CRAT Update and Survey 5.28.2020

It is highly likely that we will move into Phase 3 of Restore Illinois on Friday, May 29, which means that public gatherings of 10 or fewer will be allowed. CRAT has determined that Life Groups, small group ministries (e.g., Finally Free, Divorce Care), and church office operations can resume, but all groups must follow the Phase 3 guidelines provided by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) for offices (see link here: Phase 3 guidelines for offices). CRAT is currently working on additional guidelines which are specific for these three groups and expect to distribute these guidelines on Monday, June 1.   Note: the health of our church family and community is of utmost importance, and therefore, if groups can continue to meet virtually, they should do so.
Also, CRAT would like to gauge your current thoughts and feelings about returning to regular church activities when our government lifts its ban on public gatherings of 50 or fewer people during Phase 4 of Restore Illinois, which could happen as early as late-June. Everyone at North Sub is encouraged to complete the survey which is located at this link: North Sub Survey. The last day to submit your survey answers is Sunday, June 7.
