LHCC remains dedicated to providing services to our community. You can view all of our sermons and bible studies on our YouTube page. We have also ramped up our food bank that gives out over 70 boxes every week to families in need. We will provide updates here and on our facebook as plans change.

Do to recent events that are unfolding around our country, Riverside County has issued a state of emergency and set a curfew of 6pm. The order from the county says that this curfew is just for tonight, however it can be extended. It is because of this, Pastor Jim and myself want to be proactive in the matter and cancel our in-person bible study this Wednesday. We will still be going live on our Facebook page at 7pm and work to make it live on our YouTube channel as well. Thank you for your time and consideration as we navigate these times.

The Board of directors has conducted our first virtual board meeting and made some important decisions that take effect immediately. We have voted to open the church to in-person services starting May 31st, 2020, This service and future ones come with requirements in order to insure public safety. The board has decided on the following guidelines for all volunteers, members and guests to follow while visiting LHCC. All congregants must wear a face mask while inside the building, must fill out a short health assessment, must not have a temperature of 100 degrees or greater, must maintain social distancing when at all possible, no sharing of microphones or other audio equipment and higher frequency of sensitization on all frequently touched surfaces. The board has also decided to suspend all Sunday school classes and only leave the nursery open to feeding mothers (service will be broadcast throughout the building via tv's). We also ask that if you or someone in your household is at high risk to please watch from home via our Facebook live stream. In final, the board has decided that a member or visitor who refuses to observe these guideline's will politely be asked to watch the service from home.
These are interesting times to say the least and we know that everyone has their own ideas and views about the virus and restrictions that are still in place by local and state government. However, as a church, we have a duty to protect all of our members and visitors and ask for your help in doing so. These guidelines do not have a set end date at this time but we do expect to loosen them as the state of California progresses through it's stages of re-opening.
Thank you and God bless.

We have now hosted 2 parking lot services in conjunction with our continued live streams. We will be hosting one more parking lot service on May 24th at 10am. It's been really fun and we invite you and your family to join us this upcoming week. We are currently planning on starting a modified service indoors on the 31st. As church attendees and volunteers enter you will be asked to do a temperature check by one of our nurse's that will be at the doors. You will also be required to wear a face mask during the entire service, if you are unable to bring a mask one can be provided to you. Our seats will be sat out 6 feet apart from each other and able to be moved around to accommodate families. We will also be imposing a 2 person per restroom rule to ensure safety throughout the building.
For the safety of everyone - if your do not wish to follow these guidelines, you will politely be asked to leave.
Again, these rules and guidelines are made with the safety of everyone who wishes to attend the service in mind.

It's been over three weeks since we opened our doors for in person services and we have not received any health notifications regarding an attendee. This is great! It means that our safety and health procedures have been working to keep all of our congregants, guests and staff safe. Please help us keep this up. If you're sick or have been in contact with someone who is, please stay home and watch the service live from your smart device. We also ask that you continue to wear your mask and keep a distance of 6 feet between each other when inside the church. These simple yet vital procedures are helping us to keep the doors open to the church. We also want to remind everyone to please wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds as often as you can, if this isn't possible, we have sanitizer stations throughout the building. So what are we doing as staff to help prevent the spread at LHCC? Well, we are ensuring that all surfaces are cleaned every 15 minutes or sooner; before, durring and after every service. We are checking temperatures of all staff before they enter the building and we are cleaning all stage and production equipment meticulously. In essence, we are ensuring the highest level of safety for everyone who wishes to attend LHCC in person. We hope to see all of our family soon, God bless you.
