New Worship Schedule

9:00 Traditional Worship INSIDE

11:00 Contemporary Worship OUTSIDE (Inside in case of inclement weather)

11:00 Contemporary OUTDOOR Worship

Recognizing that outdoor transmission is extremely rare, and that there is plenty of room for folks who are at-risk or uncomfortable to spread out, we will no longer require masks or distancing at OUTDOOR worship.  

Of course, masks and/or distancing is still an option for everyone outdoors.

9:00 Traditional INDOOR Worship (and 11:00 when inside due to rain)

  • Required when entering, exiting, or moving around
  • OPTIONAL when in place for worship, except
  • Required during congregational singing
    • Exception: Vaccinated choir members may sing w/o masks from the chancel
  • Social distancing observed
  • Please avoid taped-off pews
  • You may choose your seats
  • Follow ushers’ instructions regarding distancing
  • Pick up “communionable” (communion kit) when entering the worship space
  • Receive communion in the pew when instructed by pastor
  • Contact information required in case contact tracing is necessary
  • Liability waiver no longer required

Applicable to Both Services
  • If you are unvaccinated, please continue to wear a mask as the CDC recommends not just for your own safety, but for love of your neighbors.
  • If you are ill, please worship at home. We plan to continue livestreaming 9:00 worship, and recording 11:00 worship for posting later.
