The Latest in Light of COVID-19 (3/19/21)

SUNDAY SCHOOL IS BACK!
Our Sunday school class for children and youth resumes this week! We have a brand new classroom for them upstairs above the gym, and we are so excited to welcome back our young people! The class will start at 9:45. If your children or grandchildren are planning to attend this Sunday, please fill out this brief form ASAP so we can make sure we have enough materials prepared.

We have classes for parents and grandparents, too! Our young adults/young at heart class led by Lindsey Treuil will meet at 9:45 in the library to begin a study on Acts, and our adult Bible study class led by Gene Branch is meeting at the same time in the Fellowship Hall. We hope you'll join us this Sunday for Sunday school and worship!

Easter Egg Hunt
   We will offer an Easter egg hunt for the kids on Easter Sunday morning (April 4) at 9:45 am during the Sunday school hour. Bring a basket and come prepared for some Easter fun! Easter Worship will be at our regular time of 11 am.
    If you took empty eggs from the church to fill for our egg hunt, please return them by Sunday, March 28.

EASTER ESCAPE ROOM EVENT
Sunday, March 28 - 4pm

  Save the date for our Easter Escape Room event on Sunday, March 28 at 4 pm! This escape room will take you back in time to solve mysteries related to the arrest, trial, crucifixion, and resurrection of Christ. Kids and adults will enjoy solving puzzles and cracking codes to unlock the mystery. We will be following Covid safety procedures, so grab your family or your quarantine pod, and join us for this fun event! We'll end the evening with a socially distanced dinner in the gym.

SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
  We are back to worshiping at 11am on our campus. We are still in the gym where we can space properly, and wearing masks to keep our neighbors safe, but it's beginning to feel more and more like church, again!

Our nursery has also reopened!
  For your children's safety, our nursery staff will be masked, but children will not have to wear masks, unless they choose to do so.

We are currently offering two Worship experiences on Sunday mornings:
