STCF’s Reopening Plans- Updated March 24, 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.
PHASE 2 (Current Phase): Sunday March 28th we are excited reopen safely for in person worship for members and non-members who are comfortable to worship in the building. Please note worship services will still be visible via Facebook and Youtube for those who wish to continue worshipping virtually at this time.

Registration to attend the worship service March 28th in person will open on the following dates:
STCF MEMBERS: Thursday March 25th @ 9am (link will be emailed)
PUBLIC COMMUNITY: Saturday March 27th @ 9am (link will be posted on this website and shared to our social media)
*At this time we encourage those with young children, who are experiencing health challenges and are in at-risk populations to continue to worship with us online.*
LIVESTREAM: Sunday worship services will continue to be live-streamed at 10:00 am on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/stcfoc and also on our Youtube page at https://www.youtube.com/c/SettheCaptivesFreeOutreachCenter**
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.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
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.
- 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.

- Engage in respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into the bend of your elbow.

- Avoid coming in close contact with those who appear unwell.
