Worship Guidelines

  • Offering will be collected as you walk in or out of the church.  Loose change will go to Common Ground.  
  • Masks are required.
  • We will follow social distancing regulations.  
  • There will be no moving around for passing of the peace.
  • There will be no singing. 
  • There will be no Sunday School or Children’s Church, but parents with babies can use the basement if they need a private space. 
  • Each family has an assigned “worship bag” with activities and supplies for their kids to play with during the service.
  • While it is still possible, please mingle/fellowship outside. 
  • Zoom Fellowship at 6:30PM. Zoom info on Bulletin Insert.
