A message on weekend services
We are still going to have church this weekend, but we will just gather online instead of in person. Based on the advice of medical professionals in our area, we have made the difficult decision to close all of our Seacoast locations beginning this weekend, March 14-15.
While we have not been directed to do so by state or local officials, we believe that this is the best way for us to be responsible and proactive. In the Bible, the first question a person ever asks God is, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” We answer that question with an unequivocal, emphatic “Yes.”
This is not about panic, and we do not believe we are overreacting. This is about doing everything within our power to halt the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our areas. We know that you are committed to helping to do that as well.
Attending Services Online
We still want everyone to join us for weekend worship at live.seacoast.org, and we want everyone to download the Seacoast app. The app is the best way to engage with us online. We made a short video to tell you how to get the app, and share a few features.
Visit seacoast.org/app to learn more and get the Seacoast app.
We know that some people have started hosting Watch Parties during weekend worship. We love that idea and we want to encourage everyone to consider hosting a Watch Party for weekend services right where you are. It can be your small group, a few neighbors, or just your family. Naturally, we want everyone to exercise extreme caution when choosing to gather with others, and encourage you to limit the size of your group.
In a few days, we will post materials for Watch Parties. It will include everything you need to host a worship experience right where you are, including materials and instructions for hosts. We will also post some instructions for how you can host a Watch Party from your Facebook page.
We know that better days are ahead and even in the midst of this difficult time, Seacoast is committed to helping people wherever we can. Right now, the best way we can do that is to join with people across the world and fight to “flatten the curve.” We love our Seacoast family, and we’ll see you for worship online.
At this point, all weekend services at all of our Seacoast campuses will continue as usual. For the most up-to-date information on our plans and how we are responding, please check this page, which we will update as more information is available.

How You Can Help
We appreciate your cooperation and commitment to help us keep one another safe and healthy.
Avoid gathering with groups larger than 10 people. If you are not feeling well, stay home.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. While we will be offering many hand sanitizing stations, proper hand washing is more effective.
Limit The Spread Of Germs
Cover your sneeze or cough with your arm, or with a tissue that you then immediately dispose of.
Avoid Face Contact
Make an effort to touch your face less.
Practice Social Distancing
Per CDC guidance, do your best to stay 6 feet away from others when possible.
Let Us Know
If you or someone you know tests positive for COVID-19, please let us know so we can find a way to help, pray for everyone involved, and take any necessary precautions here at Seacoast.
