We're returning to limited in-person worship on Sunday, October 4th.

Beginning in October, we will be host in-person worship services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays for a maximum of 50 people. These will require an RSVP, and we're using all the best practices to prevent COVID-19 transmission. We will continue to stream our services virtually every Sunday morning at 9:30am regardless.

We are committed to ongoing conversations with our team of lay leaders whose expertise has helped us map out the journey ahead. Like everything with COVID-19, our approach to in-person gatherings is subject to the always-changing landscape of guidelines and local outbreaks. Stay in touch here and in our E-News for any changes to COVID-19 policy.

Sunday Morning Circles

Sundays this Fall from 10:45am - 12:00pm (beginning September 20th)

Join us on the North Lawn following Sunday worship for space to connect in-person while socially distanced. You can either drive by and say hello or set up in one of our socially distanced circles and catch up with friends new and old. Get your coffee mug filled up, pick up a granola bar, receive prayer from a 1:1 Minister, and reconnect. Friendly reminder to bring your own coffee mug if possible! Questions? Reach out to Michele Steinke.
