Women's Bible Study

The Women’s Bible Study is meeting Wednesday Mornings at 10 AM on Zoom. Contact us for more information.

Mask Required

In order to keep people safe, we are requiring mask to be worm while you are in the building. The mask needs to be worn over your nose and mouth. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one at the door.

Social Distancing

We are following health authorities guidance in regards to distancing. Our sanctuary seating is distanced with area blocked off to observe distancing. Households are able to sit together. Our ushers will help you find a place to sit in our sanctuary.

Entering the Building

When you enter the building, you can use one of three entrances: the main front doors, the handicap ramp door by the elevator, or the northwest door under the awning. There will be someone to greet you at the door. Upon entering the building you will be asked to sign-in and sanitize your hands.

Other COVID-19 Precautions

  • There will not be any passing of the peace or any other activity that involves physical contact – no handshaking or hugging, please!
  • We will have music, but we will not have any congregational singing or choir.
  • We will not have coffee or fellowship after worship and will encourage you not to mingle after the service.
