Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
On Friday, February 11, 2022, the LAHC Joint Reopening Committee met to discuss the possibility of reopening the church for in-person worship. After prayerful consideration, and in light of the recent downward trend of hospitalizations and infections of COVID-19 in LA County, we are thrilled to announce that we've unanimously agreed to reopen the church for in-person worship!
As of Sunday, March 6th, in-person Children's Church (Pre-K through 5th) also resumed.
In order to provide a safe place of worship for our family and friends, we have implemented the following safety protocols:
Medical-grade masks (3-ply surgical masks with nose wires, KN95 or N95) are required for entry indoors and must cover both the nose and mouth at all times while indoors. Cloth masks are no longer permitted indoors. We strongly encourage you to bring your own masks from home, however, the church has a limited supply of medical-grade masks for both adults and children if needed.
It should be noted that only those who are fully vaccinated and “up-to-date” on their COVID vaccines (as defined by the CDC) will be allowed to remove their mask indoors when using a microphone as a participant in the service. Those who are not fully vaccinated or are not “up-to-date” on their COVID vaccines are required to wear their mask indoors at all times.
We are not requiring proof of vaccination for entry at this time.
Eating is strongly recommended to be held outdoors whenever possible. However, limited indoor eating is allowed in the social hall (with a maximum of 30 people), basement (maximum of 25), or conference room (maximum of 10) only.
Reservations to attend in-person services are not required at this time.
Please continue to pray for the church leadership as they seek God's wisdom and direction. Looking forward to worshiping with you all soon, both in-person and online.
The LAHC Reopening Committee
