CROP WALK 2021 – Support Team College Hill!
Clergy Community Coalition
We have a great deal to be cautiously optimistic about but we must continue to fight! Help us get the RIGHT healthcare facility for the North and Westside Dayton community!
On July 21, 2021 Premier Health Partners announced that they would be building a healthcare facility on the former Good Samaritan site. This facility would include doctor’s offices, imaging, lab, physical therapy and Urgent Care. We in the Clergy Community Coalition believe that this is a good first step but an Urgent Care does not replace a multi-million dollar hospital.
We believe if we continue to pressure the city, county and Premier for more money especially as all three entities are awash with Federal funds that we can attain those things we and the community continue to ask for.
These additions include:
Mental Health programs and treatment
Intensive Care Unit
Outpatient Obstetrics clinic (Life Stages or similar)
Birthing Center and emergency Neonatal
Prevention/ Wellness Program
Your presence at the following rallies and meetings this month shows Premier that the community still stands for equitable healthcare for all in all of Dayton.
Help us get the RIGHT healthcare facility for the community!

OUTDOOR WORSHIP COVID PROTOCOL
We have returned to Outdoor Worship at College Hill Community Church! We are delighted to be back together praising God in this way. Please take time now to read carefully and familiarize yourself with the following protocols to ensure your safety and that of others as we worship together outdoors.
Where you can worship: You are welcome to either stay in your car in the main church parking lot throughout the service, or you can bring a lawn chair and sit in designated locations on the lawn. If you have children with you, they should remain with you in the car unless they are either released to attend Sunday school or are able to sit peacefully with you in your chairs on the lawn.
As long as you and those with you stay in your car, you do not need to wear a mask. For those who prefer to sit on the lawn, mask wearing will be optional (but still welcomed) for worshipers who are fully vaccinated for COVID. Those who will wear masks while seated on the lawn, either because they are not yet fully vaccinated or for other reasons, will be asked to sit in one area of the lawn, while those who are fully vaccinated and prefer not to wear masks will be asked to sit in a different area of the lawn. Both of these areas will be clearly designated by signs and will include appropriate social distancing for those who are not part of a single family unit. If you plan to sit on the lawn, please bring your own chair(s) for safety reasons. We ask you to adhere to all signs and usher instructions.
Parking: If you plan to worship by remaining inside your car, please park in the main church lot off Cornell Drive as directed by the parking attendants. Larger vehicles (like vans, SUVs, trucks) should park at the rear of the lot near Cornell or angled and backed-in along the fence line. Smaller vehicles and those approved for handicapped spots will be placed nearer the church building. If you plan to sit on the lawn for worship, we invite you—if it is convenient–to consider parking in the vacant grassy field on the other side of the fence from the parking lot, or on a nearby street, and walking to the lawn with your chair—to help ensure we have enough spots in the parking lot for those who will remain in their cars. If the main parking lot spaces become totally filled, overflow parking will be in the vacant grassy field across the fence. We expect that the service will be broadcast locally on FM radio so you should be able to hear the service wherever you park.
Entering the building for a restroom break: You may enter the building to use the restroom after having your temperature taken at the church door and wearing your mask. Enter the side door nearest Philadelphia Drive, not the door nearest the worship space. An usher will accompany you to the restroom. One person at a time may use the restroom, unless accompanying a child. All other parts of the church building are off-limits before, during and after the service.
What will be provided to you: During the service, attendants and ushers will:
Provide cold bottled water if you need it
Provide offering envelopes and take up the Offering in safe ways
Pass out pre-wrapped communion elements on communion Sundays to all worshipers (you do not need to bring your own elements unless you wish to)
Bring a sanitized microphone to you as we introduce visitors, offer prayers of the people, and have other needs to express to all worshipers. To avoid contamination, the attendant will hold the microphone while worshipers speak into it.
Offer you assistance if you wish to come forward for the Invitation time
After Worship: We ask that you be masked and maintain appropriate distances if you choose to greet others after worship, since the pandemic will remain with us—even if in a different form—for the foreseeable future.
