Reopening

We are beginning to meet in person June 28th onwards. As we continue to monitor guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe manner, we are committed to creating an environment that meets current local and state recommendations and guidelines. This will include reduced capacity, pre-registration for households, no children’s ministry, and increased cleaning procedures. We encourage you to make the best choice for your family and situation as you consider attending in person or continuing to worship with us online.
