YAY, we can meet in our building again!
On Monday, May 17, Governor Baker announced sweeping State Reopening Plans, which dropped most statewide pandemic-related restrictions effective May 29. Additionally, the CDC lifted their mask guidelines. This new end date to restrictions places Massachusetts in line with all surrounding New England states.
So, what does this mean for the people of Antioch Waltham?
Based on this new information, the Elders and Pastoral Staff have established a new set of guidelines for the use of our facility for Sunday morning worship services. These guidelines will be effective Sunday, June 6, when we reenter our facility for our worship service.
The FAQs below provide more detail on how these guidelines impact our in-person ministry activities.
Reentry Safety Measures
Even as progress in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we're still doing our best to offer a safe and welcoming worship experience at our facility. We hired a professional company to perform thorough cleanings between services, we've upgraded to HEPA air filtration systems that can filter out particles small enough to include the COVID-19 virus, 4 windows in the sanctuary will be replaced with ones that open by the end of July, and our restroom faucets and paper towel dispensers are hands-free. As a result of what we have been doing, we are confident that we can return to worshipping and fellowshipping within our church building in a way that is safe and welcoming to all who attend.
We're all in this together! So please take note of the following guidelines before you attend one of our services:
• If you or anyone in your party has any symptoms associated with COVID-19, please join us online instead.
• If you or anyone in your party has had prolonged exposure to anyone who's tested positive for COVID-19, please join us online instead.
Sundays in the Spring at Antioch
Sundays @ 10 AM // In-Person & Online
***WE WILL ONLY BE ONLINE FOR MAY 16 AS LCA IS NOT AVAILABLE TO US ON THAT SUNDAY.***
We are so excited to gather together to worship outdoors Sundays (weather permitting) at 10 AM at Lexington Christian Academy. The address of the school is 48 Bartlett Ave, Lexington MA. There will be parking available when you turn onto campus.
From there, we will have ushers who will direct you to where we are gathering, which will be on a section of LCA’s athletic fields. Please complete the electronic pre-registration form here before each Sunday morning.
We will also have either a pre-recorded worship service OR a livestream of our outdoor corporate gatherings. Our worship time together will go for approximately 1 hour. We will either be using ZOOM or our YouTube page for our online option. Those links are:
