Outdoor Worship FAQs
Sundays at 11AM
The good news is that a few days before Christmas, Los Angeles County reversed its ban against indoor religious services. The bad news is that the Coronavirus doesn’t care what the county says.
Research has revealed that COVID-19 is much more dangerous, and much less understood, than other viruses we commonly face. Although we do not live in fear because of our hope in Jesus and his victory over death, we also seek to love one another in this time of uncertainty.
There are a lot of things that we don’t know about this virus. What we do know is that being next to one another, for extended periods of time, in an enclosed space, with minimal air flow, does not seem like the wisest course of action at this time.
A key passage for the church right now is 1 Cor. 10:23-33. The context of this passage is not re-gathering as a church, but rather a church culture in Corinth that had become infatuated with their freedom in Christ, and was therefore abusing it. “’I have the right to do anything,’ you say – but not everything is beneficial. ‘I have the right to do anything’ – but not everything is constructive.” No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.”
For the time being, we as a church, have made the decision to relinquish our right to meet indoors, and instead to meet outdoors and wear a mask when we come together. We do this because we believe that wearing a mask reduces the risk, not so much of catching COVID from someone else, but of transmitting COVID to another person.
We understand that some are beginning to consider masks a symbol of government tyranny or simply excessive fear. But at ERBC, we see masks simply as a tool of LOVING OUR NEIGHBOR and admitting that we don’t know everything. I could be sick and not know it: you could be immunocompromised and I not know it. Wearing a mask tells you, before we even lock eyes, that I care about you and your safety. In
other words, I wear a mask not for me: but for you.
Just show up! You do NOT need to RSVP to attend as we have space available.
