In addition to our online services, we are happy to announce that we are now also having in-person worship services! To say we are excited is a huge understatement; however, we want to do it the right way, and the safe way, for everyone who attends. What does this mean? Below are details about our efforts to provide a safe on-campus worship experience for you and your family.
If you’re not ready, that’s okay! While in-person services have resumed, we understand that not everyone is ready to come back…and that’s 100% okay. If you have any concerns or health issues, we strongly recommend you remain at home and watch our online services. Online services will continue at 9:30 AM, 11:15 AM, and 6:00 PM on all of our platforms: live.communitycc.com, Facebook, and YouTube.
HERE ARE THE DETAILS
We will have in-person and online worship services at 9:30 AM, 11:15 AM, and 6:00 PM.
Programming is offered for kids birth – grade 5 at each of our three worship services. Click here for all the details about Community Kids in-person services for your children. Families can continue to access resources and weekly lessons online at communitycc.com/communitykidsathome.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What happens once I arrive?
We ask everyone to maintain six feet of social distancing while moving around on campus. Our staff and volunteers will be wearing facemasks and have their temperatures checked. Doors will be propped or held open for you. Due to these additional safety procedures, we encourage you to arrive a few minutes before the service begins.
What precautions are you taking to ensure a safe environment?
- Staff and volunteers will be sanitizing the Auditorium and frequently touched surfaces before you arrive and after you leave.
- Touchless hand sanitizing stations will be available at multiple locations outside and throughout the building.
- All water fountains will be shut off. Water bottles will be made available instead.
- We encourage everyone to wash or sanitize hands regularly.
- We know you’re excited to see each other after so long apart, but please remember that we will be waving, giving a thumbs-up, air hugs and air high-fives instead of shaking hands or hugging, fist, or elbow bumps.
Do I need to bring my own mask? Do I have to wear it at all times?
Yes. We love you and we want to protect you and our church family (especially those who are most vulnerable), so we ask that you please bring and wear your own facemask at all times. This is also a requirement by a Broward County Emergency Order. If you accidentally left your mask at home, no worries! Complimentary facemasks will be available upon request. Children ages two and younger are not required to wear one.
How many people can attend in-person services? How will I be seated?
We’re strictly following CDC guidelines for the safety of you and your family. In light of this, we will be limiting the seating capacity by blocking off every other row in the Auditorium and ask that you leave at least 2 empty seats between families. All seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
What will happen during the service? Will worship and the message be live?
Yes. You will experience high-energy live worship, prayer, communion, and a message from one of our pastors.
Will we be offering communion?
Yes. Pre-packaged communion cups will be available at each of our service times. We encourage you to take a communion cup on your way into the service, as trays will no longer be passed for the distribution of communion elements.
How do I give my tithe and offering?
There will be no passing of an offering basket during the service. We encourage you to use online giving, mail, text-to-give or drop your offering in one of the giving boxes conveniently located in every lobby. Offering envelopes will be available at every giving box.
Will there be Spanish translation and sign language interpretation?
Yes. We will continue to offer live Spanish translation and sign language interpretation at the 11:15 AM service. In addition, we will continue to offer a recording of our entire service with Spanish translation or sign language on our YouTube channel each week.
Will coffee and food be available?
Free coffee prepared by masked and gloved volunteers will be served in cups with lids. There will be no food served.
What if I want to be baptized?
We encourage people to make decisions of faith. Our Decision Team will be available at the end of each service, taking all necessary safety precautions. People who want to be baptized will be able to do so.
When should I not attend?
If you have had any of the following symptoms this week, please worship with us online:
- Fever over 100 degrees
- Cough or sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of sense of taste or sense of smell
- Contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 within the past 14 days.
What if I don’t feel ready to come back to an in-person service?
We completely understand! We will continue to offer our high-quality online worship experience. In fact, we encourage you to continue to gather with us online, especially if you or someone you love is in a high-risk category. We will also continue to offer virtual programming for our kids and student ministries as well. Either way, be it online or in-person, we are a family. As we have said before—when you’re ready, we’re ready for you!
