COVID PRACTICES

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit...

Face coverings

As of March 4, 2022, the Mendocino County Health Officer has lifted the "universal indoor masking" order. While masking is now optional, the county is continuing to recommend the use of facemasks while gathered indoors, especially for those who have vulnerabilities.

what we're doing

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have committed to:

Joyful Worship of God

Humble Submission to Local Authorities

Selfless Love for Neighbor

We continue to gather inside our Worship Auditorium on Sundays, "singing to God with gratitude in [our] hearts" (Col. 3:16). We continue to provide well-ventilated and air-purified spaces for our gatherings, as well as hand sanitizer and ample space for distancing, as recommended by our local authorities (1 Pet. 2:13-17). And we continue to apply the gospel to all our interactions with one another, especially in mindfulness of the vulnerable (Phil. 2:3-4).

In all of this, we continue to trust in the goodness of our God as we recognize his providential kingdom purposes. In his sovereignty, the Lord has allowed the pandemic "for such a time as this" (Esth. 4:14). Our response is to remain faithful to him as we continue to pursue Christlike goodness in all that we do (1 Pet. 2:12), with the hope of Christ in our hearts (1 Pet. 5:10-11).
