Update: July 2020
Our Regathering Committee has worked hard and logistics are in place to meet again for in-person worship. However, due to the recent increase in cases of COVID-19 in Ventura County medical professionals on the committee advised us to hold off on opening. Session voted at our June meeting to hold off meeting for in-person worship at this time. We will continue to offer online worship and will keep you informed on our plans. We will not be having in-person worship this month.
Update: June 2020
The Regathering Committee has begun meeting and is hoping to resume in-person worship next month. We are working out the details of how to do this safely and look forward to sharing more soon. When we do resume in-person worship, we will be following all of our state and local guidelines which includes wearing masks and not singing. We will have a reservation system to ensure that we are able to maintain social distancing and our 25% capacity.
We recognize that many do not yet feel comfortable returning to the Sanctuary. We plan to continue to offer online worship for the foreseeable future. We encourage those who feel most comfortable worshipping at home or in small groups to continue to do so.
We have decided not to hold any children or youth programing this summer including camps, VBS and Sunday School. We are focusing our time and attention on returning to youth and children's programs in the fall.
Please check back soon for more updates.
