On Sunday December 13, we will continue to gather for worship at both 9:00 am and 11:15 am and in all upcoming weeks including our Christmas Eve services and Christmas Day. Furthermore, the guidance that our Reopening Task Force has put in place for Phases 1, 2 and 3 of our reopening plan remains in place. We will limit capacity for all Sunday morning and Christmas worship (250 people per service) by requiring pre-registration, facilitate social distancing & require the wearing of masks for all on-site worship gatherings, and thoroughly sanitize the facility on a regular basis.  We also encourage those who are most at-risk to the spread of COVID-19 to worship with us via livestream from home.  Livestream will be available for all Sunday and Christmas service times.

Thanks for your continued prayers. We’re committed to navigating this season of great joy with great faith!
