For the time being, the building will only be used for worship services on Sunday mornings once we reopen and staff use as they return to the office. We will post updates about building usage for Bible studies and other gatherings as those decisions are made.
