It can be overwhelming to visit a new church for the first time. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions to help you get the most out of your visit. We hope to see you soon!
WHO ARE YOU?
The Crossing is the English-speaking, multiethnic ministry of Chinese For Christ Church of Hayward -- a non-denominational, evangelical Christian church in the East Bay. For more about our church and beliefs, visit our about page.
HOW DO I GET CONNECTED?
We have small groups throughout the week in different locations, based on your current life stage to help you get connected.
DO YOU REQUIRE ATTENDEES TO WEAR A MASK OR BE VACCINATED?
We do not require attendees to be vaccinated or wear a mask but we recommend both for all attendees.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Sunday worship is at CFC Church of Hayward at 157 Smalley Ave in Hayward. There are signs and greeters to direct you to our service.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
We have spots reserved for first time visitors in the main campus parking.
For regular attendees, please park in the the auxiliary parking lot because the spaces in the main campus are reserved for 1st time visitors, elderly, handicapped, and 2nd service.
Due to limited parking, please carpool if possible.
WHEN DOES CHURCH START?
Our worship service starts at 9:30 AM every Sunday in the Sanctuary.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON SUNDAY?
We know what it's like to be the new person in the room. Here's what you can expect from a typical Sunday at The Crossing:
A service that lasts 75 minutes
Live music and singing
Friendly people who will make you feel loved and welcome
Gospel-centered, Biblically-based messages to encounter Jesus and change your life
Childcare and in-person programs for kids
A place to be yourself and meet new friends
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Clothes! Dress as casually or formally as you feel comfortable. You are welcome here.
IS THERE SOMETHING FOR MY KIDS?
Yes! We have relaunched our in-person kids' programs on Sunday. Reopening safety protocols are posted on our Children's Ministry page. Please contact Lisa Ko at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to connect your child with one of our children's programs.
AM I EXPECTED TO GIVE ANYTHING?
No! We pray that you will connect with God through the worship, and enjoy meeting people. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest, unless that is your desire.
If you cannot confidently answer the health questionnaire below with a "no" OR you do not have an acceptable negative covid test result, please stay home.
Have you or someone you have been in close contact with felt sick or tested positive for COVID in the last 72 hours?
Close contact defined as within 6 feet for a cumulative total of at least 15 minutes over a 24-hour period (CDC link).
Symptoms include fevers, chills, cough, sore throat, sudden loss of taste or smell, unusually weak or fatigued, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, muscle pain, headache, runny or congested nose, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting (CDC link).
Proof of Negative COVID Test
If you cannot confidently answer the health questionnaire with a “no”, then we require proof of a negative COVID test.
Acceptable negative covid tests: A negative molecular lab test result from the last 72 hours, OR a negative at-home molecular or antigen test result from the last 24 hours (CDPH link).
Contact us immediately if you test positive for COVID within 72 hours of attending.
We also ask that you contact individuals you were in close contact with during the in-person worship service. If you do not feel comfortable reaching out to them, we can help you contact them, with your permission.
If we’re made aware of an individual who has attended an in-person worship service and tests positive for COVID, we will inform everyone that was in attendance that day. However, we will not violate the individual’s privacy by disclosing their name. If you were in close contact with this individual, you will have been contacted.
