Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is necessary that we minimize events and "face-to-face" gatherings on the church grounds.
At the present time, the only gathering being held on the church property is the Sunday Morning Service. It begins every Sunday Morning at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. Provisions have been put in place to help insure the safety of all attending. Those provisions are outlined at the bottom of this page.
Other opportunities for worship are available through "live streaming" (as outlined below) and this website.
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, and will make adjustments as necessary to secure the care and safety of all.

Processes and Procedures For Services Held in the Church Sanctuary
At this time, only the Sunday Morning Service is being held on the church property.
During the Sunday Morning Service, no nursery will be provided, there will be no children’s church, and no Sunday School.
As you arrive, you will be greeted and instructed on how to enter the building and where to sit.
The doors will be propped open into the sanctuary in order to reduce surface contact to a minimum.
Those in attendance must maintain social distancing.
We are asking that everyone in attendance wear a mask. If you wish to attend but do not have a mask, we can provide one for your use.
Hand sanitizer will be available at both sanctuary entrances.
There will be no bulletin provided. Announcements will be put on the screens before the start of the worship service and at its conclusion.
While the offering plate will not be passed, you will still have the opportunity to worship through giving by making use of the offering plates placed at the two front entrances to the sanctuary.
The sanctuary will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before each service.
Bathrooms will be available, but we are asking that you make every effort to not use them except for an emergency if at all possible.
If you, or anyone in your household, are sick, please, stay home.
If you are not ready to begin gathering publicly, we understand and want you to feel no pressure concerning your decision to continue to shelter in place.
We Would Love to Have You Visit Soon!
