COVID-19 Guidelines:

With thanks to God for the opportunity to gather for worship in His house, and with respect for His representatives in our government, we will follow health guidelines to the best of our ability.

Hand sanitizer and facial tissue are available throughout our building and in each pew. Please try to touch as few surfaces as possible. 

We have plenty of seating.  Please spread out comfortably.  If you like to sing out, please don't sit directly behind someone else. You are welcome to sit in the Fellowship Hall.

Our Offering Plate is on a stand in the entryway. We will not pass it through the pews. Ushers will bring it forward for placement on God’s altar at the usual point in the service. If you didn’t have the opportunity to place your offering in the plate before the service, you are welcome to take it to the counters in our Fellowship Hall after the service.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you think of any other guidelines, please tell Pastor or a church council member.
