COVID-19 Response & Reentry

Soma Eastside Church is committed to caring for the health and safety of our church members as well as our community.   

In line with Phase 2 re-opening guidance, we are currently offering one in-person service, indoors, at Bellevue Way Community Church. The service lasts about an hour, with required cleaning before and after. Indoor services can accommodate 63 people in the main sanctuary and up to 40 people in the Fellowship Hall.  

Kids Crews are currently not operating, but we've set up a Family Room in the Fellowship Hall with room to spread out, including crafts, and activity grab bags for kids. 

The service will be live streamed on both our YouTube channel and Facebook page, and streamed directly to the Family Room.

Use the link on the Sunday Service page to register your household to help us keep an accurate headcount.  Those who attend will need to follow state and local Phase 2 guidelines, which are listed below.  

You can find answers to FAQs about in-person services here.
