Our First Steps Into A New Future
In March 2020, responding to the growing pandemic, Redlands First UMC took the necessary step to suspend all in person activities, including worship. We took this uncertain step as our part to keep our community safe as the coronavirus spread.
Now it is time to return to in person worship. As we return to in person worship there are two important components: First, we will continue our online worship ministry. Second, we will continue to follow CDC and Public Health guidelines as we return.
We look forward to rekindling the bonds of community through in person worship and other events. We are also committed to building on what we have learned using digital platforms to extend the bonds of community, ministry and support beyond those who are able to attend in person.
In Person Worship Expectation
For the next few weeks, we will observe the COVID protocols that remain in place.
- We are limiting our capacity to 100 persons so that we can maintain 6 feet of distance between family groups
- Masks are required for all persons regardless of vaccine status
- We will maintain 6’ distancing between family groups and encourage no contact
- We are now able to enjoy group recitation or singing with our masks on
We anticipate that these restrictions will only be in effect for the short term. As soon as the State of California lifts these restrictions, the church will also lift them.
Live Streaming Worship
During COVID we have come to realize that our online worship experience had value to many. Caregivers, travelers, homebound persons and many persons from outside the immediate area of the church have expressed gratitude for this form of worship. In order to continue meeting the needs of this part of our community, online worship, through our YouTube Channel, is now a permanent part of our ministry.

This stream works well on any device you have available from computer browsers to mobile devices to smart TVs. As you bring up the channel, there will be a link for the live feed. In addition, you will be able to access previous worship services.
