Information & Registration for our Outdoor, On-Campus Church Services
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT ATTENDING
We will be practicing physical distancing and limiting attendance (including no childcare or kid’s programming). Wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth is required. If you don’t have a face covering, one will be provided. If there is any type of illness in your family, we ask that you remain at home to worship. The Center for Disease Control recommends that if you are a member of a high-risk group (elderly, immunocompromised, etc.) you avoid large gatherings.
Pre-Registration is at capacity, but the waitlist is open

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you choosing to resume on-campus worship gatherings now?
– As the pandemic and its effects continue to stretch into the unknown future, we are seeking to best serve our church family in ways that are in alignment with our mission, vision, and values. Our elders believe that adding an in-person worship gathering is an important and significant way in which we can serve our church family at this time.
Can I come early to enjoy the view and grab a coffee from Parable Coffee Lab?
-Yes! Our campus and Parable is typically open one hour before our on-campus services.
Will you be live-streaming this service?
– No. However, our worship services as you have experienced them on our digital campus will continue on our existing schedule and across the platforms, we use (web, YouTube, Facebook, podcast, and KCOP) even as we add gatherings on our physical campus. The entire schedule can be found at belair.org/watch
Will the service be a duplicate of what is available online?
– No. We want to take the opportunity to focus our time in ways that lend themselves more towards in-person gatherings that don’t translate as well online. You can expect musical worship that reflects the diversity of our church, a deeper dive in practical application of that Sunday’s sermon, self-service communion, and opportunities to put into practice many of the “one another’s of Scripture” that can only be done in community.
Will there be congregant participation in the service, such as singing or greeting each other, prayer teams?
-We will be planning our services to have participation in ways that are meaningful and respectful of those in attendance. We encourage singing and greeting one another while wearing masks. Our prayer teams will be available for prayer while maintaining physical distancing.
What steps will you be taking to minimize the spread of Covid-19?
– We see it as a matter of discipleship to Jesus to play our part in minimizing the spread of Covid-19. Though there are many perspectives on this novel coronavirus, including its severity and its prevention, we will be requiring face masks, practicing physical distancing, and implementing a rigorous protocol of cleaning and sanitization before and during our gatherings.
May I bring my own chair to the service?
-No. We kindly request that you use the sanitized chairs that we will be providing that will be strategically spaced based upon our capacity.
Is parking any different than normal?
-All parking lots will be open without shuttle service. Our upper parking lot and mid-campus parking lot (sanctuary/patio level) will be reserved for vehicles with handicapped placards.
I’m looking for community but aren’t ready to meet in person, what do you suggest?
– We are here to get you connected and we believe there is nothing that can cancel Christ-centered community. For more information, you can visit belair.org/community
I heard some churches are intentionally defying governmental orders related to Covid-19 as a form of protest for religious freedom. Are you doing that too?
– No. Though some churches have made that decision after much prayer and seeking the Lord, our decision has nothing to do with local or state government decisions but rather we are seeking to best serve our church family while maintaining a “love your neighbor as yourself” witness to a watching world.
Our leadership is choosing to follow the ever-evolving guidance for how to slow the spread of Covid-19 while remaining flexible on the forms of our faith while staying resolute on the focus of our faith: Jesus, our Savior, and Lord.
We love our church and we love the city of Los Angeles that God has called us to be ambassadors of Christ to. During the last 7 months, we have had tremendous freedom to follow God’s leading to serve our church family and to expand our reach in unprecedented ways in our 64-year history.
