Newsletter – June 12th, 2020

Remember to check for updates in 2020

Important Updates:
  • Two Service Times Starting June 14th: View the announcement video here –
    We encourage you to watch the video above so you are actively prepared for service on Sunday.
    Starting SUNDAY, June 14th, we will be starting two services as we slowly start to see an increase in in-person attendance.
    We will have on service at 8:30 am and another service at our regularly scheduled time, 10 am. Our livestreams will continue at 10 am on Facebook and Youtube. We ask that anyone who can make it to the 8:30 am service please do so! This opens up space at the 10 am service for guests who don’t watch the videos and receive the newsletters. Also, if you do happen to come to the in-person services, please make sure you are moving all the way to the front of the sanctuary, and please try to leave the middle section open for larger families.
    We are also asking for 3 volunteers to help clean in between services. If you are interested in serving, contact
    Please continue to check back here or on the app for updates!
