Protocols for Worship 

The California Department of Public Health has set guidelines regarding COVID19 and has lifted many restrictions. Based on these guidelines, our Church Council has set new protocols regarding our Sunday worship services. The following changes will begin immediately:


Our early (8:30 AM) service will continue to be outdoors and the late (10:00 AM) service will be indoors with online live streaming.

Registration for church service attendance will no longer be required.

Masks are optional for fully vaccinated attendees attending indoor worship.

Masks are required for unvaccinated attendees attending indoor worship and will be up to the individual to self-attest.

Social distancing is recommended but not required.

We encourage everyone to self-check for symptoms before arrival.


Our congregation has much to celebrate with the lifting of restrictions including our resilience, patience and prayer during this challenging time! We look forward to having you join us at an upcoming worship service.


How we care for our worship guests:

  1. We have trained volunteers who follow careful procedures for risk mitigation.
  2. We have posted signs with related precautions.
  3. Hand sanitizer will be easily accessible.
  4. Offering plates are at the entrances.
  5. Online giving is encouraged.
  6. Our nursery is not currently open.
  7. The entire church building is cleaned and bathrooms and high touch surfaces are sanitized prior to Sunday morning and between services.
  8. For the health of all do not attend a service if you are not feeling well, have a fever, or have had direct contact with someone who likely has or is confirmed to have COVID-19.
