MASKS: Must be worn to attend in-person worship.
Concerning Masks During Worship:
If you have been watching the news or reading the newspaper or following social media, you know that there is a spike in new COVID-19 cases in our area. Several just at our church alone.

However, as has been the case for us all along the leadership team of the church is asking people who attend worship to wear masks for the sake of both yourself and those worshipping with you. We do understand there are those who cannot wear masks for various reasons. We are asking those people to please sit up front or stay home. If you have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive, please quarantine/get tested and do not come to church until you are in the clear. Temperatures will be taken at the door and we will ask you to sanitize your hands.

Also, services have been limited to 60 minutes, as well as any activities, like Bible Studies. The church leadership team has discussed purchasing special HEPA filters for our air system. These special filters kill the virus.

If we follow these guidelines, everyone is giving a little with the thought of trying to help our neighbors hear about Jesus. We just want everyone to hear the Word, the most important concern of all. We pray that the same love that led our Lord to the cross where he gave up all for us leads each to sacrifice for our neighbor to help them receive the gift of Jesus.

  • Do I believe I am receiving the true body and blood of Jesus under the bread and wine for the forgiveness of my sins?
