Update: July 29, 2020
Dear Capital Family,
We pray that you are doing well. We wanted to write and share our hearts regarding reopening. The staff team, your elders, and your deacons have researched the facts and sought the Lord regarding how to reopen in a safe way for the Capital family. We have unanimously decided that it is time to re-open and Lord willing remain open indefinitely. The fact is we need each other. We need to be able to meet, hear the Word of God, take communion together, pray together, and mutually encourage one another. We need to come together as Christ’s Church during these turbulent days. So we will return to weekly worship this Sunday, August 2 at 9am.
To protect and keep everyone healthy at Capital please read the below precautions for Sunday worship:
- If you feel sick or have COVID-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell), please remain at home.
- We will continue to live-stream worship services through Facebook Live for those of you who feel safer at home for the time-being.
- We will not have Capital Kids childcare as we start back. Of course, children are welcome to attend the service, but as we are taking it Sunday by Sunday, we feel best not to offer childcare until more time passes.
- Please wear a facemask while inside.
- Please avoid shaking hands and physical contact with others.
- Please use the front entrance of the auditorium for both entering and exiting.
- Please maintain social distance while entering and exiting the auditorium
- Pews will be spaced out and marked to keep social distance.
- Capital Café will be suspended until later in the year.
- For the next few Sundays, we will not have any hard-copy worship bulletins, though you can view the order of worship digitally here.
- Utilize hand sanitizer, which can be found throughout the auditorium.
- Offering baskets will be place placed in the vestibule of the auditorium.
- The restrooms are open; please wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer before exiting the restroom.
- Deacons will be at the entrance to assist you with any needs or concerns.
- At the end of the service, one of the pastors will provide instructions for dismissal.
If you have any questions or concerns about any of the above information, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you for adhering to these precautionary measures as we seek to love, serve, and protect one another. Lord-willing, we look forward to seeing you Sunday as we worship the risen Christ together!

Update: July 1, 2020
Over the past week, we have been praying about how to move forward to protect everyone’s health in the month of July. We have decided to postpone all July in-person Sunday worship services. Over the next month, we will continue to pray and discuss about gathering again in August. Other ministry events will continue to meet but may be modified.
- Men of Capital Bible Study will continue to meet on Zoom.
- Capital Students will continue to meet and Taylor will provide more details for the schedule and events.
- Capital Kids – please stay tuned for more information regarding events and resources for the summer.
- Please be on the lookout for our weekly Wednesday email with more information and to stay connected with Capital.
“God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.” This call and response are an affirmation we declare as we worship God in our Sunday morning worship services. God’s word is clear, “not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near (Hebrews 10:25).” Gathering as a body of Christ is vital to our corporate and individual walks with Christ. Though we will not meet in-person for the next four weeks, we want to encourage you to continue to join us at 9 am on Sunday throughout July as we have a special sermon series, “Life in the Church”, with guest preachers walking us through God’s Word. We also have the pleasure of Stefan Youngblood and Bruce Stevenson leading us in music and song.
We love and look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday, and pray you have a safe holiday weekend. If you have any questions, please feel free to
call the church office (919.247.9667) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
