COVID-19 Changes to Church

Below are some changes to expect as you return to church in the coming weeks. We hope these policies and safety measures make you feel comfortable and confident in the safety of our church's gatherings. If you have any questions regarding these protocols, please email us or call the church office at (408) 295-3605.


    10:00 AM - 11:00 AM ... Small Group Bible Studies

    11:15 AM - 12:15 PM ... Worship Service

  • Face Masks

    • Fully vaccinated people may choose to not wear masks on church property, (both indoors and outdoors).*
    • People who are not yet fully vaccinated (two weeks after their final dose) must wear masks for all indoor gatherings.
    • Since children under 12 are currently ineligible for vaccines and are therefore "unvaccinated," our PromiseLand classes will still require all children to wear masks. Adult teachers and volunteers - even if fully vaccinated - will continue to wear masks too.
    *We will not require proof of vaccination. Instead, we'll employ the honor system, trusting our church family to live with the honesty, integrity, and selflessness that Christ calls us to exhibit.
  • Social Distancing

    Our small groups and worship services will continue to offer socially distanced seating for those who request this option, but will also allow people to sit with others outside their households if desired. Additional distanced seating for the Worship Service is also available in the sanctuary overflow area (in the fellowship hall) for those who would like to sit next to open windows.

    All attendees must use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the premises and are encouraged to practice social distancing

  • PromiseLand Kids

    PromiseLand's Nursery, KinderClass, and Big Kids classes are in full swing during the 11:15-12:15 Worship Service hour. (At this time, no children's classes or childcare is available during the 10:00 Small Group hour.) 

    Learn how we're keeping our classrooms safe for all our families!

  • no food or drinks indoors

    Initially, coffee and refreshments will not be provided before nor after service. You may bring your own beverage or snack to church, but these must be enjoyed outdoors. Then please remember to use hand sanitizer immediately afterwards!

  • Cleaned and Sanitized

    All meeting areas and restrooms are thoroughly cleaned before every church gathering using Lysol and Purerox™ disinfectants to sanitize all surfaces. 

    Our PromiseLand children's classrooms are also equipped with HEPA air purifiers, and our large windows remain open during class to provide plenty of air circulation. 

  • When to Stay Home

    Please stay home if you are not feeling well or if you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and you yourself have not been fully vaccinated. Also, if you are not yet fully vaccinated and have traveled by plane during the past 10 days, please stay home.
