Our Healthy Church Team has been constructing and finalizing a plan to safely offer in-person worship at our Church St. Campus to present to our District Superintendant. The plan has been approved to move forward! Worship may look very different than it did prior to COVID-19. However, we are excited and eager to connect with one another again face to face, but while also keeping each other safe and healthy during this season of the pandemic.

We are excited to announce that beginning on Sunday, May 23rd, we will be offering a weekly In-Person Service on our Church Street Campus at 11 am.

No pre-registration will be required for this service.
