Outdoor Worship Has Started! Indoor Alternative Explained.

OUTDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE

We are moving to full outdoor worship services in the backyard.  If weather prevents us from gathering outdoors we will move indoors in a limited capacity. See the details about these services below. We will continue to offer online worship as well.

INDOOR WORSHIP SERVICE – INCLEMENT WEATHER ALTERNATIVE 

The decision to hold the service indoors will be made by Pastor Amy and Music Director Brooke Joyce and announced in an email message by Friday afternoon.

  • If a sudden weather change is to occur at the time of the planned Outdoor Service, the decision to move indoors will be made by 7:30 am on Sunday and announced in an email message.
  • Worship indoors is limited to 50 people, due to the size of our Sanctuary, with sign up required. A sign-up form will be shared in Pastor Amy’s weather-related email messages and posted on the website.

During this season of outdoor worship, it will not work well to livestream the outdoor service. This means that, starting in May, our online worship service will be shorter and simpler than the current online service. It will include scripture, sermon and music. Online worship will still premiere every Sunday at 9:30 am on our YouTube channel. When we return to regularly scheduled worship in the sanctuary, we will then livestream the indoor service.
