We hold two services each Sunday. The first happens at 9:10 AM and the second at 10:40 AM. Each service will last about 50 minutes. Our 10:40 service is also available via livestream.
what precautions are being taken to ensure the health of those attending?
We ask that everyone wear a mask (if able to) as an expression of love and care for the well-being of one another. Masks will be provided for those who need one.
Our team of First Impressions volunteers greet and cheerfully welcome worshippers by opening the exterior doors, monitoring the foyer to ensure people stand 6 feet apart as they wait to enter the sanctuary, and guiding people to designated seating. Between the two services, this team disinfects all pews and surfaces in the sanctuary, foyer and restrooms. To accommodate these measures, worshippers will not be admitted until 20 minutes prior to each service and afterward dismissed by rows directly out to the parking lot.
what about my kids?
At this time we are not offering any separate gatherings for children or youth on Sunday mornings in the building. However, we are tentatively moving forward with plans to open the Treehouse for ages 2-K on October 18. We rejoice in the presence of our children who are gifts and not burdens to our congregation, remembering that Jesus rejoiced to allow the little ones to interrupt his gatherings. We have both a nursing mothers room as well as another space where parents can go with children up to 24 months old and still be able to watch the service. We also continue to provide family ministry videos to minister to our children in their homes.
