In Person Services

In person service options exist for two services on Sundays:

9:30 - Contemporary Service for up to 200 people.

11:00 - Traditional Service for up to 100 people.

Read below for answers to common questions about those services: 

 When can I potentially come worship in the building again?

You can join us this Sunday. We can accommodate 300 people.

 Why 300 people?

Current guidelines limit us to 50% capacity of the space we are using. We will continue livestreaming a service at 9:30 from our downstairs worship center. It will look very similar to the last 14 weeks for those who continue to engage digitally. That space at 50% capacity allows us to have 200 people.

Following that service, we will have an 11:00 service upstairs in our traditional sanctuary. It’s 50% capacity will allow us to have 100 people attend that service.

What if more people show up than that?

We have been having in person services for a few weeks now. We began with people pre-registering and have seen a good representation of how many people are currently ready to return or to visit with us. We don't have reason to think we'd be turning anyone away right now.

Will I have to wear a mask?

You will likely find many wearing masks (it’s strongly encouraged by health guidelines) but won’t be turned away without one.

Will there be singing?

There will be live music led in the services and opportunity to participate with it. We will give in room instructions about how to do so while honoring the safety of others. This may mean you adjust your volume (not your enthusiasm), you engage physically in other ways than your voice, or it may feel normal for many of you.

What else should we know?

As we open, there won’t be other ministries available. We won’t have food or coffee, you’ll need to sit together as a family, and you will be expected to stay 6 feet apart from people outside your household for the time you are physically here. We won’t have hugs, handshakes or high fives, though we’ll joyfully greet each other in appropriately distanced ways.

What do I do if I have a much more specific question?

Don't hesitate to fill out our contact form for with any questions you have. You can find it here.

We are looking forward to seeing our dispersed church begin gathering in communal worship again. To encourage each other in ways that are more familiar. We also know that many will continue to engage digitally. We will continue offering that as a great option. We also encourage people to gather in groups of 25 or less in homes to worship together if you are comfortable doing that. We think these options give us lots of flexibility as we still aim to equip people to find life and faith in Christ and look forward to seeing what happens through the rest of summer as God rests His hand of grace on us.
