Join Us for IN-PERSON Worship!
INDOOR: Saturdays @ 5:00 p.m. and Sundays @ 9:00 a.m.
Worship with us in the renovated Sanctuary. Facemasks will be required, and physical distancing will be observed. As you arrive for worship, you’ll pick up communion elements and get your temperature taken, before entering the sanctuary. Attendance will be taken as you arrive. We remind you to adhere to physical distancing procedures during our check-in process and in worship. Thank you for your patience as we re-gather (safely) for worship!
OUTDOOR: Sundays @ 9:00 a.m. – When Scheduled
We will hold Outdoor Services at the Worship Center near the back parking lot. There is some seating available, but you may want to bring your own lawn chairs. As you arrive for worship, you’ll pick up communion elements as you arrive. We remind you to adhere to physical distancing procedures during worship. Please watch for the parking cones, as there will not be access to the far north section of the parking lot.
