Resuming Gathered Worship

 

Updated Church Plans for January 2021

The Pastoral Body decided that for the month of January we will only have a Morning Worship service. We will not have Sunday School or the Evening Gathering. Nursery and Children's Church will continue to meet during the Morning Worship service.

Sunday Morning Worship

We will meet in the Main Auditorium at 10:30 a.m. for Morning Worship. The Miller Activities Center is available for those who would like to livestream the service in a distanced setting along with other brothers and sisters.

Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry is available for Nursery-5th grade for the 10:30 a.m. Morning Worship.

Logistics of Sunday Morning Indoor Gatherings

Seating: 

  • We have designated distanced areas (every-other row) in the corners of the Main Auditorium, both on the main floor and the balcony.
  • The Miller Activities Center (MAC or "A" Building) is available for those who would like to livestream the service in a distanced setting along with other brothers and sisters.
  • We would ask those who worship in the Main Auditorium to sit as family units with some distance between you and the next family unit. While we do not plan to close rows or mandate a number of seats between people, we would ask you to leave some space beside and in front of your family unit.
  • We invite anyone to take the additional precautionary step of wearing a mask, though this is not mandatory. 

Congregational Singing: 

  • Congregational singing will be near the end of the gathering. If any attending are uncomfortable being present during indoor singing, they may leave before the singing segment begins.
  • We welcome attendees to take the additional precaution of wearing a shield or mask both during and after indoor singing until they have exited the building.

Offering: 

  • Offering boxes will be available near the exits to the auditorium and Miller Activities Center.
