Welcome to weekend gatherings at Lighthouse! Our world has changed a lot in the last year. Our church gatherings are a bit different too. The biggest difference you will notice is the need for you and your household to register for gatherings due to social distancing requirements.

If you are unable or not ready for in-person gatherings at Lighthouse, join us online via our YouTube channel starting at 6:00pm each Saturday.

Guidelines for Weekend Services at Lighthouse

Before Service

• To keep everybody safe, seating is limited. To save seats for your household, please register online or by calling the church office. Registration for the following weekend's services will be open between Tuesday 12:00pm-Thursday 5:00pm.

• If you have younger children, pack a bag with quiet activities. Our KM2 team will have some things to keep your kiddos engaged during the service as well.
**Currently, 1st-4th grade students are invited to join us for in-person kids' gatherings on Sundays at 9:00am and 11:00am. We have very limited space. Preregistration is required.

• Before you come to church, take the temperatures of everyone in your group. Bring your mask – you’re gonna need it! Masks are required to be worn by those five years and up when entering Lighthouse buildings. We strongly encourage children three years and up to wear a mask.

• Park in the upper parking lot and head to the main entrance of Building 1 (our original building).

• Join us for congregational singing outside 25 minutes before the start of each weekend service.

If you have preregistered, you will be asked three questions and then cleared to enter the building. You will be asked three questions:
- Did you register online or through the office for this service?
- Have you monitored your health and taken your temperature before coming?
- Has anyone in your household exhibited COVID symptoms?
An usher will guide you into the Sanctuary and lead you to your seats. Seating is based on the size of your household.

If you did not preregister, we will have people who can help you go through the process. If seats are still available in the sanctuary, an usher will lead you in and guide you to your seats.

During Service

• Please keep your mask on while in our buildings and practice social distancing. Tables will be set up with cleaning wipes and hand sanitizer.

• Our restrooms will be open but limited to 2 people at a time.

• Our coffee shop remains closed during service times. Feel free to bring your coffee from home. You will need to keep your mask on when not sipping your coffee.

• We have temporarily suspended congregational singing during our services. Meet us outside for a time of singing 25 minutes before each weekend service. Click here to see Pastor Brandon's video regarding this temporary restriction. Click here for the ASL-interpreted message from Pastor Brandon.

• If you are attending services in the Sanctuary, please do not go downstairs. Use the upstairs restrooms. Enter and exit the building from the main doors.

• If you are attending service in the Fellowship Center, please do not go upstairs. Use the downstairs restrooms. Enter and exit the building from the downstairs doors next to the Fellowship Center.

• An online bulletin will be provided through our website and our app. Click here for links to this week's PDF and online fill-in sermon notes and bulletin. These links are updated on the Friday of that weekend's services.

After Service

We know that you want to greet and catch up with friends. Please do so outside of the building while social distancing.

FAQ

Following the guidelines set out by Governor Inslee, the LCC Leadership is recommending that we sing as a congregation outside 25 minutes before each weekend service.
