Covid-19: Current Updates

Last Updated June 17, 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 holding online worship services each Sunday, starting at 9:45AM.  Go to the livestream page, where you will find resources to aid you in worshipping at home. This includes materials provided by the Board of Christian Education for children.

Emerge: What Protects Us, What Will Save Us    Over the course of four Sundays, June 21 – July 12, guest preacher Rev. Quinn G. Caldwell takes a look at shelter and surfacing in the stories of Noah and the Ark, Esther, Nicodemus, Jesus and the Syrophoenician Woman, and the Resurrection.   “Which shelters are necessary? Which are not? How do we know when to come out of them, and how do we do it when it’s time?”

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.

Open Table

We are excited to partner with The Lost Lamb to revive the Open Table program, which will offer fresh food, made locally with love on a pay-what-you-can basis. This meal program will keep mouths fed and a local restaurant engaged. Learn more and order online.

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.
