Dear University Bible Church,

This Sunday, June 7th, will mark our first in-person service in 12 weeks! We are authorized by the Mayor and LA County Public Health Department to resume our Sunday services in modified form and are following the state protocols for houses of worship. We have met all the requirements to ensure that our facility is safe as well as adjusted our cleaning guidelines to meet the requirements. You will notice signage posted at several places reminding you of the social distancing requirements, the use of face masks, frequent hand-washing and others. As a result there will be some modifications to our programming that will stay in effect through the 21 day evaluation period at which point they may be modified or continued/discontinued. Here’s an overview of what to expect at UBC beginning this Sunday:

Our worship service will continue its normal start time at 11 am. When arriving at UBC, you will be greeted at the door by an usher who will direct you to take your seat in the sanctuary. Congregating in the foyer and lobbies won’t be permitted to support social distancing requirements.

Seating in the sanctuary is marked by blue tape at six-foot intervals and staggered throughout. Families can sit together but members who are not of the same household must sit six-feet apart and the blue tape will help you keep these distances. If you are in an at risk category it is strongly recommended that you make use of our remote broadcast service which will continue to be available for you to watch at home with an internet connection.

Face masks will also be required and we are asking everyone to please bring their own masks, hand sanitizer, and bottled water as there will be no beverages or snacks. We will have extra disposable masks and hand sanitizer available on site. During the service, face masks must be worn and it is strongly recommended that congregants don’t sing. We can still participate by lightly humming the lyrics/tune and reflecting on the lyrics.

What about our Kids program? UBC kids church will continue to meet in a modified format. Children must remain in care of their household unit and not interact with other children at any time. All play areas have to remain closed as well. Esther will be emailing all the parents about the program details which will follow the fun Bible lesson and games that we have been doing on Zoom over the past 2 months. I know this will be hard not allowing the kids to go outside or to play together, but for at least the next few weeks this will be a requirement.

Services will run slightly shorter than usual – about an hour – 1:10 minutes and once we are dismissed, all guests and visitors will need to vacate the building without congregating in the foyer. Unfortunately we won’t have any all-church lunches during this time or any other afternoon programming.

Finally, our weekly Bible studies will continue to meet through Zoom for the time being. We recognize that not everyone will feel comfortable returning to service now and please don’t feel obligated to if you are not ready. This will be the beginning of a phased reintegration of our programming that will take time and move according to the required guidelines.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact us at office@universitybiblechurch.org or give us a call at (310) 474-9065. I’m looking forward to being refreshed and encouraged in seeing you soon.

On behalf of the Elders, Pastor Bryan

We Worship the Living God

University Bible Church is an independent Christian church in the Protestant tradition.

Its central tenets are found in its Articles of Faith and include belief in: the Deity and Lordship of Jesus Christ; the Trinity; Jesus’ perfect life, atoning death on the cross, bodily resurrection, and ascension; Jesus’ literal return; the inerrancy of the Bible in its original manuscripts; and our need for salvation through personal faith in Jesus Christ.

“We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behavior.”
John Stott

“He died not for men, but for each man. If each man had been the only man made, He would have done no less.”

C.S. Lewis

“I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.”

Elisabeth Elliot
