Rutherford Bible Chapel Reopening details beginning March 7th, 2021.

  • There will be one in-person service on Sundays at 10:00 AM. The service will continue to stream live on YouTube, as usual.
  • Overflow seating: NJ guidelines allow us to increase the number of people we can have in the building. Our main auditorium cannot fit, while remaining socially distant. Therefore, we will have overflow seating downstairs. There will be a screen and sound system setup for viewing.
    • Signups: Please sign up for a service in advance so we know how many people to expect. Signups will open 1 week prior to the service.
    • Arrive Early: It is highly encouraged to sign up early and arrive early on Sunday if you’d like to sit in the main auditorium for service.
    • Everyone is expected to wear a mask (except when up at the stage) and keep social distancing in mind
  • Communion: You can pick up a pre-filled juice and wafer cup at the start of service (we’ll have a table when you walk in). When it’s time for breaking of bread, simply peel back a layer for the wafer and then another layer for the juice.


Safety precautions we are taking:

  • Our cleaning crew is on a regular schedule, already cleaning and sanitizing the building weekly.
  • We will be sanitizing the chairs and rooms before and after the service.
  • Chairs will be grouped and spaced apart.
  • Several windows will be open during the service to help with air flow. Please dress for the weather.
  • Hands-free sanitizer dispensers are set up around the building


Other things to keep in mind:

  • There will be no coffee break or refreshments when we first return for in-person services.
  • Please plan to exit the building soon after the service concludes. You are welcome to continue conversations outside, as weather permits.
  • If you are feeling under the weather or have a fever, please stay home and join us online for services.
