Doors will open at 9:45 a.m. and will close promptly at 10:05 a.m.  There are no children’s classes or infant care provided.  Services are subject to change upon availability.  We will allow time for proper entry, exit, and cleaning of the building to reduce exposure between services. The live stream will be available at the 10:30 Am. service for those unable to attend.  Each service requires pre-registration online.  Any questions, please email  We will reply in a timely fashion.

Registration will collect some basic health information. If you have a compromised immune system or pre-existing conditions, we advise you to stay safe at home. The following is an outline of the protocol we will implement:

  1. The church will be properly cleaned and disinfected.

  2. There is a single point of entry in front of the building and exit behind the building.

  3. Masks are required and must remain on upon entry and throughout the entire service.

  4. Security at the front door (the point of entry) will ensure properly registered attendees only.

  5. Temperatures will be checked at the door. If measured at 100 degrees or more, entry will not be allowed. 

  6. There will be appropriately marked distancing at the point of entry, front entrance, and entrance to the sanctuary.

  7. Offering will be taken in person, online and mail-in.

Seating – Families will be grouped together and there will be appropriate spacing between single chairs and groups of chairs.

Additional Safety- 

  1. We are requesting that physical contact is limited to CDC guidelines.

  2. There will be no children’s classes or infant care offered. 

  3. No food or beverages will be served from the café.

Exit- Once service is completed, please exit out our rear door, the opposite side of the front entrance of the building to reduce contact between services.  This will allow us to appropriately clean the building for the 2nd service. 

For the comfort of all, we respectfully ask that you be mindful of precautions outlined above if we feel it necessary, we will kindly ask you to view Live Stream.  We also ask that if you or someone in your house is not feeling well to consider enjoying the service from home.
