We Are Excited to Worship In-Person Again!
Sundays at 9:30am Beginning March 7 at The O'Fallon YMCA.
First time with us?
Below you will find some of the steps we are taking to ensure your safety while on each of our campuses.
We can't wait to see you... in person when you are ready!
What To Expect
Hey! Thank you for stopping by. Our goal as we relaunch back into our physical buildings is to provide a safe worship experience for your entire family. We have embraced the best practices during this pandemic to keep everyone safe and healthy while also being able to have a great worship experience with our community. We can't wait to see you and worship with you again!
We have taken our time to create a plan to keep everyone as safe as possible as we move toward a "new normal." Listed below is a lot of information about our on-campus procedures during this sensitive time.
Building Entrances and Exits
Please use the main entrance to the building.
Our Greeters and Ushers will be wearing nametags & facemasks and are eager to help you and your family find your way around the campus.
Sick, Vulnerable, Not Ready
We ask that if you are feeling sick, are vulnerable, or not ready to come back that you utilize our Online Worship Services. We want everyone to feel safe while on our campuses.
In the case of someone beginning to feel ill while at church, we request to be notified immediately. We have a safety plan in place for these specific instances.
Our staff and volunteers will all be wearing masks and we are asking for attendees to do the same.
Staff and volunteers, are required to wear a mask and will be temperature checked before serving. Teachers will be provided with face shields to help them connect with their students while still keeping them safe.
Throughout our campuses, we will have hand sanitizer stations available for you to clean up after touching anything. Physical contact is how this virus spreads quickest and we want to eliminate that as much as possible. In the case that you end up touching a door, shaking a hand, or really anything at all, feel free to use our sanitation stations for quick cleaning.
We will not be passing offering bags in service. However, we will provide a black box in the back of the worship center for you to drop off your tithes and offerings as you leave or enter service.
If you would like set-up Online Giving you can find out how to do that here.
Prepackaged Communion will be provided on a table in the lobby as you enter the building. We will be taking time within the service to pause and remember what Jesus has done for each of us.
The Cornerstone Kids area is now open! We will provide classes for Walkers through Grade 5 for all services. We will evaluate nursery needs in the coming weeks.
For the safety of everyone, our classrooms will have maximum capacity limits. Our goal is to always take care of your kids in the best possible way during this new season.
Kids are also always welcome to worship with their families in service.
Have questions? We have answers!
Don't Worry: We Still Have Online Services
Like we mentioned above, everyone is personally at a different comfort level with this pandemic and relaunching. If you are still hesitant about coming to an in-person church service, it is completely okay. Your safety and comfort are important to us. If you are more comfortable with still worshiping from home, we understand and will continue to offer our Online Service options.

While we were all stuck at home, we asked people on Facebook and Instagram to share their photos of what church at home looked like by tagging us at @onecornerstone and using #WorshipFromHome. There were so many great photos and videos shared over the weeks. Feel free to continue sharing more with us as you keep on worshipping!
We know this was a lot of information and there is always the possibility that we have forgotten to address something here. Please feel free to contact us and ask any questions that you may have. All of this is new territory for us and we want you to feel as safe and comfortable with the procedures as possible.
