COVID-19 Updates

As of December 18, 2020, Governor Brown has shifted her approach to faith communities regarding mandates. From this point on, faith communities are no longer "required" to adhere to gatherings occupancy limits, but are instead, encouraged to follow suggested guidance. With that said, we are still taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone as safe as possible by encouraging those who attend to follow the suggested guidelines below:

  • Face Masks: Please bring a mask with you. If you forget your mask, we have masks available at the door.  Kids 5 and under and those with a preexisting medical condition are not required to wear masks. If you are unable to wear a mask, please let someone know and we will assist in making accommodations.

  • Staying Home: If you are sick with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has, please stay home until you are feeling well. This also includes those who are more at risk due to personal health. Weekly access to our online service can be found at this link (please click here)

  • Greeting time: Unfortunately, the thing we ALL love is not possible during this season of gathering as a church. According to our survey, 76% of people reported that they are more likely to stand at a distance when regathering. In light of the Physical Distancing measures, and this survey data, we ask that you please respect the space of others. 

  • Communion: We will be receiving communion weekly as a body of believers. The process we will include ushers serving every individual (thus no one is touching the tray) and the elements will be placed in double cups (bread on the bottom and juice on top). We also have a tray set up in the foyer where you can grab it on your own. 

  • Offering: During this time apart, many of you have faithfully given to support the work we are doing as a church by taking advantage of online giving. For online giving link, please click here. We strongly support this as it helps us to stay consistent in our budgeting and meeting our financial needs and goals. We will not be taking an offering on Sunday morning by passing the bags. Instead, there will be drop boxes available in each room if you chose to give by cash or check. 

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, please quarantine for 7 to 10 days or test negative before returning to church. Thank you!
