Attend a Sunday Service in Person
Church Council has voted to go back to in person worship in a limited fashion. We are observing CDC guidelines, and can only allow 25 people in the sanctuary.
So as not to exceed the number recommended for social distancing and safety, we ask that you RSVP for yourself and members of your family. Vaccinations recommended, masks required.
You’ll receive a return email explaining the plans that Church Council and Worship Board made to keep us all safe.
Attend in January – here’s the form!
Online (especially during the Covid-19 pandemic)–
Note: We have streamed our services live for several years, and regularly have watchers from several countries; however, during the pandemic, our online service has become our only service, and is better and richer than ever before. The order of service is more or less the same as in-person services. A whole team of people spends a great deal of time and energy seeing to it that our virtual services are as diverse and interesting as our in-person ones. You may watch here on our website, on our Facebook page, or on our YouTube channel. On the latter two options, you will also have the ability to see and join in chat, including greetings, prayer requests, and responses to the service. You will see and hear:
- Greetings from various members
- A welcome from the pastor
- Safely pre-recorded Bible readings and prayers from many members
- A children’s moment
- A dynamic sermon of about 20 minutes
- Prayer time. The bulletin will have the main prayer as well as some questions for reflection and meditation, and the pastor will guide us through some of those; a member or friend will also pray and will lead us in the Lord’s Prayer. See the form of Lord’s Prayer we use in the current bulletin. The one thing we cannot do is have our Embodied Prayer Stations, but you can find suggestions you can do at home here: Spiritual Tools.
- A closing hymn, which will be sung solo-style by one singer, with the words on the screen so that you may sing along wherever you are. (The one thing we wish technology allowed was to sing actually together, without digital delays and confusion!)
- A blessing and a final, usually meditative, musical selection
- An online coffee and conversation time after the service. Click Here for the After Church Fellowship Hour Zoom link. It will be in the chat box, in the bulletin, and on our Zoom Opportunities page here on the website.
