Join us for worship

We gather for worship both in-person and online every Sunday at 10 a.m.

Gathering with us in person

Our onsite worship services are held outside in our courtyard, which provides ample space to gather together while still maintaining the recommended 6-feet of distance between members of different households. We are grateful to be able to welcome people back onto our church grounds, but we do ask that all attendees practice CDC-recommended health guidelines, such as mask-wearing (we have extras if you forget yours!), physical distancing, and proper sanitization practices. We also ask that attendees refrain from some of our favorite worship practices, such as shaking hands during the exchanging of the peace and congregational singing.

Upon arrival, you can expect to welcomed by one of our wonderful ushers, who will also do a quick temperature check using a touchless thermometer. If your temperature is normal, you will have the option to use a provided single-use worship bulletin (in lieu of a prayer book and hymnal), or you may download the bulletin on your smartphone or other device and follow along by clicking the link below.

While we understand that these changes in worship may take some getting used to, there is joy to be found in doing our individual part to help protect our community and keep each other well.

 

Join us online

We are thankful to live in an age that allows us to gather for worship together, even if we can't be in the same place physically. For anyone who chooses to attend our services remotely, we currently offer a live stream via Zoom. We invite you to connect on Sundays at 10 a.m. by clicking the link below. Clicking the link will open the Zoom app in a new window, and take you straight into our waiting room, where someone will be there to welcome you in about 15 minutes before the service begins.

We encourage anyone over 65 or in a high-risk group to take advantage of our online option and connect virtually and spiritually. We continue to support each member of our community as we each discern what is best for the health and safety of ourselves, our families, and our neighbors, based on the advice of health officials and our own individual circumstances.

No matter how you choose to worship, we're glad to have you join us in prayer & celebration.
