In Person Worship on June 27!
We will have our first hybrid in-person and online worship service on June 27 at 11 am. If you are participating from home, the service will be live-streamed on Facebook at 11 am and the video will be posted on YouTube by 4 pm.

If you are worshiping in person, please wear your mask at all times while in the building, and sit with your family group or bubble spread out from others.

What you will NOT experience at church for now:
  • congregational singing
  • coffee time / potlucks

What you WILL experience at church:
  • joyful worship
  • big smile under our masks
  • congregational prayer
  • beautiful music
  • thoughtful sermons
  • the communion of saints gathered far and wide!

The in-person worship service may not look quite like it used to, but that's ok! We have been adaptive and flexible all year. Let's keep up that spirit of adventure.

If you are feeling unwell, showing symptoms of COVID, or have close family or friends with COVID, please stay home and worship with us online.

I ask for your prayers and patience as we work out the technology to show hospitality to both our online and in-person congregations
