Redemption's Response to COVID

Like everyone else, over the course of the last two years, we’ve been constantly adapting to the ever-changing threats and responses to the pandemic. Throughout this time, our leadership has held the conviction that we will do all we can to accommodate individuals and governmental mandates without conceding our call to gather and worship God or coercing all to follow the convictions of some. Romans 14 gives a balanced response when personal convictions are in conflict (see bottom of this page).

Based on these considerations, our current response looks like this:

In-Person Services

Redemption will continue to offer in-person worship services for those wishing to participate.


We will do our best to accommodate you if you’d like to distance or wear a mask, but we will not insist that others adopt these practices. We encourage everyone to extend grace to each other to follow individual convictions. If you’d like distanced seating or a mask, please inform a Greeter or Usher of your needs.

Distanced Seating

Distanced seating is available at the back rows of the sanctuary, on the patio, and in the Family room.


Masks are required in the Family room and accommodated at all other locations, but not required.

Redemption Online

Those for whom Covid poses a serious health risk are encouraged to watch our stream from home or the CCTV feed in the Family room.
We encourage each person to follow his/her own convictions without judging each other. If you’d like to worship with us wearing a mask, please do. If you don’t want to wear a mask, that’s fine. Let’s just be sure to love one another! If you have questions about our accommodations, contact us using the form below, or call (805) 646-1296 Mon-Thu. Praying God’s strength, protection, and peace over each of us.

Let's work together.

We'd love to hear from you. Fill out the form below to get started.

Romans 14: 1-19

Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. For instance, one person believes it’s all right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them. Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval.
In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God. For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Christ died and rose again for this very purpose—to be Lord both of the living and of the dead.
So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. For the Scriptures say,
“’As surely as I live,’ says the LORD,
‘every knee will bend to me,
and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.’”
Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.
I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong. And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died. Then you will not be criticized for doing something you believe is good. For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.
