Updated Worship Plans

In keeping with the latest guidelines from the San Diego County Health Department, worshipers seated in the sanctuary and lobby will need to wear masks as part of the effort to limit the spread of the delta virus variant. Outdoor worshipers who have been vaccinated may remove their masks if they choose. The CDC and County have recommended that all people, vaccinated or not, wear masks in indoor public spaces such as churches. Our "return to worship team" understands that opinions vary on the use of masks while indoors, and we appreciate your understanding as we navigate these uncertain times with concern for all.

We are seeking to create an atmosphere of grace and comfort for everyone. We will not screen worshipers, but those who come on campus are certifying they do not currently have COVID-19, are not experiencing symptoms, have no reason to quarantine, and will wear a mask and practice social distancing if they are not vaccinated.
