Next outdoor service: August 9th, 10:30am

Will you join us? You’ll need to do just a few things beforehand.

We rejoice that we are now able to meet in person for outdoor worship services, but there are a few rules we need to follow to comply with state requirements.

Firstly, we are currently limited to 100 attendees per worship service. Therefore, please RSVP for each service (links are at the bottom of this page) so we can keep track of how many people are coming.

Secondly, you need to be aware of the rules listed below and be ready to follow them. If you’re not able to, we ask that you remain at home and continue to worship remotely via the live stream for the time being. The 10:30am and 6:00pm services will continue to be live streamed on the main page of this site.


Before you attend an outdoor service, please read the following:

  • All attendees must check their temperature before coming to worship. If you have a fever of 100.4° F or higher, you must stay home. Please also stay home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (coughing, sneezing, loss of smell or taste).
  • All attendees age 3 and up must wear a face mask. You must wear a mask before, during, and after the service, including while singing. Remember, masks help protect others. Wearing one despite the inconvenience is a way to love your neighbor as you love yourself.
  • Households sit together; everybody else stays 6 feet away. Please maintain at least 6 feet of physical separation from non-household members at all times.
  • Bring your own seating. Lawn chairs and blankets are the name of the game. We will not be providing seating. This vastly reduces the logistics burden on our volunteers, and it also increases safety by reducing the amount of shared surface contact between our setup/teardown crew and the congregation.
  • Bring your own Bible. Similarly, to reduce shared surface contact, pew Bibles will not be available.
  • Bring your own Trinity Psalter Hymnal. Also for sanitary reasons, the church Psalter hymnals will not be available. (If you are a member of the church and your family does not already have a hymnal, contact Matt Winckler.)
  • Restrooms will be available, but you must disinfect every touched surface after use. Disinfectants will be provided in the restrooms and you must wipe down and disinfect every surface you touch in the restroom after use. No other part of the church building will be open. Children must be accompanied by responsible adults.
  • Nursery services will not be available. You are encouraged to keep your children with you, participating in the worship service.


Watch the weather and prepare accordingly.

You need to be responsible and use your best judgment when it comes to outdoor conditions. If the forecasted weather conditions would put you at risk, we encourage you to stay home and continue to worship with us remotely.

You may be able to participate from your car in the parking lot.

We will broadcast the worship service audio via a short-range FM transmitter in addition to the outdoor speaker system so you can listen in your vehicle. The frequency will be displayed on signs in the parking lot.

Thus, if you’re not comfortable being outdoors near other people, you can stay in your car while being present on site to participate in the worship service. If you choose to participate this way, park on the east side of the church (the side with the lawn and basketball court). To comply with FCC regulations, our FM transmitter is extremely low power and will not reach parking spots on the north or west sides of the building.

Services will continue to be live streamed.

If you think these requirements put you at risk or that your attendance may put others at risk, you are encouraged to stay home and worship online. The live stream of the worship service will be available as usual at 10:30am and 6:00pm Pacific time on the main page of this web site, https://www.graceurc.org/.
