Join in Worship This Sunday – Inside at 9 a.m. / Outside at 11 a.m.
Beginning Sunday, November 1st, we will begin our re-entry into Sanctuary worship at 9 a.m. Abiding by state government rules, we will gather at 25% capacity, distanced and masked, in our beautiful sanctuary to watch the weekly pre-recorded worship video with a pastor present to lead us. (To keep the parking lot open for the 11 a.m. outdoor service, those attending both the 9 a.m. indoor service and 11 a.m. outdoor service should find other parking spaces around the church.)
Yes, our weekly video worship recordings will continue to be available each Sunday morning on YouTube and Vimeo for those who desire to safely worship together at home.
9 a.m. – Sanctuary – INSIDE (by reservation only)
You are invited to gather in the Sanctuary where we will view together the same pre-recorded online service for Sunday that is available for all our online worshippers that now reach around the world. Prayer ministry available on the Church Patio following the service. Children are invited to watch the pre-recorded Sunday School Adventure in Tankersley Hall with Ms. Gail. Email: Gail Onodera, Children’s Ministry, Co-Director
Every in-person service is designed to be a touch-free experience and will abide by all of the currently recommended health precautions such as social distancing and face coverings.
Required: Reservation please Click Here (limited capacity); Face covering and Social distancing

IMPORTANT NOTE: This will NOT be a live worship event. We will be viewing our online Sunday morning service together. Please note that there will be no live singing by attendees, nor simultaneous recitations. On the day of the service, one member of the pastoral staff along with a few others will be here to greet you and check you in and guide you to your pew. Restrooms will be open both in the sanctuary and in Tankersley Hall.
Because we are in a time of pandemic, your health and safety is our top priority. To that end, our plan utilizes the guidance and direction we have received from the CDC, County Health Officials, and those in the medical field who are best suited to advise us. When you register you will be asked to verify that you are Covid-19 FREE.
11 a.m. – 3rd Street Lot – OUTSIDE – 30 min, gathering
For those who would like to gather outside (same format as our Saturday Evening Alive service) we will gather in our 3rd Street parking lot for prayer, music, scripture, reflection. Chairs provided. You are welcome to bring your beach chair. Prayer ministry available following the service. The children’s area will be set up with Legos and more opportunities for creative play. Or children may join Ms. Gail and go to Tankersley Hall after the service begins to watch the pre-recorded Sunday School Adventure.
Required: Face covering and Social distancing
Good weather! (Please, check your Friday e-Connections for updates.)
Corporate worship is important in the building of our faith and the encouragement we receive when we worship together. In this time of challenge and personal separation, God is still at work in our lives.
This is your decision. Do what you feel is best for you. We will continue to produce the pre-recorded online worship service until that day when all of us can rejoice together and sing praises to our Lord and Savior without limitation.
