We will plan to worship in our outdoor chapel on October 2, weather permitting.
Indoor service safety protocols:
We are very pleased to offer indoor worship services. Each member or visitor should understand that like visiting anything else during the COVID-19 pandemic, personal safety is paramount. Our Worship & Music Committee has developed these protocols that we ask you to follow when you visit our church for Sunday services:
Our goal as a congregation is to protect each other from contacting COVID-19. We need to be willing to take precautions to protect ourselves, each other and the community. If anyone, or someone you live with, has had within the past two (2) weeks any signs of cough, fever, shortness of breath, chills, signs or symptoms of the flu, change in or loss of taste or smell, a pending or positive COVID-19 test, please stay at home and join us online for worship. It is recommended you take your temperature at home before leaving for worship. If your temperature is 100.0 degrees or above, please worship from home.
If you choose to worship with us in person, remember that you are most welcome! Please feel free to use available hand sanitizer. Masking is recommended and encouraged, but not required. Social distancing is a personal choice. We have plenty of room for you!
You may choose to contribute online, by using the DONATE button on our website. If you want to contribute regularly online, please contact our church office to establish a secure Simply Giving account.
The weekly bulletin for our service will be available in paper form at the service, but may also be viewed and downloaded online from this page.
At communion you may be served personally at the front of the sanctuary, communion can be brought to you if you are unable to come forward, or you may use a pre-packaged single-serve elements container, available in the narthex.
All of our services are now live-streamed!
We have been live-streaming our services, both indoors and out, on our Facebook page since the spring of 2020. If you are unable to attend in person, you can join in worship with us from wherever you are. Here's how it works:
1) Click on the link below for the bulletin. Downloading the bulletin to your desktop is recommended, because this will allow you to go to the Facebook page without having to open a separate window. If you are not comfortable with downloading the bulletin, then you will have to open a second window and use that to access the church Facebook page.
2) Once you have downloaded the bulletin, log onto the church's Facebook page. There are two ways to do it: you can simply click on the button to the left with the f inside, or click on the link below. You may then follow along on the service with your bulletin, going back and forth between the bulletin and the video as you desire. (Just like real church!) If you have chosen not to download the bulletin, then you will have to open a second window on your computer in order to access Facebook through that window, then toggle back and forth. Please note: if you do not have a Facebook account of your own, you may not be able to access the live stream of the service.
The service will begin at 9 a.m. on our Facebook page. If you are not able to log on at that time, you may see it later on the Facebook page, in its entirety. Note: Watching it "live" allows you to interact with the service by typing in comments.
