Covid Guidelines

Updated August 3, 2021

SUNDAY gatherings

Louisiana is currently under a state-wide mask mandate. Effective August 4, 2021:

  • Masks are to be worn in common areas (hallways, foyers, restrooms, etc.).
  • If needed, masks can be removed during worship services and in adult small groups with appropriate social distancing.
  • The masking guidelines apply to everyone ages five and over, regardless of vaccination status. 
  • Small group leaders in preschool, kids, and student ministries will wear a mask while serving.
  • Students (6th-12th) attending table groups will wear masks while meeting indoors.
  • Kids (K-5th) will wear a mask during small group unless they can appropriately distance. 
  • While the mask mandate is in effect, Café Istrouma will be closed. 

If you are unable to return at this time, you can join us online, as always, on Facebook and YouTube.  



Attend a small group and worship service in person each Sunday or watch the livestream on Facebook or YouTube.




Please do NOT attend if you have any flu-like symptoms (cough, fever, chills, etc.) OR if you have been exposed to someone who has these symptoms.
