Covid-19: Current Updates

Last Updated April 9, 2020

The call to be a Christian community does not cease in times of crisis; in fact, it rings louder and more true than ever. However, things will be different. As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds, turn to this page for current information on how we will remain connected and attuned to the needs of the world.

Worship

In-person worship is cancelled until further notice. We will be celebrating Holy Week using live stream worship and posted videos, with an Easter service on Sunday starting at 9:45AM.  Go to the livestream page, where you will find resources to aid you in worshipping at home.  For the Easter Sunrise Service at 6:30 am, click here to join via Zoom.

Meetings

All scheduled meetings and gatherings of the church and outside users will move to on-line using Zoom. If you need to schedule a meeting, please contact Will in the church office.

Office Hours

Brent and Will will be in the office (rotating on different days) from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to make sure that someone is in the building to answer calls and e-mails and receive any deliveries. In-person visits are discouraged unless absolutely essential. If an in-person visit is necessary, please call the office in advance. Please use only the back door to the church and sanitize your hands before entering and exiting.

Giving

Financial support remains essential both to pay for regular expenses (staff, utilities, insurance, etc.) and to support the new ways we are ministering (e.g., online services, food assistance support, etc.). You may mail checks to the church office or give online.

Sanctuary

Sanctuary is one of the most important things we can offer to people. With sadness, we are closing the sanctuary until further notice both to do a deep clean and also to try consider if there is any way we can keep the sanctuary open in a safe way.

Building Closed

Except as noted above, the building is closed until further notice. Will is going to be sanitizing the church to ensure that it is safe and clean for future use. He will be closing off rooms and marking them as cleaned. PLEASE respect that work and do not enter any closed-off rooms so that we can be sure that the building is safe for future use.
