Reopening Plan

We’re so excited about resuming in person worship services! As we come together again, we want to do so in a way that is worshipful, engaging and safe. Our goal as a church has been to proceed as people of good faith and as good citizens, so with that in mind, let’s live out Philippians 2:3–4: 3.

"Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.  Everyone should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others."

Celebration has resumed public worship by Community. We have been organized in Communities for many years now, so this structure will be familiar to many of us. If Communities are new to you, simply look at the schedule below and choose a Community that best describes your family and plan to worship at that time. Worshiping by Community will allow us to engage everyone in worship without exceeding social distancing guidelines during a service.

What to Expect

Worship Passionately

  • Worship is going to be exciting from the first day we return, however, it will be largely presentational. Please participate in worship in ways other than singing. Raise your hands! Clap! (We’re looking forward to Phase 3 when we can once again sing our hearts out!)
  • Thank you for making Celebration a generous church! Continue to utilize the church app and online giving. If you prefer to give via check or cash, please place your them in the giving boxes located near the Worship Center exits.

Worship Safely

  • Per Leon County ordinance masks are required. Click here to learn more.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the building. Use liberally!
  • Groups of chairs will be spaced appropriately and families will sit together.
  • All spaces will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between services.

What You Can Do

Bring Your Kids!

  • Childcare is available for birth-pre-K by reservation at our 9am service ONLY.
  • BLAST (for K-5th grade) will return in a few weeks so this is a great time to teach your children about worship. 
  • Activity sheets will be available and we’ll have special ways for children to engage during the Sunday morning worship times. 
  • Our nursing room is be available for mothers with babies. For crying babies or children who need a break, the Broom Tree Café will be open. Both are equipped with TVs so parents can keep an eye on the service.

Bring Yourself Early

  • Bring yourself early and plan to be seated from front to back as you arrive. This will reduce repeatedly passing by those who are already seated.

Bring Your Coffee

  • There will be no coffee service for the time being.

Get Connected Outside

  • Please exit the building and connect with friends outside so that cleaning can begin promptly.
  • Our Welcome Tent and Fresh Start Tent will be set up on the runway for those that are looking for more information on Celebration or next steps in their faith.

Not Feeling Well?

  • If you are in a high-risk group, running a fever, etc, please worship online or on FOX49 from home. We’ll see you next time!
