What you are asked to do and understand before and as you arrive.
Those with any signs or symptoms of any acute illness(whetherit is COVID-19 or not) MUST stay home, as should those who have come into contact with COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that parishioners who are 65 or older, especially those living in long-term care facilities and who suffer from serious medical conditions such as cardiac and/or pulmonary disease, diabetes, a compromised immune system, or other underlying health issues, participate in live-streamed services home at this time. Questions should be directed to your healthcare provider.
At the present time, seating in our sanctuary is limited to 100 people by the State of California and local health department regulations on social gatherings. Additional seating in the Event Center and Parish Hall will also be made available. Reservations are necessary to accommodate the limited number of worshippers that we are allowed in a fair manner. Online and phone-in reservations will be required of those desiring to attend. Those arriving to church without a reservation may be turned away if there are no available seats.
PREPARE FOR OFFERINGS IN ADVANCE
To minimize the handling and exchanging of currency in the church, please consider either making your stewardship and donations and candle purchases through electronic giving or by preparing your offering in an envelope to be brought to church and deposited in the Narthex or mailed to the Church Office.Trays will not be passed during the service.
