Worship service

Join us for service on Sunday mornings in the Worship Center at 9am or 11am. While we're making some adjustments for Covid (see below), we're delighted to continue to worship together. Read below about  the modifications we're making to be reasonably safe and abide by local ordinances. 


If you can't join us in person, we'd be so glad to have you worship with us via live stream at 9am (replay of the service is available as soon as the livestream ends). Find all our digital resources here.


Nursery will be available at the 11am service.

While signing up isn't required for attendance, we are better able to prepare if you let us know you're coming. Thank you!

FAQs

Why are we being required to wear masks?

  Wearing a mask is a way to love and protect our neighbor - our brothers and sisters - from this pandemic. Several factors support this position. First, the primary way the virus is transmitted appears to be through the air and this transmission can occur despite social distancing if people are in a confined space for a length of time. (For example, a worship service, especially if there is singing.) A mask will significantly diminish this sort of spread.

  Also, it appears that at least one third of these infections are spread by people who have no symptoms. Some are recently infected and have not yet become sick and some who are infected never become sick and unwittingly continue to infect others. This is why we are wearing masks, even though they are inconvenient and uncomfortable, as are many other acts of love.


Why are we being asked to register?

  Registering in advance will help us arrange the worship center in such a way that social distancing can be maintained. Pre-registration will also help us to not exceed the recommended capacity of our facility.


What happens after the first 250 people register? Will they not be able to regather for worship?

  At this time, we can only have 250 people. Keeping the service smaller allows for better social distancing and other precautions. However, if we have more than 250 people who want to attend, we will add another service.
