We're Regathering!

​We're Now Regathering on Campus for Sunday Worship. Masks Required. Doors Open at 10:45 AM. Worship in-person looks different as we continue to social distance, but below are all of the details to help you prepare.

Not ready to return? Online worship will continue on Facebook and from the Home Page at 11 AM each week!

Regathering FAQs

Is there room for everyone?
Yes, we have room for everyone who is ready to come back to do so safely following the governor’s guidelines.
Are children welcome?
Yes! Children’s Church is now back in action. Kids age 4 – 5th grade start in worship and are released to learn among their peers. Although the nursery is not open yet, younger kiddos are welcome in the sanctuary.
Are senior adults welcome?
The CDC recommends that adults age 65 and older be cautious. However, we will not stop anybody from attending if they do not show symptoms nor have they been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
Who shouldn't attend?
Anyone experiencing symptoms of illness, those who have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus within the last 14 days, and anyone who cannot wear a mask should continue to worship from home.
Are masks required?
Yes. For your safety and ours, and in accordance with the state guidelines for in-person religious services, anyone sitting in the pews will be required to wear a mask.
How will social distancing be maintained?
Every other pew is closed to allow distancing in front and back. The open pews are marked with tape every 18″. Please leave at least four 18″ spaces between households.
Will restrooms be open?
Restroom access is limited, and for emergencies only. We request only 2 people in the restroom at one time, with a parent and multiple children being the exception to this.
What will be missing at worship?
Hymnals and Bibles have been removed from the pews, and there will be no printed bulletin. Locked Offertory Boxes are located at the back of the church.
Will communion be served?
At this time, communion will not be served.
Is singing allowed during worship?
Yes, but masks must remain on.

Contact Tracing and Communication

What should someone do if they test positive for active COVID-19 after attending on-campus worship?
Contact the church immediately at 804.739.2197 and provide the date of diagnosis as well as the dates they attended worship.

What will happen if someone who attended worship tests positive for COVID-19?
Upon notification, we will use our deacon family list call system and our churchwide email communication to notify the congregation that someone (the person will remain anonymous) who attended worship on the following dates has test positive. Those in attendance would need to quarantine for 14 days. Note: This would require all staff and volunteers to quarantine for 14 days as well.

Online Worship are a part of our Chesterfield Baptist family no matter how you choose to attend weekend services. Over these past months we have been so grateful for the ability to continue worshiping together online and we encourage you to continue being a part of our online experience if you or a family member doesn't feel well, if you are considered vulnerable because of your age or a pre-existing condition, or if you're just not ready to attend church at a physical location.
