Coronavirus Mitigation

Thank you for joining us at Lettered Streets Covenant Church!

In an effort to love our neighbors well, we continue to consider state guidelines, health department directives, and input from the CDC. Currently, we are meeting in person with some safety measures in place. Let’s continue to pray for our community and take steps to keep each other safe as we reflect the love of Jesus to others.

  1. All of our Sunday worship services will be available on Livestream for the foreseeable future.
  2. We hold a weekly in-person worship service at 5pm each Sunday. Registration for in-person services is only required for kid’s church (available for toddlers through 3rd grade)
  3. As of Friday, May 6th, the CDC has placed Whatcom County in the Medium Risk Category for COVID-19 transmission. While masks are still optional while congregating indoors, our policy as a church will be to wear masks while singing together. Please come prepared to wear a mask at least during the times we are singing. Masks will also be available at the door should you forget.

We will continue to keep track of the trajectory of the pandemic and make adjustments if the situation worsens or new restrictions are in place.

Cleaning and Air Filtration

All high-traffic surfaces will be sanitized before our service begins. 

We have MERV-13 air filters installed in the sanctuary, and HEPA-4 filters in the Kids Church classrooms to filter bacteria, viruses, and many allergens from the air before, during, and after the service.

Kid’s Church and Toddler Room

Kid’s Church and the Toddler Room are still operating with limited capacity to ensure safe spacing. Parents need to register each child 3rd grade and younger who will attend kids church or the Toddler Room. Registration is available here beginning 8am Tuesdays. Children are always welcome to stay with their parents throughout the entire service.

All our volunteers are fully vaccinated and background checked. Volunteers with children too young for vaccination remained masked.

Masking for Children and Youth matches the adult requirements. That means that, while Whatcom County is in the Low Risk category according to the Health Department, masks are optional for children attending Kid’s Church and the Toddler Room. 

In general, we are following the example set by the Bellingham Public Schools, as advised by the CDC. Disposable masks are available for adults and children at the Welcome Table as you enter the sanctuary.

All of our classrooms have HEPA 4 air filters and we still ask for parents of children 3rd grade and younger to register so that we can limit the number of people in each room and leave space in case parents need to join their children in Kids Church to help them settle. Your children are also welcome to stay with you through the service, even if registered for Kids Church. The youth 4th grade and older meet in larger rooms, so no registration is necessary.
