BCA REGATHERING IN-PERSON SERVICES

We love being able to regather with you IN PERSON Sundays @ 9:30 & 11 AM! Our Sunday in-person services are family-style. Children who are not checked into BCA Kids are welcome to sit with their parents in the Worship Center during service. Please read below for guidelines for attending any onsite gathering at BCA. As of March 7, 2021, we no longer require families To register before attending service!

Our Contemporary services will continue to be streamed online Saturdays at 5 PM and Sundays at 9:30 & 11 AM (via live.bcachurch.com & Facebook).

We have plenty of room for you and your family to attend our in-person services. 

Face coverings are required and physical distancing will be in place for all in-person gatherings.

YOUR HEALTH & SAFETY

People considered vulnerable to COVID-19 (over the age of 65 or those with compromised immune systems) are encouraged to participate in online services until Phase 4 of the Safe Start Washington Plan.

We will not be taking temperatures or requiring signed documentation of any kind for those who attend service.

Please “self-check” and stay home if you are feeling sick, have had a fever, cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath; have been exposed to someone who has shown symptoms or is positive for COVID-19; or if you fall into a high-risk category as defined by the CDC. The health and safety of everyone are of paramount importance to us!

Face coverings are required for everyone attending and should be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth. Exceptions apply to children under the age of 2 and those with certain disabilities or health conditions. Officials encourage the use of a face-covering by children ages 3-5 if possible. Children 5 and older must wear a face covering. We will have extra face coverings (if you don’t have one), gloves, hand sanitizer, and tissues available at check-in.

Physical distancing will be in place. Please do your best to keep a 6-foot distance from those not in your household. For the comfort of everyone attending, please refrain from hugs, handshakes, fist bumps, etc. Waving and air hugs are awesome!

 

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU ARRIVE?

We can’t wait to worship with you, and our goal is for you to have a great experience when you arrive at BCA. Here are some changes you may notice when you arrive:

  • Our greeting team will welcome you near the front entrance with air high fives, air hugs, waves, and lots of smiles (under our masks, of course).
  • Please note that, following CDC guidelines, we will have a new “flow-of-traffic” for entering and exiting the building:
    • There will be one entry point into church (center front doors only).
    • There will be one exit point from church.
  • Please note that shuttles will not be running at this time.

 

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE INSIDE THE BUILDING?
You will still engage in the same quality service (worship and message) that BCA has always offered. Here are some changes you may notice:

  • To maintain proper physical distancing and allow for you to worship freely, we have closed some rows. There will be at least 6 feet left between you and attendees from a different household.
  • On communion weekends (the first weekend of each month), you will be given pre-packaged communion elements upon arrival to take when directed during the service.
  • We will no longer pass out bulletins or other printed materials. We encourage everyone to download the BCA Church APP, which provides all the links for events, sign-ups, and more.
  • An electronic version of the Connection Card is available on the BCA Church APP, which we strongly encourage everyone (guests and regular attenders alike) to fill out each week.
  • We encourage you to give online at bcachurch.com/give or by using the give tab on the BCA Church APP.  If you would still like to give in person using an offering envelope, envelopes and pens will be available on the tables at the back of the Worship Center and can be dropped in the black offering boxes located on the wall.
  • Our prayer team will not be available to pray with you during or after the service. If you have a prayer request, we encourage you to list your prayer request using the Connection Card available on the BCA Church APP.
