Coronavirus Update:


We are so excited about this upcoming Sunday, May 31st. We believe that it is time for us to begin worshipping together, in person, again. We want to have an incredible day of worship this Sunday, so there are a few things that we must take into consideration for that to happen.

  • We’ll be worshipping in the fellowship hall. While this is not the most comfortable, it’ll give us an opportunity to spread out into family groups and distance ourselves from each other. Our meeting space has been set out so that families will sit together 6 feet apart from other families. There will be people to assist you in matching your family size to a seating area. 
  • We will utilize all 4 entries and exits into the building: The front double glass doors, the door near the oak trees, the back door near the playground, and the door to the right of the front double glass doors. At those doors we will have someone with hand sanitizer and an extra mask (if you would like to wear one).
  • Unfortunately, at this time, we will not be able to have a nursery or children’s church, as per the guidelines the governor has set out. We will continue to have children’s church posted to our church’s Facebook at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, but will not have it in person. With that being said, we want you to know that your children will never be a bother in our services. We want your children to join in worship with you. We would much rather have a child making noise in service than no children at all. 
  • As we would love to see everyone this Sunday, there are a few groups of people who we would ask to consider staying at home for now:
    • First: those who are still concerned about meeting publicly at church. We do not feel that you are unfaithful or necessarily wrong in your decision, and we respect that. 
    • Second: if you fit into that category of vulnerable. We are not telling you to stay home, but would ask that you would consider the risks involved.
    • Third: if you have been sick or around someone who has been sick we ask that you most certainly stay home.
  • As the governor has requested in his suggestions for public worship, we do recommend that you wear a face mask of some type, and we will have some on hand if you would like one. 
  • Also, at this time, there will be no Sunday School, Sunday night, or Wednesday night services on campus. We will continue to utilize Zoom for our Wednesday night service, and will phase the others in as the governor suggests.
