With the reopening of our East Campus in Montclair and our West Campus in Rockaway on Easter Sunday, April 4, we want to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the thoughtful and detailed measures and processes we’ve put in place—which were anchored by our Guiding Values.

Please note, all of our guests in attendance must wear masks (they will be made available for those who forgot to bring their own). New Jersey guidelines state participants at church activities are required to wear face masks, except children under 2.

When we come back, we’ll need the support of our volunteers more than ever to help serve our ministry and community during this critical time. If you’re interested in serving and being a part of our Reopening Team, please click the button below to get started.


Good decisions are usually reached if they cohere to the organization’s guiding values—principles that anchor us to our mission, vision, and beliefs. To reopen our facilities in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, our actions and timing will be anchored by Our Guiding Values.

Our Guiding Values

We value a healthy and safe congregation. The congregation must be safe and feel safe when we gather corporately for worship and the word. This is critically important to us.

We value creating transformative ministry experiences based on our CORE COMPETENCIES. When we reopen our doors, it’s because we can deliver the powerful Christ Church experience you and your whole family have come to expect.

We value innovative ministry to all generations. We will be intentional about continuing to minister to the entire family.

We value serving the community. We are committed to impacting the areas we serve by meeting people’s felt needs.
