How to attend Worship next Week
If you would like to attend worship on November 1st at 10 am, you will need to call the office between Monday, October 26th and Thursday, October 29th, to make a reservation with Martha Hight.
You also may email Martha before Noon on Thursday the 29th.
When you call, Martha will ask you to respond to these questions:
1.    Have you or anyone in their household tested positive forCOVID in the past 14 days?
2.    Have you or anyone in your household been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID in the past 14 days?
3.    Are you waiting on results of a COVID test?
4.    Have you had a fever, a cough, loss of taste/smell or shortness of breath in the last 14 days?
You must be able to answer questions 1-4 with a “NO”. You must also be willing to take your temperature at home on Sunday Morning to make sure you are not running a fever and you must be willing to wear a mask while at the church. These are not negotiable, and we trust you will understand why.
For those who choose to refrain from attending worship in-person, the service will be streamed on our YouTube channel. A recording of the service will be available there shortly after the streamed service ends. You can subscribe to the channel and an email will be sent each Sunday morning with a link to the live-stream and an order of service for the day.
In the coming weeks we hope to expand the number of folks who can attend services and streamline the process for making reservations and attending. If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Deacon Chairman (Andy Archer), Vice-Chairman (Greg Hicks), your deacon, or the church staff. This entire project is a work in progress and we look forward to the ways we learn and grow together by carefully taking these steps as a church.

Worship Resource for October 11th, 2020

This morning our worship resource continues to change shape.
Above is the link to our service. Attached below is the PDF of the worship service’s Order of Service.

Please click on the link and document to view it in its entirety.

This morning’s video resource continues our transition to in-person worship in anticipation of our first live-streamed worship service next week. The shift in this resource allows us to practice what the in-person streamed services will look and feel like when we begin to allow a small group of folks back into the sanctuary for in-person worship on October 18th.

Details about in-person worship beginning on the 18th were in this week’s E-News and Forecaster. They are also reprinted below. If you have any further questions at all, please contact the church office or drop us an email.

Sunday Morning Worship Resource for October 4th, 2020

This morning our worship resource begins to change shape.
Attached below is the PDF of the worship service. Please click on the link and document to view it in its entirety.

The video resource above begins to transition our worship resources from a produced worship resource to a streamed worship service. That is why you will recognize some differences in the service. The reason for this shift in our resource is that it allows us to practice what the in-person streamed services will look and feel like when we begin to allow a small group of folks back into the sanctuary for in-person worship on October 18th.

Details about in-person worship beginning on the 18th will be in the E-News that will be published on October 6th and the Forecaster that will be dated October 9th.If you have any further questions at all, please contact the church office or drop us an email.
