Greetings Brothers and Sisters!
We want to inform you that Blessed Hope Chapel will be returning to INDOOR services beginning Sunday, January 17, 2021, at our normal service time of 9:00AM PST. For those who do not feel comfortable attending in person or are sick, Livestream will be available for our 9:00AM PST service.
NOTE: Wednesday service will remain LIVESTREAM ONLY airing at 7:30PM PST until further notice.
In light of the continued COVID-19 Pandemic, we remain under strict guidelines as outlined below. (Please keep in mind that BHC is not voluntarily imposing any of these restriction/limitations, rather, we are complying with county/state mandates in order to keep our doors open.)
HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
At the Front Door: Please expect to form a line leading into the single door (designated as an “Entrance” only). We kindly ask that you adhere to 6 foot distancing while in line. Once you reach the front door, you will be greeted by a deacon/usher who will then guide you through the seating process.
*Note: If any of you have physical limitations which make it difficult to stand for long periods of time, please move to the front of the line and let one of the staff members know so that you can be seated promptly.
Seating: We have rearranged the chairs in rows that provide for 6 foot distancing, and we will ensure there is a 6 foot space in between individuals/members of different households. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate those who desire to sit in their favorite seats/sections. We greatly appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation.
Face Masks: Face masks are required while inside the church building, per Ventura County (medical exemptions apply).
Children: Unfortunately, per the state guidelines, we are unable to provide children’s church or nursery services at this time. Additionally, children must remain in their parents’ care at all times and not be allowed to roam unattended. We sincerely apologize for this huge inconvenience!
Social Distancing: While inside the church building, we ask that everyone maintain 6 foot distancing from individuals who are from different households.
Communion: Communion will consist of individual self-contained communion packets.
Conclusion of Service: When service has ended we ask that you please exit the building. You are more than welcome to fellowship outside. Please be mindful of cars driving through the parking lot.

• Those who fall into “High Risk” categories (or care for someone in this category) are encouraged to stay well at home and join us via Livestream.
• Those experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (for example: fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc.), those who have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, and/or those who have returned from international travel or a cruise within the last 14 days will, unfortunately, not be able to join us in person…please stay home and join us via Livestream.
Please plan to arrive early as we will inevitably encounter delays in the seating process. We look forward to seeing those of you who will be joining us each Sunday, and we humbly ask that you please bear with us as we attempt to navigate through these difficult times. We will do our very best to make your experience as pleasant and seamless as possible.
