In-Person Gatherings: A Phased Approach
We are currently in Phase 2.5
- Children's Ministry programming will start and end outside on Castlescape. While children are welcome in worship, we recognize that time outside to learn and play may be a healthier option for many. Beginning at 8:50, bring children straight to Castlescape to check them in for the morning.
- The nursery will remain open, but we know some will want to keep their younger children with them. If you'd be more comfortable worshipping with more distance, you may take advantage of Gathering Hall or the Emmaus Room. Both are adjacent to the Sanctuary and have a direct sound feed to keep you connected.
- Hymns and songs will be shorter, and worship leaders will spend more time masked.
Taking the recommendations of the Wisconsin Council of Churches (WCC) and Public Health Madison Dane County (PHMDC), CPC will use a combination of best practice mitigation measures and vital hybrid ministry options. This will allow CPC to be an inclusive body of faith while our community is learning to live with COVID-19.

Phased Reopening Plan
Updated: 8/9/2021 – The Session, with guidance from the CPC COVID Committee, has created a phased approach for how we can return to in-person activities safely. This framework was shaped by public health guidelines and marries scientific, data-driven concerns with the spiritual-social needs of our congregation and community.
WCC Return to Church
Returning to Church 2.0 is the continuation of the Wisconsin Council of Churches’ ongoing guidance to churches for how to make safer choices during the COVID-19 pandemic. We say safer choices, because no choice is definitively safe. We can only mitigate risk, not eliminate it altogether.
By Faith We Stand Firm is a continuation of the Wisconsin Council of Churches’ ongoing guidance to churches for how to make safer choices during the COVID-19 pandemic. We say safer choices, because no choice is definitively safe. This document builds on the recommendations contained in Returning to Church 2.0, released in January 2021 and its successor documents Bearing with One Another in Love and Love Builds Up, released in spring 2021.
