Lake Merced is meeting outdoors and online!

Updated 10/9/2020 at 1:57pm PST


We are pleased to announce that as of Sunday, October 11, Lake Merced will be gathering once again for services in-person! Keep reading for the quick scoop of what to expect when you attend:

  • Service will be held outdoors only. Several of our older members indicated they would feel comfortable attending if the service was outdoors. We can do that! Be sure to dress warm.
  • Service will begin at 10:45am. Please make every effort to arrive early, so that we can screen everyone in a timely manner.
  • You will be screened. This means that you will be asked to answer questions about any recent symptoms, verified to be wearing a mask, and will have your temperature taken by volunteers before being invited to sit down.
  • There will be no audible congregational singing yet. At this time, the county of San Francisco only allows one masked singer or speaker at a time. 
  • There will be no projector or visuals available. Please come prepared with a Bible or Bible App on a device to follow along with the message.
  • All people need to remain masked and socially-distanced at all times, except with members of their own household.
  • Outdoor gatherings are limited to 200 people. We don't expect to hit capacity, and we encourage you to invite your friends!
  • We will have the Lord's Supper. Each attendee will receive a self-contained communion kit which includes a wafer and grape juice to partake of. You will peel the plastic in the lid to get the wafer, and then peel the next layer for the juice. You will be able to briefly step away from others, pull your mask down and partake before discarding in a public trash receptacle.
  • Please use Hand Sanitizer. We will have hand-sanitizing stations available to you. Please use them as often as you are able.
  • There will be no food or coffee available. You are welcome to bring your own coffee if you'd like to. Please do not share with others.
  • We have plenty of PPE available. If you are not wearing a mask, you are welcome to ours. We will also have gloves available for those who'd like them.
  • Service will still be Live Streamed. For those who cannot attend or who'd still prefer to stay home, we encourage you to do whatever is most necessary for your own health. Services will be streamed live to our YouTube channel and will be available by clicking herePlease note that live-streaming is notoriously hit-and-miss. It may work flawlessly, may work partially, or may not work at all. We apologize in advance for any difficulties. We promise to do our very best.
  • We will not be passing baskets for giving. All giving will be handled by texting a dollar amount to 84321 or by going to https://lakemerced.churchcenter.com/giving and making a donation there.


church life at Lake merced

Lake Merced Church of Christ strives to do three things excellently. Our three asks or three pillars of Church life center on Sunday Worship (Sundays @ 10:45am), Home Groups, and Discipleship (groups of 3-4 people). We believe that people grow in community. Jesus worshipped in the Synagogue, in homes, and in close relationships with twos and threes. We believe the smaller we go, the more we grow.

We Love Because Christ first loved us

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. - John 15:13
