On Sundays we gather to celebrate God and His story. We worship Jesus as a united people, explore and apply the Scriptures, offer songs to God and share the Lord’s Supper.

Imago Dei Central City has three ways to participate in Sunday services. You can gather in-person with us at 9am or 11am, or participate online.

 

In-Person Services

We will be following the laws and guidelines set by the State of Oregon to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at all in-person gatherings. Registration is no longer required to attend at our Central City Campus. Please see our FAQ below if you have more questions.

We have also made changes to our 9am and 11am services:

9am: Masks will continue to be required by all community members at this service. Staff and volunteers who are on-stage speaking will be able to remove their mask so long as they are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. As soon as they are done speaking or performing on stage, they will put their face covering back on as they leave the stage.

11am: If you fully vaccinated, you will have the option to remove your mask during the service. This means that it has been 14 days since you received your last dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. If you are feeling ill, please stay home as a form of caring for our community and watch our online service on youtube. Children who have not been fully vaccinated will need to continue to wear their mask until they are fully protected by a COVID-19 vaccine.

We acknowledge that everyone who wants to come to the 11am service may not be ready to remove their mask in a larger group of people. If you do not feel comfortable removing your mask, you are more than welcome to wear it during the 11am service. There will be no judgement as we are all at different places with our comfort and needs as we continue to transition to fewer restrictions throughout Multnomah County.

Our community has been thoughtful and compassionate of one another’s needs throughout this past year. Because of your faith and goodwill, Imago Dei staff will not be checking vaccination cards. We trust that if you have not been vaccinated or are still in the process of being vaccinated that you will protect others around you by wearing your mask.

Online Services

You can watch our online services on-demand via our YouTube channel. Each week’s service will become available on Sunday at 4am.

In an effort to provide the best online experience possible and protect the health of our preaching and worship staff, our online services are currently prerecorded.

 

FAQ

Is registration continuing for Central City Services?

Online registration for Central City Sunday Services is no longer required to attend. If you decide to come to church on Sunday morning, you and your family will be able to worship with us. Because of the size of our sanctuary, we will have the physical space to socially distance under these new guidelines while not exceeding our new capacity limits.

Will childcare be available at in-person services?

At this time, childcare will not be provided. However, children are encouraged to attend services with their families. We will be making every effort to create an environment in which kids are welcomed and encouraged to participate in our worship. Imago Dei Kids will also continue to provide services on video designed specifically for kids and families to enjoy from home.

What precautions will Imago Dei be taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

To protect our community, Imago Dei will be following the laws and guidelines set by the State of Oregon, including:

  • Masks will be required during our 9am service.
  • Masks will be optional during our 11am service for those who are fully vaccinated. Children who are not yet fully vaccinated will need to continue to wear their mask until they are fully protected by a COVID-19 vaccine. If you do not feel comfortable removing your mask during the 11am service, you are welcome to continue to wear your mask, no judgement.
  • All services will have a capacity limit determined by the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority.
  • Seating and service configuration will maintain a distance of 6 ft. between “parties” of people from the same household. People are to remain 6 feet apart from one another, except from members of their own household, at all times while on campus, including outdoor spaces such as the Central City courtyard.
  • There will be a limited number of staff members to greet and answer questions pertaining to the guidelines.

Will I need to bring my vaccination record to remove my face covering?

At this time, Imago Dei Central City will be using the honor system related to vaccination status. If you are opting to not wear your face covering, we are trusting that you have waited 2 weeks after your last dose of COVID-19 vaccine and are fully protected from the virus. Please continue to be mindful of our community by social distancing and respecting each person’s choice to best protect themselves and their loved ones.

Will children also be able to remove their face covering?

At this time, children and teens who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination will be required to continue to wear their mask during our services at 9am and 11am. Children, ages 12+, who are fully protected will have the option to remove their mask at the 11 am service, similarly to adults.
