Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
Make plans to join us this Sunday morning at 9 am for our live-streamed service in the Sanctuary. Seating will be allowed on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be done by the ushers to maintain social distancing. Masks must be worn the entire time and all safety precautions will be taken. UNLESS YOU NEED THE ELEVATOR we request that everyone use the main entrance to the sanctuary on East Blvd.

SPECIAL NOTE: If you were at a large Thanksgiving gathering or where protocols were not observed, we ask that you quarantine from in-person worship for the safety of those present. We hope to see you back soon.
