Attend Worship In-Person or Online!
What to expect at UUCB on Sundays
(updated September 2023)
We have enjoyed Sunday worship in person for over a year (since March 2022), and have gradually broadened our range of activities and updated our safety precautions. Our activities for children, including Religious Education and childcare, are back in full swing. Some programs, such as Personal Theology and Summer Forum, may originate virtually on Zoom, but can be enjoyed on the large screen in the Fireside Room; please see the announcements from the program coordinators for more details.
The worship service takes place indoors in our Sanctuary where, along with all other areas of the church, masking is optional. You can read the full announcement here.
Those attending in person must affirm that they are not ill and have no symptoms of contagious illness. All attending provide that affirmation tacitly, by attending.
Please attend our online service instead if you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, have symptoms of any contagious illness, or have recently been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Visit our homepage for links to our Facebook Live and YouTube channels.
We recommend arriving at least 10-15 minutes before the 11 am service start time in order to find your name badge and then sign in as you enter the Atrium. Self Check In is available for returning attendees; please give yourself ample time to check in before 11 am. Visitors sign in and receive name badges at the Welcome Table. Our Sunday Check In continues, as an effective and efficient way to inform our church operations and maintain connection with our community.
Our after-service refreshments are served indoors in the Social Hall. Our ventilation system provides an excellent air exchange rate; limited outdoor seating will be provided, weather and outdoor air quality permitting, for those who prefer to consume their refreshments outdoors.
We continue to monitor public health situations, including COVID conditions, which may affect our congregation. We recommend that vulnerable people follow CDC and California Department of Public Health advice and continue to wear masks indoors in public spaces, as they judge it necessary for their health. In addition, we affirm the right of anyone to wear a mask while engaged in any activity on the UUCB campus, regardless of safety protocols, without fear of complaint.
