Watch The Live Video Service
Watch The Live Video Service

Our Sunday services will be held outside and online until further notice.

If you can't join us at 9:30am Sunday, a button will be available that says, "Watch the Service".

Through the month of July, our Sunday morning service will be held outside. If you cannot join us, the service will also be streamed live online during that time. In case of inclement weather, services will be online only. If the weather forces us to cancel the outdoor service, we will provide that notice on the church website by 8 A.M. on Sunday morning. Bring your own seating and shade umbrellas are welcome as well. If you would like to attend, but would prefer to stay in your vehicle, there will be a section designated for parking. When you arrive, you will be directed by a friendly volunteer on where to park. You can give my email at for those who have any questions related to outdoor services.

Other things to note:

  • We would ask you to bring your own seating for the service.
  • We would like to maintain social distancing as much as possible, so please set up your chairs accordingly. If you plan to bring an umbrella or canopy for shade, please set those up on the "edges" of the field to prevent blocking the view of others.
  • If you would prefer to stay in your car for the service, we will have spaces reserved for cars to park so they can (hopefully!) hear what's going on.
  • The services will take place on the WEST side of our building (the same side as the entrance off Simmers Road) on the grassy area on that side of the building.
  • The services will be no more than 1 hour long.
  • There will be no separate arrangements for childcare (nursery or pre-school), Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, or Adult Bible Classes. It will just be the one-hour worship service. One of the key ways that the virus has the potential to spread is through singing. If you plan to sing "out loud," please plan on wearing a facemask. Otherwise, please refrain from singing out loud and simply listen and reflect on the lyrics to the worship songs.
  • We will also be providing "live streaming" for those who are not yet comfortable with returning to meeting in person. The live stream will allow you to watch from home what is happening at the church online in real-time. The worship and the message will not be pre-recorded as it has been in previous weeks.
  • If the weather does not cooperate, we will make a decision about the service by 8:00 AM on that Sunday morning and post that information on our church website. The services will NOT be moved indoors. The in-person gathering will be cancelled for that week, but we WILL provide the live stream so you can connect with the service online from home.
  • We don't plan to use the indoor restrooms at the church. Instead, we will provide portable restrooms equipped with hand sanitizer should they be needed.
