Our return to normal gathering capacity following COVID-19 Safer At Home restrictions will come in phases in accordance with CA State, LA County, and LA City guidelines.
We are currently limited to a capacity of 25% of our meeting space. As such, we have implemented a rotating invite list to comply with the guidlines. We anticipate that as the restrictions loosen, we will also broaden our attendence. If you would like to attend, please complete our contact form and we will let you know our availability.
Maximizing Safety / Minimizing Risk Guidelines
- Home: Stay home and do not attend church in person if you or family members are exhibiting even mild symptoms (fever, cough, runny nose, etc). Exercise conservative caution related to illness symptoms. Even if you think your symptoms are mild, please stay home until you are fully well. If church attendees are exhibiting symptoms, they could be asked to isolate themselves and/or to return home.
- Temperature: Please check temperatures for all family members prior to arriving to church.
- Family members: Consider staying home if you or family members are in a higher risk group (Per CDC guidelines, people who meet the following conditions are considered higher risk for COVID-19: Aged 65 years and older; Immunocompromised; Asthma; Chronic Kidney Disease; Chronic Lung Disease; Diabetes; Hemoglobin Disorders; Liver Disease; Serious heart conditions; Severe obesity).
- Hygiene: Wash and watch your hands. Properly disinfect your hands (washing with soap and water for 20 seconds or disinfecting with a water-based hand gel) and avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth. Hand hygiene and hand discipline are the most effective ways to prevent infection.
- Physical contact: No hugs or handshakes.
- Distancing: Maintain social distancing (6 feet or more distance from other people) and wear a face covering.

expected to practice cleanliness before coming to church and own their own
personal hygiene products for their own disinfectant use.
