Virtual Sunday School
Sign-up for 10:00 a.m. In-Person Worship
We continue 10:00 a.m. in-person worship this Sunday. We look forward to seeing many of you. We encourage those who are not comfortable worshipping in-person at this time to watch the livestream of the Worship Service on our website, our YouTube Channel, and Facebook page. Registration and all protocols laid out in previous emails will still be required for 10:00 a.m in-person worship. Seating will be first-come-first-served and restricted to spots marked by yellow dots. Please disregard the reference to price as this is a quirk of the sign-up system. Worship, like God's love, is of course always free! With God's grace, we are finding our way through difficult times so we can celebrate the Lord together.
