Sunday Worship Services
Reston Bible Church
We will worship together on Sunday morning with two services at our regular times of 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m.
We now have a dual service format. The 9:00 a.m. service will have full COVID precautions as they are currently (registration, masks and social distancing required), and the 10:45 a.m. service will move to a “restaurant style” in regard to masks, which should be worn when entering, exiting or moving around inside the building, but may be removed while seated and standing during the worship service.

The 9:00 service will be limited to 230 attendees, and the 10:45 service will be limited to 420 attendees.
Iglesia Hispana will meet in the sanctuary at 6:00 p.m. Si va a asistir a domingo servicio en persona, por favor haga clic aquí para información y pautas.
To accommodate those who are high-risk for infection as well as those who do not yet feel comfortable attending in-person, we will livestream our services through live.restonbible.org, Facebook, and YouTube.
Limited Children’s Ministry (Quest) classes are open at both services for preschool (3 years old and up) and Kindergarten through 5th grade. Limited Nursery (0-2 year olds) classes are open.Register to attend a service on April 18
FACE MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING
During the 9:00 service, face masks and social distancing will be required at all times while inside the building. In the sanctuary, every other row will be roped off to accommodate social distancing. Children five and older should wear a face mask when inside the building.
During the 10:45 service face masks will be required while entering, exiting, and moving around the building, but may be removed while seated during the worship service. The sanctuary layout will be alternating sets of two rows – two rows with seating available and the next two rows roped off.
Hand sanitizer will be widely available as well as face masks for those who do not have them.
The following groups are not expected to wear face masks:
1) People with health conditions or disabilities that prohibit wearing a face mask.
2) Any person seeking to communicate with the hearing impaired for which the mouth needs to be visible.
In order to accommodate proper space/seating for the recommended 6-foot distancing, an online RSVP is required to attend Sunday services for now. This will also allow us to contact attendees should a coronavirus outbreak occur within our body.Register to attend a service on April 18
The form above will allow you to reserve a number of seats for you and your family. When a service is full, registration options for that service will no longer appear.
If you have recently been sick, had recent contact with someone who tested positive with COVID-19 or if you develop any symptoms of illness (i.e. fever, cough, runny nose, loss of smell, etc.), please worship from home via the livestream or sermon archives. Exercise discernment in attending any public gathering if you or your family may be particularly susceptible to COVID-19 for any reason, including these “high risk” factors per the CDC.
If you registered to attend but need to cancel, please contact Dale Peak so we can reopen the registration form in order that others may attend.
HOW LONG WILL THESE PRECAUTIONS BE IN PLACE?
While we are excited to begin to worship together once again, even in a limited capacity, we don’t know how long these precautions will remain in place. The elders recognize that these precautions may be inconvenient to some. However, after much prayer and deliberation, we believe the benefits of beginning to gather again as a church body outweigh the inconveniences of masks and social distancing.
We will continue to pray, seek counsel, and monitor the progress of the virus in our area with the goal of gradually relaxing these precautions.
If you have any questions about attending, please email us.
