You may be aware that this week, the CDC released new guidelines stating that fully vaccinated people can gather in most indoor and outdoor spaces without masks—this is a big milestone.
However, since the California state and local regulations for indoor religious gatherings have not changed, we will request that masks be worn in our indoor services this Sunday, May 16th. Masks will continue to be optional in our outdoor spaces.
We recognize this may be frustrating for some and comforting for others. We are committed to providing a safe environment for everyone attending in person. Our commitment to health and safety remains unchanged. We will maintain a high level of cleaning and sanitation before and after events and gatherings, have hand sanitizer readily available, provide masks for everyone who may need one, and encourage social distancing in our auditorium and lobby.
Regardless of our perspectives on vaccines, masks and everything else in this crazy season, let’s keep compassion, kindness, and grace at the forefront of our actions and attitude.
God bless you.
