Frequently Asked Questions

Are you meeting for on-campus services?
Yes! We are thankful to be meeting for both in-person and online services at all three SBC campuses on Sundays. While we value being together in community and are taking every precaution to help protect those who join us, we encourage families and individuals to choose the option that is best for them.

How can I join an SBC service online?
Each Shea Worship Center and Grace Chapel service is broadcast live at 9 and 11am on Sundays via our livestreamSBC AppYouTube Live, Facebook, Roku and Apple TV. The services are also online throughout the week on the Live or Messages webpages (under the Watch menu), or under Messages on the SBC App.

Are you offering Children’s programs?
Yes! Discovery Kids meets each Sunday at all campuses. Our Discovery Kids ministry also records a weekly video lesson with worship and activities, allowing kids and families to stay connected from home. A new lesson is posted on YouTube every Saturday and the Discovery Kids team is active on their Facebook page as well.

What about Youth (grades 5-12)?
All SBC YTH groups meet weekly on Sundays. Our YTH 5|6 (grade 5 & 6) program is offered at 9am (and 11am at North Ridge and Shea) each Sunday morning. On Sunday evenings, all youth (grades 5-12) gather for teaching, worship and community at 5pm on each campus (grades 7-12 at SBC Cactus). Our students also stay connected throughout the week on Instagram and YouTube.

Would you prefer we come in person or worship from home?
We are wired for community, and we want to see you! We know, however, that many are not ready to re-engage in large group gatherings yet and respect the decisions each individual and family will make based on their circumstances. Our desire is to provide the best possible opportunities for both online and in-person groups. Our Online Pastor and team are available to connect with you each Sunday and throughout the week.

What health and safety measures are in place on SBC campuses?
Face masks are optional on all campuses, and we ask everyone to be mindful of others and stay home if they are feeling sick or have been exposed to someone with Covid-19.
