Coronavirus update

This page has the latest information about what's happening and what's not at church during COVID.

UPDATED: May 30, 2021

The COVID situation in San Mateo County continues to be very encouraging. We are currently in the California "yellow" tier which is the least restrictive re-opening tier. Everyone expects that on Tuesday (June 15), California will announce a full reopening!

New Life IS allowed to have in-person gatherings at 50% capacity with COVID safe protocols.

In-person Events:

Spanish Language Adult Bible Study @ 9a Sundays (Room 102)

English Language Adult Bible Study @ 9a Sundays (Chapel)

English Language Worship @ 10:30a Sundays

*A nursery started again Sunday June 6 (infant - 4 years)

*Sunday school for K-5th Grade starts June 13.

Spanish Language Worship @ 12:30p Sundays

*Covid safe protocols include masks and limited seating capacity.

As things change, we have set in motion the re-starting of some additional parts of our regular ministry. Here's a tentative timeline.

Sunday, June 13- we plan to bring back Sunday school for pre-k and early elementary kids.

Sunday, June 20 - we plan to bring back live music in the sanctuary.

As we move through the summer - we anticipate bringing back additional children's Sunday school classes, slowing adding more singing to the worship service and possibly re-introducing snacks after church.

We are committed to remaining vigilant as long as COVID is in our area even if the numbers are low. We plan to continue to limit our sanctuary seating capacity and continue to ask everyone to wear masks inside the sanctuary for the time-being. 

These protocols are subject to change as health and safety guidelines change.

We also anticipate being able to bring back in person mid-week Bible studies starting in June.
