Reopening In-Person Worship
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracingEcclesiastes 3:1, 5b

Thank you for your continued patience as we learn together how best to worship at a distance. We continue to meet weekly in-person (weather permitting), as well as providing services via Zoom. We’ve put together a couple of videos showing how things look for both indoor and outdoor in-person worship, disinfecting practices, and what we’re doing to keep you safe.
For details on outdoor worship (including what to expect when you arrive, where to park, and restroom access), please CLICK HERE.
For details on indoor worship (including disinfectant practices, how to enter and exit the building, and restroom procedures), please CLICK HERE.
Attendees of worship in-person are welcome to sing and respond to the liturgy, provided face coverings are worn over both nose and mouth at all times.
For those wishing to participate in Holy Communion, we provide individual communion kits so that we can continue to celebrate the sacrament in a safe and socially-distanced manner.
We are happy to be able to host a socially-distanced time of fellowship for special occasions after the service for those present in-person. Refreshments are made available and can be enjoyed outdoors (weather permitting; indoor refreshments are not available).
And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Hebrews 10:24-25
We continue to provide online opportunities to worship for those who are unable to or choose not to join us in-person.
