As you know, health experts and government authorities continue to make new guidelines to curb the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in the United States. Therefore, we have updated our approach which is outlined below.
As of January 3rd, 2021, we are gathering in person at our building at 8675 Olive Blvd. Our capacity for service, following the county's 25% guideline, is 45 people with social distancing measures in place.
Currently, we have two services in place - 9 am and 10:45 am. Here is the link to sign up to attend a service, and you MUST sign up in order to attend: https://www.citylightsconnect.com/events
From week to week we may combine into one service if it looks like everyone signed up could be in one service together. This is a fluid situation and we continue to keep our eyes on St. Louis County regulations as we continue to adhere to the healthcare experts in the community.
Service is held with the following safety protocol:
Masks are required throughout the entire service.
No gathering in hallways or elsewhere in the building in close proximity to one another. Before and after service, visiting is encouraged outside. If you do visit with others inside, please keep a safe social distance.
Auditorium rows are spaced a little more than 6 feet apart to encourage safe social distance.
Those who live in the same household may sit together. Otherwise, please adhere to a minimum of 6 feet separation from others.
Hand sanitizer stations will be made available and usage is strongly encouraged.
Beverages are allowed in the auditorium, but please do not bring food. Be sure to be as safe as possible and only take down your mask when drinking. We will not be providing coffee and food as usual.
There is currently no kids program, children are welcome to attend service with their parents.
There is access to a nursing mother’s room. It is located in the lobby with a bright orange sign. Please adhere to mask standards while in the nursing mother's room as well.
No offering is taken during the Sunday service. There are three main methods to give which you can view here: www.citylightsconnect.com/giving

We strongly recommend anyone who feels sick to remain at home and view the live stream as well.
Small groups are still meeting and continue to be one of the main sources of fellowship in the church. Some small groups are meeting virtually while others are in person, following current safety protocol. You can find a small group here: www.citylightsconnect.com/small-groups
