Your Safety Is Important To Us
We have now added indoor services! This is in addition to our online service each week. Our plans are based on current community conditions and follow CDC and local government guidelines. These plans will be revised as our community situation changes, all the while remaining committed to loving God and our neighbors well.
We will meet for indoor Sunday services at 8 am and 10 am, and Thursday mornings at 11 am.
If you are sick or have an underlying health condition that makes you vulnerable or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please continue to join us online.
We Have Nursery and Children's Sunday School!
Here's the Scoop:
When you Arrive
At the Sanctuary
Please enter the church through the front doors. Masks or facial coverings are required inside the building, and social distancing will be maintained throughout the service. We will provide masks for those who need one.
If you have a medical condition that makes wearing a mask impossible, we encourage you to join us online at 10 am each week. We will be using every other row for seating, and ushers will assist family groups to sit at least 6 feet apart from other people.
At the Nursery
The nursery staff will have followed new cleaning protocols in the classroom prior to your family arriving. Nursery check-in will be at the front doors of the Front Office building. If you have not had your temperature checked, one of our Nursery staff will take the entire family’s temperature before checking the child in. You can show your nursery check-in sticker at the front doors of the church to show that your temperature has already been taken.
If a different person will be picking the child up than is on their printed sticker, please tell the nursery staff and they will write the name of who is picking them up on the sticker. You will receive a pager that the nursery staff will use if they need to contact you during service about your child.
During the Service
In the Sanctuary
Please follow the instructions of the ushers as they help everyone find their seat. We will bring Holy Communion to you. The bread and wine are individually packaged. All baptized followers of Jesus Christ are welcome to share in the Lord’s Table. Ushers will also collect the empty cups after we receive the bread and wine together.
In the Nursery
Our nursery staff have been training in new cleaning protocols that will be practiced while caring for your children - including between diaper changes, in the bathrooms and in the cribs.
When We Leave
The ushers will dismiss us row by row and we ask that you exit the church through the side doors. Popsicles are outside on the patio following the services in place of coffee hour at this time.
We have added extra cleaning protocols for all the surfaces and chairs, as well as our restrooms and doors. The building is cleaned before and after each service.
You will pick your child up at the nursery check-in spot. There will be a nursery staff present to bring the child to you. Children will only be released to the parent or guardian listed on their check-in sticker.
As we worship together, our services will focus on the essential elements of our worship to God:
- Listening to God through His word
- Responding to God in song and prayer
- Sharing in Holy Communion
Like our outdoor services, we will gather around an hour, allowing us to reduce risks and provide time for cleaning between services.
Type of Service
The 8 am service will follow Rite 1 (with vestments) and the 10 am service on Sundays and 11 am on Thursdays will follow an adapted Rite 2 liturgy similar to our outdoor service.
