Latest COVID-19 Update
The Church finds itself in a unique place given the spread of COVID-19. This page will have the latest updates from our church staff regarding any adjustments to programs or services.
Update May 1, 2021
What’s Normal Anyways?
We are excited above continued strides toward normalcy. What normal looks like, we are not particularly sure. However, dropping COVID numbers and restored freedoms are definitely appreciated. 
As people feel more comfortable and as the numbers of those vaccinated increase, we anticipate a greater move toward in-person attendance. We want to continue to be sensitive to the health concerns and needs of those in attendance. So here are the latest in our moves toward a safe, new normal. 


Sunday School classes are available for all age groups at traditional times and locations.

We are not opposed to alternative meeting times and locations based on the unique needs of small groups. In fact, one or two adult groups continue to meet on an altered schedule. 

While classes are free to utilize alternative times and locations, the overwhelming majority of small groups have resumed meeting at 9:30 on Sunday mornings in their traditional locations. If you are in attendance at that time, there will be a group for you.

Masks are still encouraged for those who are uncomfortable or unvaccinated.

Due to limited distancing possibilities, masks are encouraged- particularly in Sunday School classes, while travelling through the hallways, and while congregating before and after worship services. 

We appreciate the unique needs and steps taken by individuals to protect themselves and others. Please follow your conscience and make decisions based on love and concern for the person next to you. 

Temperature checks will be made for those in the preschool department.

Due to the inability of many of our preschoolers to wear masks, we would perform a no-touch temperature check on all workers and children as they check in to the nursery area.

Children or workers with a fever of 100.4 or higher would be asked to go home as a precautionary measure. While this began as a COVID-specific practice, this has proven to be helpful in protecting our kids from numerous other illnesses. 


Members will be encouraged to remain at home if they are ill.

There is a great temptation to feel guilty for missing church services. However, as an act of love for those around you, those that are feeling ill should remain at home. This is not a COVID specific guidance, but should be a general practice.


Online worship will continue.

For those that are at-risk or uncomfortable with in-person gathering, we will continue our online broadcast of services on Facebook and YouTube.
Enhanced cleaning practices will continue.
It has always been the intention of the church to care for our facilities in a manner that reflects our adoration and appreciation of God. COVID-19 merely exposed some ways that we could further care for God’s house and those that attend. 
We will continue expanded disinfecting measures. 
Additionally, each of the AC units in the building have been outfitted with UV lights to aid in killing germs, viruses and contaminates in the air. 
We will continue our diligence to provide a safe, clean environment that is conducive to worship. 
We are thankful for God’s provision through this time and will continue to attempt to exercise caution and wisdom in the days ahead. We encourage you to exercise sound judgment and make the best decisions possible for you and your family. Whether in person or online, we look forward to worshipping with you soon.

On a Journey,

Pastor Josh
