Physical Distancing Practices
We are excited to be transitioning back into a season that includes worshiping together, in person, at Beautiful Savior.
Because we are limited to 50 people or less at a time, we will have two worship services: 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. Please RSVP by Thursday of each week to let us know which service you will be attending.
- Those in the HIGH RISK category should consider remaining home at this time.
- Those who are exhibiting any SYMPTOMS (cough, flu-like symptoms, fever of 100.4 or above) or who are in the same household with someone who is exhibiting symptoms MUST remain home.
- BSLC’s worship services will continue to be live streamed and recorded for those who remain at home.
- BSLC’s Bible Class will also continue to be accessible with a Zoom Meeting for those who remain at home.
Attending Worship Under Phase 2 or 3
Excitement is growing as we look forward to our first in-person worship service. Due to the requirements set out by the State of Washington’s governor, it will look a little different.
- 8:00 Worship (In-person and live streamed)
- 9:15 Bible Fellowship (In-person and Zoomed)
- 10:30 Worship (In-person and recorded on the website)
Here is what you can expect:
- LIMITED CAPACITY. Under Phase 2 and 3 we are allowed no more than 50 people at each service.

- MASKS. Please bring and wear your own mask while you are indoors. Masks will be provided at the door for those who don’t have one.
- ENTERING THE BUILDING. The door will be open (or opened for your), so come on in.
- PHYSICAL DISTANCING. Please try to keep a 6-10 foot physical distance from others at all times.
- WORSHIP FOLDERS. These will be found on the pew where you sit, not in the hands of an usher.
- SEATING. You will be seated. Ushers will seat people by family or household groups. Seating will be every other row, from front to back.
- OFFERING. The offering plate will not be passed. Donations may be placed in the plate as we do during Advent and Lenten services.
- GREETINGS. Verbal only with physical distance.
- COMMUNION. Holy Communion will be served at both services.
- DISTRIBUTION OF COMMUNION. Ushers will direct each family to come forward to receive Holy Communion in a processional manner (not by tables).
- RECEIVING THE HOST. The pastor will be masked and gloved during communion distribution and will drop the wafer into the hands of communicants.
- RECEIVING THE WINE. The communion assistant will be masked and gloved and set an individual cup on a table for the communicant to pick up. Communicants will then return to their seats.
Here are some other things to consider:
- RESTROOMS. Only 2 at a time. Physical distancing to be maintained if there is a waiting line.
- SANITATION. A sanitation crew will sanitize the sanctuary, fellowship hall, and restrooms regularly.
- SUNDAY SCHOOL. We encourage you to meet at home as a family.
- BIBLE CLASS. We will have Bible class with no more than 5 to a table in the Fellowship Hall. For those who choose to remain at home, we will also link up with them at 9:30 a.m. through Zoom.
- SNACKS AND DRINKS. Food will not be served during Phase 2 or 3.
