We are currently offering only in-person Worship Services on Thursdays at 6:30 a.m. and Sundays at 10:00 a.m. Due to social distancing restrictions we ask that you RSVP if you plan to come to the Sunday morning service by Using the QR code to select to reply. There will be no classes or childCare. All other activities are canceled until further notice. However, our services will be live streamed on Sunday at 10 a.m. on our Facebook page and available to view afterwards.  Additionally, Bible study classes are being held via Zoom. Email


What you can expect when you plan on attending an in-person service:

  1. If you are sick or show ANY symptoms, please stay home. Even if you suppose your symptoms are “only allergies”, we ask that you not attend.
  2. Be prepared to honor all social-distancing guidelines while at the church – please no hand shaking or hugs and stay 6’ apart.
  3. The worship center chairs will be arranged in various groupings (from 1 to 6). Please seat in an arrangement that will maximize seating for others. You can expect plenty of socially distanced space between you and other families and individuals.
  4. Consider wearing a mask. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. Wearing a mask is a considerate thing to do for others who may be more susceptible.
  5. Plan to arrive right on time and go directly to your seat. Sorry, but we must limit our fellowship during this time. We know, it’s hard!
  6. We aim to keep the worship service to roughly an hour in length.
  7. There will be limited restroom access. We ask that you plan accordingly ahead of time and help us minimize restroom use. Services will be limited to one hour, so this will help.
  8. That said, we will not be providing coffee, but you are free to bring your own.
  9. Additional hand sanitizer will be available as you enter and exit the sanctuary.
  10. No other Sunday or weekday on campus ministries are being held. No Sunday School, children or youth ministries or childcare.
  11. No offering plates will be passed, so we ask that you continue using online giving options or use the no-touch offering receptacles in the foyer and Welcome Center.
  • WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A MASK? We have masks available at the Welcome Center.
  • WHEN WILL SUNDAY SCHOOL RESUME? It is too early to tell. We are committed to focusing on getting worship services running well again. It is our hope that we will learn a lot that can be applied to starting up the rest of our ministries soon.
  • CAN I SIT WITH SOMEONE NOT IN MY FAMILY UNIT? We ask that you honor all social distancing guidelines that are still in effect. Sitting with a friend would violate the 6-foot social-distance guideline.
