Each Sunday we will be meeting for a single 10AM gathering at the Golden State Theatre (GST). Your safety is our priority and we’ll be ensuring that you and your family feel comfortable and safe while attending. You can learn more about all of the safety measures that will be implemented by reviewing our FAQ’s below.


We realize that not everyone is ready to attend in- person yet. No worries — you can continue worshiping with us ONLINE.

We have designated seating areas that are roped off to ensure that there is adequate spacing between guests within the auditorium. 

Will I need to wear a mask? 

For those who are vaccinated against COVID-19, masks are optional. For all others, we are asking you to please wear a mask. We are closely watching local, state, and federal guidelines to ensure all recommended safety precautions are implemented to ensure your safety.
