Worship Changes as of July 11

Beginning Sunday, July 11, we will have in-person services each Sunday at 8:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m., with an online worship option at 10:45 a.m. that will permanently continue. The nursery will be open but not staffed until the fall.

The online worship service time changes to 10:45 a.m. and will be a live YouTube broadcast of the service in the Sanctuary. This allows us all to share one worship service, whether from home or the Sanctuary. We will broadcast the 10:45 a.m. service on the internet and record it for anyone to view later on YouTube. Worshippers may be seen on camera. The rear of the Sanctuary is unlikely to be the focus of most camera angles, except for processions at the beginning and end of the service. The balcony is also available for those who would prefer to be off camera. Except for leaders, musicians and assistants, we do not plan to do close-angled shots for the broadcast. We will not broadcast or record the 8:15 a.m. service.

We no longer require masks, physical distance or other COVID safety measures in the building. We should all notice and respect the boundaries of those who still wear masks and keep distance. We can continue our mission to care and heal by respecting all choices. If anyone in your household doesn’t feel well or has been exposed to COVID, please choose to stay home.
