As we have announced the past few Sundays, we will be returning to in-person Sunday morning services (11am) at AMP Studios on July 18th! Since we will be indoors, we will limit capacity to allow for adequate social distancing between households. Also, we will continue to ask everyone in attendance to continue wearing their face mask for the entire duration of the service to protect the kids that are not vaccinated. For now, Child care & Sunday school will not be provided. We will continue to live-stream our services on our homepage or via Antioch's YouTube page.
As before, please pre-register at this link if you are planning to attend. Note that since we only have a few slots available, if for any reason you are not able to come please make sure to cancel your spot to allow for others that might want to attend.
Like we did before, we will practice safety measures during the entire gathering to ensure everyone's well-being. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. We are looking forward to being with you!
It was great celebrating Easter with some of you in-person after over a year of not being able to do so. Thank you also very much for those of you who still joined us online that day!
As we announced today we have scheduled two more in-person outdoor services on May 23rd and June 13th! It will be held outdoors again at 4328 N Figueroa St. Los Angeles, CA 90065. Service will be from 3-5pm and we request for everyone to pre-register at the following link, https://rsvp.church/r/oQ6yaihk . Like we did before, we will practice safety measures during the entire service to ensure everyone's well-being. These services will also be available on our Zoom link.
For all the other Sundays in May & June, we will continue to meet via Zoom for our 11am regular services.
Here is our Sunday Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6703263367
Lastly, we are currently working on a plan that would allow us to meet again at AMP studios for our Sunday services in the near future. This is contingent upon Covid cases continuing to go on a downward trend. We will continue to update you soon!
As we continue to navigate the COVID19 pandemic together as a church family, we wanted to update you with the latest response from Antioch City Church.
Our goal during this time is to continue to seek the Lord in our decisions and act in a way that is considerate of the most vulnerable members of Antioch. With this in mind, our Sunday gatherings will still continue to gather virtually via Zoom, with no in-person meeting on Sundays until further notice. Here is our Sunday Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6703263367
While this decision is a difficult one, and will remain fluid, it has been made with much deliberation and prayer by our Directional team. We will continue to meet and ask God for wisdom and guidance as we seek to honor Jesus in our transition back to physical worship together on Sundays. And of course, it was extra hard because we really miss you all!
One major change at Antioch is our midweek options for Households. Our Directional team has prayerfully decided to offer an in-person gather option for those who are comfortable to meet physically for Households. Our Household leaders are working hard to ensure that these meetings are done responsibly with limited group sizes, and are by no means mandatory.
In addition to limited, in-person households, we are also continuing to host online household options for those who would like to join or gather virtually rather than in-person at this time. We hope that allowing for some in-person meetings in Households will allow for those to be refreshed by one another's presence and enable you to worship together.
However, we affirm that the Bible calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves and therefore we are prioritizing the health and safety of the most vulnerable among us by not gathering in-person on Sundays and limiting any in-person gatherings to limited Households groups only. If you are joining these households in person, we ask that you continue to join us virtually on Sundays in order to love and fellowship with those who are most vulnerable among us, and unable to meet in-person.
We know that the last few months have been tremendously difficult for all of us in one way or another. We miss you all dearly and are praying for you through this time. Please also keep us in your prayers and continue to show us grace as we navigate these unchartered territories. We want to also remind you to reach out to one another and to continue to pray for each other during this time. It is important that we continue to support each other, even if it's not in person.
We are praying that you will be encouraged with the gospel of Jesus Christ as we continue to navigate this situation. May you find light in the darkness, rest in the unrest, and endurance as we persevere. May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
As of May 25th, the City of L.A. has permitted churches to gather in person. But with a list of requirements: you can read all the guidelines here. Since the announcement, our Directional Team has prayerfully decided to continue our virtual gatherings on Sundays. The decision was difficult and one that will remain fluid. We will continue to meet and ask God for wisdom and guidance as we seek to honor Jesus in our transition back to physical worship together. And of course, it was extra hard because we really miss you all!
However, we affirm that the Bible calls us to love our neighbor as ourselves and therefore we are prioritizing the health and safety of the most vulnerable among us by not gathering in-person for now. We are also in the process of creating a transitional plan for future gatherings. We ask that you keep us in prayer and continue to show us grace as we navigate these unchartered territories.
I know that many of you have been carrying a heavy load all week. I am praying that you will be encouraged with the gospel of Jesus Christ as we gather tomorrow. May the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

The past week our three Household Groups have already utilized Zoom and it also provides the most engagement for our church even from their homes. It's also less distracting that other platforms and it's as close as we are going to get to being together for now.
It would be ideal to download & log into Zoom prior to service to avoid any delays. We will have tech support available an hour prior to our service start time of 11am. Please feel free to reach out to Ron or Missy for any questions as well. They will be on the call prior to our start time. You could also log in early to talk to others who are joining.
Please check back every Friday evening on this page for further updates.
All midweek Household gatherings will be cancelled this week, March 17-20.
In replacement of this we will instead be having Household check-ins via Zoom call Wednesday, Thursday & Friday from 7-8pm. Please check with your respective Household leaders for the link and more information.
We still want to care for one another despite not being able to physically gather as a group and we hope by having these calls we can encourage & support each other in this challenging time.
In compliance with health experts & the authorities God has placed among us, we will not be having our usual Sunday gatherings at AMP Studios for the remainder of March.
However, this is a time to worship and pray together as a church. That said starting next Sunday, March 22nd, we will gather in smaller groups in homes across LA.
We understand this pandemic is a financial strain on many of our members. If you need prayer, help or would like to get connected to a small group leader to worship for the following Sundays, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We know this is temporary. Please check back here for weekly updates.
