Our mission: to be a sign of Christ’s love for the world.
We rejoice that we are now open to up to 250 people in the sanctuary for Sunday morning worship at 9 am! We will continue to live stream the service so that you may worship in the way you feel safest. In order to be safe and "do no harm" as the family of God, please arrive early and be prepared to abide by the following protocols:

  • Wear a mask at all times 😷
  • Maintain 6-foot social distance ⬅️ 6ft ➡️
  • Enter sanctuary from the main front entrance (unless you have need of the elevator) 🚪
  • Sign in with the usher as guided 📝
  • Usher will seat all worshippers in "reserved for you" spots and ushers may lead you out of the sanctuary from back to front at the end of worship.

We look forward to "seeing you in worship". NOTE: Beginning EASTER SUNDAY, We will change the time of worship to 10 am and stay at that time until we can move back to two services.
