In-Person Gatherings: A Phased Approach

We are currently in Phase 2.5

October 25, 2021 Update 

On October 25, 2021 the Session approved a revision to the Phased Reopening of Christ Presbyterian Church (CPC). CPC remains in Phase 2.5. Mitigation measures were adjusted based on new guidance from the Wisconsin Council of Churches, our Dane County COVID data, and the current Public Health Madison Dane County mask order.

Here is the revised CPC October 25, 2021 Phased Approach document (PDF).

This version:

  • adjusts Phase 2.5 measures to safely support cold weather indoor activities for children
  • applies PHMDC mask order exemptions for the playing of wind instruments during worship and non- worship performances and musical activities
  • adds new charts the WCC has provided to assist in determining what church related activities can be done in and how to make such activities safer
  • adds a suggested email template for messaging the congregation if an exposure incident occurs
  • includes updated references

CPC members are reminded to inform the church office or Pastor Jessica if they test positive for COVID-19 and were involved in any church activities or attended worship during the time they were contagious. While we celebrate our ability to hold in-person worship, please do not attend if you have any symptoms consistent with respiratory illnesses (COVID or influenza). Vaccination, masking, and staying six feet away from those not in your household remain the best prevention measures. Vaccination for both COVID-19 (for those eligible) and for influenza is encouraged by public health officials.



Carefully considering 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 continues to mitigate the presence of COVID-19.
