Fragrance Free Zone

From 2004 – 2007, Calvary Chapel Eastside had a room next to the sanctuary called a “Fragrance Free Zone.” This was a room with a T.V. monitor where chemically sensitive people could worship and view the service on the monitor without being exposed to the fragrances in the main sanctuary.

Mike and Mary Lou Bryan were missionaires from Russia that were home on furlough and visited Calvary Chapel Eastside. It was so kind of them to spend time sharing about their ministry with people from the Fragrance Free Zone in the courtyard after church one Sunday.

Fragrance Free Events

The Ridings family hosted Focus on the Family’s “The Truth Project” DVD series in their home for 3 months. It was held in a fragrance free environment so people with chemical sensitivities could attend.

The Ridings family hosted another Fragrance Free Event in their home where Janine Ridings did a teaching on “Healing.” Pastor Merlyn Linden from Calvary Chapel Eastside joined their fellowship time.

Pastor Wayne Taylor from Calvary Fellowship in Seattle hosts an annual N.W. Pastors’ Conference. In September 2005, Aroma of Christ Ministry hosted a display table at the conference sharing about the needs of the chemically sensitive and how churches can accommodate people with this condition. There were about 600 pastors, leaders and missionaries in attendance from places such as Montana, Missouri, Texas, Oregon, California, Washington, Alaska, Minnesota, London, and Germany, so it was a great opportunity to educate church leaders about this. According to Janine Ridings, founder of Aroma of Christ, “The response from the pastors and leaders I spoke with was very encouraging; there was a sense of compassion and willingness to help.”
