COVID-19 update

July 26, 2020

We invite you to join us in service on Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. as well as on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm. In the sanctuary we have health and safety protocols in place. Families are encouraged to sit together so we are able to maximize seating. We offer youth services Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. No children’s or nursery ministry at this time.You are also welcome to enjoy our services outside in the quad area (Bring your own chairs or blankets). The kids can socialize and play in the playground right off the grass.  

New, starting this weekend. You can also enjoy our “drive up” services from the comfort of your own car on your FM radio. Instructions are available in the spaces in front of the sanctuary.  

We request at this time that you do not attend in person services if you are at risk due to age or a compromised immune system. All of our weekly services are live streamed for those who cannot attend.

As you join us on campus for service this implies you understand and agree that risks are involved in returning to worship, have not had known contact with anyone with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis in the past 14 days, you're not ill in anyway, and you will wear a mask entering the sanctuary unless you have a health or professional reason that prohibits you from doing so. If you don’t have a mask and would like one we have limited supplies available upon entering the sanctuary. Joining us in service implies you agree to comply with requested guidelines.

We request the you use the restroom only if you must. Please use the restroom before coming to church. Access is limited to one person at a time. Bathroom surfaces are to be disinfected after each use. Wipes are located in the bathroom.

We request that you do your best to refrain from handshakes, hugs and high-fives, etc. Obviously this is very difficult to comply with so understand these guidelines are communicated with much grace. We ask that you do your best to comply with these guidelines for the sake of the church.

We will not be handing out our weekly bulletin but encourage you to download the church App at the App Store on your electronic device where you can stay up on current and upcoming events. We will not be receiving a traditional offering where the basket is passed and collected by the Ushers. You can give through the church App, drop your offering in the Agape Box in front of the sound booth in the sanctuary or watch the screen and text your tithe and offering to the number provided. You can also mail your tithe to the church though the mail to 6501 Schirra Court, suite 303 Bakersfield, Ca 93313.

We disinfect the sanctuary seats between services for your safety and comfort. We look forward to seeing you in person or on line this week! Thank you for the grace you continue to show us as we seek the Lord in how to navigate the waters of these challenging and unprecedented days we are all finding our way through. We are blessed to be on this journey of faith with you. Let’s keep seeking Jesus!
