As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Sunday services will be held remotely. Below you will find the upcoming order of service for this week's worship service. Thank you for bearing with us in this time of uncertainty and for joining with us in spirit as a community of believers.
Worship services will be available to view beginning at 10:30 AM each Sunday. They will be viewable in the space below or on YouTube. Previous services are listed below.
Beginning July 5th, we will transition from pre-recorded to live-streaming worship services. The video will stream on this page and also on our YouTube channel. One important note, between 10:30-11:30am the video will show you a live view of the service as it is happening, not from the beginning, so be ready by 10:30am if you want to see the whole service live. After the service has ended a recording of it will be available to watch any time. The prelude will begin at 10:25 AM.
Sunday, July 5
A recording of the service will be available once it has finished processing.
Sunday School will be held online using the Zoom conferencing platform. Information about Zoom and getting ready to Zoom can be found on our Zoom info page. Please review that information if it is your first time using Zoom.
