Our hearts are broken open as we respond to the COVID-19 health crisis. We mourn with those who have suffered. We love with those who are missing the comfort of companionship. To the best of its ability the church has established standards based on current federal, state and local guidelines. The church understands that some may feel restricted by these guidelines and others will refrain from entering the church building for weeks or months.
Our COVID Task Force helped establish guidelines for building use as well as worshiping together. Online worship will continue even as corporate worship has resumed in person. Please continue to worship online from home for as long as you need to protect your own health.
We Gather Together: This page outlines our current practices, how we are worshipping, what types of gatherings are happening, including recovery groups, study groups, weddings, baptisms, meetings, etc.
Worship Plans: This section details the safe practices we will use. Safety is our top priority.
The posts below reflect current and past responses to the crisis.
We must also ask, in the midst of this response plan, “What does it mean to be the body of Christ?” How do we balance being open and welcoming with caring for the well being of those who work, serve, learn and worship at our church campuses? We choose to honor the creation of God and the Body of Christ with safety precautions as outlined below. It is our hope that in the midst of these precautions we will continue to support one another in love, care for our neighbors and seek creative ways to extend the grace of Jesus Christ.
Let us be the church that hears the same words that Paul wrote to the church in Philippi nearly 2,000 years ago, “. . . if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” (Philippians 4:1-3)
