For the time of the pandemic we have followed the following policy:
We have chosen to follow Jesus' commandment to care for our neighbor, especially our most vulnerable neighbors (Matthew 22: 37-40), during the coronavirus/COVID19 pandemic. While we are not gathering at the church building, we have chosen to see this as a time for us to try new ways to worship, learn, pray, and stay connected ...after all, God is always doing new things (Isaiah 43:1-19)! In these difficult times, we are committed to continuing to find ways to be the church. Don't hesitate to be in touch if you need something, especially help...getting groceries or medicine, figuring out how to do all this online stuff, or just needing to chat. We are here to help!
Yesterday, the county of Riverside changed to red tier status which allows us to operate inside at 25% capacity. The Session anticipated this change and voted not to resume indoor worship at this time. We will still consider the health and safety of our members as our priority and will not gather indoors.
Our renters have been given permission to use the building following red tier guidelines. However, a current complication is that there was a “water catastrophe” in the men’s room and our insurance has contractors fixing the problem. Therefore, there are no facilities available for anyone who is going to use the building. We will still consider the health and safety of our members as our priority and not gather indoors.
We will be receiving a grant from the presbytery for equipment to live stream and record our service and keep you informed about any changes.
