We would love to have you join us. We are currently gathering outdoors when the weather allows. When we need to gather indoors, we are asking everyone to mask and to take steps to keep each other safe and healthy.
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
2 Timothy 1.7
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.”
While you do not need to register using the form above to join us when we meet indoors, it will help us be prepared for how many will be gathering with us.
As we navigate this pandemic together we need wisdom, and thankfully fearlessness and wisdom are not mutually exclusive. When wisdom is applied to fearlessness it results in courage, which is what the present moment calls for. Taking the proper precautions, aided by the best available scientific knowledge, means we can reduce the risk of our congregational worship resulting in the spread of the coronavirus in our community. We will continue to listen to experts in their fields as new and evolving information becomes available and adjust our practices accordingly. This is what practicing courage looks like in the present moment, and the “power and love and self-control” courage carries within it will allow us to witness to the living God and love our neighbors as ourselves. This is our calling and it has not changed.
What will worship look like now?
Please stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, especially a fever and/or a cough. We will have hand sanitizer readily available, and encourage everyone to wash their hands well and often. We ask everyone to continue refraining from greeting others with physical touch. We will ensure that high-touch surfaces are sanitized, and we will ask people to sanitize the toilet handle, the sink, and the door handles themselves after each restroom use.
We will adjust the seating in our sanctuary to provide more distance between households. Kids 4 and older will join us upstairs for the beginning of the service and then go downstairs for appropriately distanced kids’ church. Simply keep an appropriate distance between you and others when you’re walking in the aisles, in the stairwell, etc.
We will continue to meet for worship at 9:30 am. Everyone age two and older will be required to wear a mask while indoors, with the exception of those who are leading while they are leading.
We will livestream worship each week for those who are unable or uncomfortable attending in person. We have invested in some technology upgrades that will enhance the quality of the livestream
