Last Updated: March 1, 2022

We will continue to keep you updated on what’s happening at Wheaton Bible Church, Tri-Village Church, and Iglesia del Pueblo in light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

March 1, 2022 Update:

Effective February 28, 2022, because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that masks are needed only in areas of high transmission, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker lifted the state’s indoor masking requirements. The CDC is now monitoring COVID-19 using their Community Levels tool, which helps communities and individuals decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data.

Our Sunday services will continue to be mask-optional, and seating arrangements will continue to have both mask-optional and mask-required sections with an additional encouragement for those who feel more comfortable with masks to please wear them. Attendees will moderate their own distancing. We will continue to thoroughly clean the facility regularly and keep hand sanitizing stations easily accessible around the facility. Updates will be posted here, when necessary.

Why mask optional?

Are we gathering at our campuses for Sunday services?

Yes. We are gathering on campus. 

Do I need to register?

No. Registration is not required to attend services, nor is it required for Kids' Life and Student Life classes. Families are welcome to come on Sunday mornings without preregistering their kids.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Our Sunday services are mask-optional. If you would prefer to sit in a mask-required section, please ask an usher to direct you. Kids' Life and Student Life gatherings, as well as our Weekday Preschool, are also mask-optional.

Can I worship online?

We will continue to live stream full worship services if you're not able to or not yet comfortable joining on-campus.

What is required of me to attend?
Take Proper Precautions

If you are sick, particularly if you have experienced any flu-like symptoms in the past 14 days (cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, fever of 100.4 or higher, etc.), please do not attend a worship service. If you have had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, do not attend a worship service. Regularly wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer when available. Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth. Pay attention to signage posted around the building. 

Distance

We encourage all congregants to continue to do your best to social distance while on campus.

Love

Given that there will be a wide variety of perspectives on how to act during this pandemic, please treat one another with love. We know not everyone is at the same place regarding masks and social distancing.  We want to show love and honor to both our congregation and staff through this process. 

Safe After Sunday

If at any time you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 after attending a service, please text COVID to 630-260-1600 to notify our staff.  Similarly, if you know anyone who has been diagnosed, please follow the same guidelines.  If you make a report you will remain anonymous. 

Is the West Chicago Campus open for me to stop in?

Yes. The church is open 8am-5pm Monday through Friday. If you need help or would like to speak with a pastor, please visit wheatonbible.org/help

Where can I get updates on the church's response?

This page, wheatonbible.org/coronavirus-updates, will be updated as needed.
