You Are Invited Back to In-Person Worship on July 5th !
We can't wait to be together again in the church! There are a few items we will need to all do in order to keep us safe and if you are uncomfortable at all you are of course welcome to continue watching online.
  • Wear a mask. If you do not own a mask they will be available for you.
  • Sit with your families and 6 feet away from those not in your family. The pews are marked for your convenience.
  • Upon entering or leaving please do not congregate. Ushers will be present to help ensure your safety.
  • There will be no bulletin, no hymnals or other items in the pews, no breakfast or coffee, and offering baskets will be at the entrances and exits rather than passed during the service.
  • Please ASK before shaking another person's hand or giving them a hug (not recommended, but no policing will happen.)
  • Hand sanitizer is available.
  • Very Important: If you are feeling sick, have a fever, unable to smell or taste, or have any symptoms related to Covid 19 or any other sickness please remain at home and watch online.
