STCF’s Reopening Plans – Updated July 6, 2021

The health and safety of the members and guests of Set the Captives Free Outreach Center (O.W.E. Center) and our ability to continue to serve families through community outreach, spiritual development and educational enrichment are top priorities. We are actively monitoring updates about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and moving strategically while following approved guidelines presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.



IN-PERSON WORSHIP: Effective Sunday, July 11, 2021 we will suspend the Eventbrite registration to attend Sunday services for the months of July and August. However, attendees are still required to:

  1. Complete the Covid-19 prescreening tool on Sunday morning prior to arriving at the OWE center:
  2. Temperature check upon arrival
  3. Wear mask at all times while in the OWE Center.
  4.  6 feet distance requirement

Please be aware that the doors close at 10:15 am for entrance into Sunday Worship Service.

LIVESTREAM: Sunday worship services will continue to be live-streamed at 10:00 am on our Facebook page at and also on our Youtube page at

BIBLE STUDY: P.A.T.H. Bible Study will continue online for the duration of 2021.


PHASE 3: The final phase will consist of Sunday worship and Wednesday P.A.T.H. Bible study at full capacity. This will be established at a later date as deemed appropriate by local government and health officials.


Above all, we want to be sure that the church we are reopening is safe for our people. For this reason, we will take our time to make the determination of when we will resume public worship.


There are simple measures you can take to protect yourself and help us reduce the spread of Coronavirus in our community.

If you feel sick or are caring for someone who is sick:

  • Stay home unless you are seeking medical treatment.
  • Limit your participation in community activities.
  • Plan to call into ministry meetings instead of attending them in person.
  • Dispose of used tissues right away.

In general:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and others with unwashed hands.
  • Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water as often as you can. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • If you are not near a sink, use hand sanitizer. Sanitize all of the skin on your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Refrain from shaking your hands to dry them.
  • Engage in respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into the bend of your elbow.
  • Sanitize freshly touched surfaces in your home, school or office daily.
  • Avoid coming in close contact with those who appear unwell.

Educate yourself:

  • Learn the additional measures that high risk, vulnerable individuals should take.
  • Stay up on current events.
