Q: What have you done to make it safe to return to in-person worship?

A: Over the last several months, we have installed hands-free sinks and hand dryers in our restrooms, clean and sanitize our sanctuary between services using an electrostatic fogger, offer individual pre-packaged communion, and have socially-distanced seating.

Q: Will masks be required?

A: SSCC COVID policy as of Sunday, June 13, 2021


In light of the recent decline in COVID numbers, changes to the national, CDC, state, and local policies, the South Side elders are making the following changes to the church COVID policies.

For anyone who is fully vaccinated and two-weeks past their final injection:

  •         It is recommended, but not required that they wear a mask or social distance from others when in the church building.

For anyone who is NOT fully vaccinated, both children and adults, and has received no COVID vaccine injections or still requires their final injection:

  •         It is required that these individuals wear a mask and social distance when in the church building. Once seated in the Sanctuary, these attenders are permitted to remove their masks, but are asked to put the mask back on when moving around the building.

Anyone who is fully vaccinated and wishes to continue wearing a mask and social distancing is welcomed to do so. The church will continue to have hand sanitizer and masks available to everyone, and will continue to sanitize the areas used during the course of worship and other meetings in the building.

Q: Do I need a reservation?

A: No reservation is required. We offer socially-distanced seating for groups of up to 4 people. Additional seating is available upon request.

Q: What if I'm not comfortable coming back yet?

A: If you aren't yet comfortable joining us in-person on Sunday morning, we invite you to watch the sermon online as early as Monday morning. You may listen to the sermon on this page under the "Listen Now" tab or on Facebook at
