Wear a mask at all times.
We do require wearing masks in the building by people aged 10 and up including during worship services except for those speaking or performing on stage. We do have plenty of free masks if you need one.
Families may sit together in the worship center while leaving at least three empty seats between families.
We Know we haven't seen each other in person for a while, but please refrain from congregating indoors. Remember to practice social distancing of at least 6 feet from all people not in your family.
Not only do we have our building professionally cleaned and sanitized each week, but we are also leaving extra room between services to clean and sanitize. All common areas will be sanitized between services and we have purchase special equipment to sanitize the auditorium and chairs in between services.
We are limiting our seating to 85 people per service. This will allow us to spread out and maintain proper social distance at all times. You must register to save a seat at our in person services. You may do so at the bottom of this page. Registrations close at 12:00am on Sundays.
No coffee or refreshments.
Until further notice we are not serving coffee or refreshments at our services. You know you're used to your fancy pour-over at home by now anyway.
When you walk into the building there will be pre-packaged communion elements for your to grab and take to your seat. We will not have our usual tables in the back.
No kid's or student services.
We invite families to attend together as we will not offer children’s classes or student services at this time. Our elders will continue to prayerfully monitor the situation in cooperation with state and local officials to determine when it is safe for our staff, volunteers, students, and children to conduct these services. We realize that not having children’s ministry can sometimes make it difficult for parents to attend worship services. We want you to know that you and your children are WANTED and WELCOME in our services. Kids wiggle, squirm, and make noise (and we’re ok with that!) they are also a sign of life and joy. We will be providing “praise bags” to help engage and occupy your child during worship. There will also be a space in the lobby (with the livestream) where you can take your child if they need to do some extra wiggling.
We will not be passing offering baskets during service. We still encourage you to use online giving
, but will have donation boxes at the back of the auditorium.
We will have contactless hand sanitizer stations when you enter the building.
