COVID-19 Response

We continue to worship exclusively online. See our (re)Gathering Plan for more information.

Building Guidelines

Where we are:

  • The church building remains closed except by appointment. When you arrive at the church for your appointment, you’ll notice a few signs on the door and in the entryway. Please read and adhere to all building guidelines. Among others, they include: wear a mask, check yourself for symptoms, and keep distances.
  • We are currently in the orange phase -- meaning small outdoor gatherings may be held. Reach out for help getting connected or starting an online small group.


Where we’re going:

  • Our Pastors and Church Council recently shared our approved (re)Gathering Plan.  You can read the plan in its entirety here.
