Starting June 7th 2020 we will resume Sunday Service at 10am.. However things will look a little different as we work to do all we can to keep everyone safe and comply with recommendations at this time. Before attending please read our guidelines.READ GUIDELINES
We take your health and safety very seriously.
In accordance with our Government advice, we are excited to begin our initial phases of reopening our church services beginning Sunday, June 7th.
Although things will look different when you return, we want to ensure that your safety and well-being is our top-priority, and want to thank you for your patience ahead of time.
We believe with the implementations we have in place, we can create an environment of safety and excellence for you and your family to come to church once again.
In re-opening on June 7th, our new permanent service times are Sundays at 10am and Thursdays at 7pm.
Below is an outline of the precautions, directions, and measures we will be taking in this initial phase based off of our State of California government, CDC, and Los Angeles County guidelines:
If you have flu-like symptoms, or have been recently sick or been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please refrain from attending
If you have pre-existing medical concerns, a compromised immune system, are feeling unwell (even if you think it is just a cold) or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 please stay at home.
Masks are requested (staff and volunteers required)
Entrance and exit points will be clearly marked with designated signs. Entrants will be required to wait in a line distanced 6 feet apart from others to wait to be temperature checked and shown to a seat.
If you do exit the building, please use the marked exit.
Individual temperature checks will be taken at the door of each person by a Newlife Team member. You must have your temperature checked before entering
Temperature of 99.4 or higher will need additional screening and potential refusal of entry if necessary
Occupancy & Seating:
Limited Capacity - Capacity will initially open up to 25% of sanctuary seating per service - approximately 100 guests per service. This means we may not be able to accommodate everyone. If you are not able to enter for our first service, we encourage you to come to our second if you are able to.
Seating will be first come first serve - We will not be doing pre-registered seats or any seat saving.
In the sanctuary, due to the sensitivity of the livestream recording, unfortunately we cannot accommodate families with children under 6 years old (6+ must be able to sit quietly through the service).
Seats will be positioned in family units 6 feet apart (Single seats are available).
Seating for Families with Children 6 & Under:
We have a new designated space for families with children under 6 to connect to our services on Sunday!
We will be streaming both services in the The Newlife Youth room for our families with young children (6 and under) to enjoy the service comfortably and safely together.
Due to the sensitivity of the live stream recording taking place in the sanctuary, unfortunately we cannot accommodate families with children under 6 years old (6+ must be able to sit quietly through the service).
However, the youth room is a spacious, safe and great place for our Newlife families to experience our services!
Family Overflow Room: (Families with children under 6)
Families will be grouped together (seats will be positioned 6ft apart for social distancing)
The youth room will be thoroughly sanitized weekly for safety
We have upgraded our youth room projector screen and sound system to ensure high quality streaming to enjoy the service
A separate room will be available for diaper changing and feeding if needed
We will adhere to a 6ft social distancing order both outside and inside the facility. This will be seen from initial check in outside the building, filtering people inside the building, and in the seating process
Please do not congregate in the foyer, parking lot, or any other areas.
Limited physical contact - Please be creative and offer air hugs and waves, and do not ‘lay hands’ on anyone, hug, or shake hands.
Please utilize hand sanitizing stations.
The Cafe will remain closed at this time.
We encourage you to please limit your liquid intake prior to attending, as we will be allowing bathroom use for emergencies only
If you do need to use the restroom, we ask that you practice social distancing as well
Kids & Youth:
There will be NO Kingz Kidz or Ignite Youth Services until further notice as we await State, Los Angeles County, and CDC guidelines regarding children and youth
Families with children will be seated in our youth room to view the service via livestream
If you want to give tithes & offerings please do so online, drop in the offering box located at the back of the sanctuary, or via text by texting "give newlife" to 77977 - baskets will not be passed out.
Did you know that we are going the extra mile
to try to keep you safe?
How Newlife is keeping our facility safe each week:
Newlife has contracted a professional disinfectant company to sanitize our facility each week. This company uses specialized Surface Disinfectant Spray and Surface Sanitizer Spray designed to disinfect and kill germs, bacteria and viruses on identified common surfaces and touch points.
Using electrostatic cleaning technology, a sanitization mist is sprayed over all sanctuary and youth room chairs and surfaces, bathroom surfaces, and additional areas of the church.
In addition to this service, Newlife has weekly janitorial cleaning done to keep our facility safe and cleanly at all times.
We will continue to implement these cleaning procedures and measures to ensure the utmost safety for you and your family as you join us in person for services.
These are the temporary guidelines to allow us to begin worshipping together in person. We will be evaluating and modifying any of these measures as we progress through this season. We look forward to you joining us again in person! If you do not feel comfortable returning to Church, we absolutely respect this and encourage you to join us online. We know that the Spirit of God is moving, and we are excited for the church as we move forward in this next season together.
