Give yourself a few extra minutes to find it. We have a small parking lot for a dozen cars (more if we block each other in). These spaces are first-come first-served.

UNIVERSITY BAPTIST CHURCH COVID-19 PROTOCOL
FOR USE OF BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS INDOOR GUIDELINES
The UBC Council met 10/2/22 and decided to discontinue our mask mandate in the UBC building.
This is based on feedback received from members of the congregation, infectious disease experts, and we believe it’s consistent with current cultural norms. Luckily, most of us are vaccinated, boosted and practice health measures to protect ourselves and others. We will allow people to self-regulate, meaning individuals can choose if they want to wear masks or not--this includes congregational singing. The choir will make its own decision about masking for rehearsals and performances. We’ll continue to offer online options for those unable or unwilling to be present with us in person. We’ll also continue to have masks and hand sanitizer available at UBC. We strongly encourage masks for those at higher risk. We know that while COVID is here to stay, our need to always mask seems to have ended. Of course, we are ready to switch back to requiring masks again if infection rates merit it.
