To Begin Again: Worship in the Sanctuary

To Begin Again: Worship in the Sanctuary

Welcome to our page dedicated to providing everything you need to know as we open the Sanctuary for indoor worship. While we are excited to return to Sunday morning in-person indoor worship in the sanctuary, we recognize the need for continued vigilance and love to ensure as a community that we minimize the risk of both spreading and contracting COVID-19.  As disciples of Jesus, we seek above all else to love the Lord our God and to love our neighbors as ourselves, so following guidance from global health experts, we have prepared to begin again together.
