Check this page for the latest information on all things Sanctuary during the COVID-19 pandemic.

from the COVID-19 Safety Committee

Please respect the Governor’s order by using a facial covering inside the church.

Please keep 6-foot distances between parties inside the church.

For now, please refrain from eating and drinking inside the Sanctuary.

Modified Communion is still served at every service.

Our COVID-19 Safety Committee is sanitizing the building prior to services in accordance with the CDC’s guidelines.

We ask for your help with abiding by these guidelines so we can remain open for in-person services. If you feel you have been in the church while infected with Covid-19 please inform Dr. Kruger with when that might have been. Your medical information is kept in the strictest of confidence. If you desire antibody testing please contact Dr. Kruger .

Our hope is to create the safest worship environment and to show love and compassion for each other, from our most comfortable to our most vulnerable.

Your empathy and grace towards us, and all of those we have a duty to protect, is greatly appreciated!

The live stream of our Sunday morning service on Facebook at 10am will continue and we will post the service later in the afternoon on Sunday on our website.

We are working to restore children’s and youth ministries during the Sunday service time. More information will be coming on that shortly.


Thank you from the COVID-19 Safety Committee

Dr. Marisa Kruger and Susan Hiett

RightNow Media

RightNow Media

Did you know that you have access to RightNow Media, the Netflix of Christian Bible studies?* Hundreds of videos accessible from home for small groups, individuals, and families. Check it out using this link:

*Like the real Netflix, content on RightNow runs the gamut from outstanding to offensive. Something to keep in mind as you browse. Unlike the real Netflix, if someone invites you to “RightNow and chill,” they probably just want to hang out and watch videos. (If you don’t get that joke, ask a Millenial.)
