  You can continue to view our Worship Service Sundays at 7pm on our Facebook Site or YouTube Channel.

Due to the storms in the forecast for the upcoming weekend, we have decided to cancel the in person worship for Sunday, August 2nd since it was scheduled to be held outdoors.  Instead, we will have online only, which will be available for viewing on our Facebook page and Youtube Channel at 7pm on Sunday, August 2nd.  We apologize for the cancellation, but know that holding an outdoor service wouldn’t be possible in the weather we are predicted to have.

This past week the Council and Ministry Directors held a combined online meeting in which we were able to come up with a plan to return to indoor worship.  Beginning next Sunday, August 9th, we will be holding face to face worship.  In order to adhere to the social distancing requirements, we will be holding 2 services (8:30am and 9:30am) both in the multi ministry building.  Since there is a requirement of 25 or less at indoor gatherings, we are requiring that you call (or email) the church office and let us know which service you will be attending.  This way we can make sure we are staying within the attendance number.  We also plan to add an additional service if we have more people “register” to attend than we can hold in these 2 services.  By registering for service we will be better able to make plans to add an additional service if needed.

We will continue to do a blended service (using some hymns as well as some praise songs) for all services.  

To help with sanitation between services, we are asking attendees to bring your own chair.  This will allow us to hold 2 (or more if needed) services without the need to sanitize all the chairs in between.

We know there have been a lot of changes recently and we thank you all for your support and prayers.  These decisions have been made with everyone’s safety and health in mind.

We look forward to worshiping online with you this Sunday, August 2nd at 7pm and in person on August 9th!
