Sunday Worship Gatherings

We are confident that with your cooperation, we will be able to continue gathering in-person safely. Due to building layout and capacity differences, gathering in-person may look slightly different at each of our congregations. We are grateful for the ways we can stay in touch and be together in whatever capacity you are able to join us!

Participating through the Livestream

We are planning to livestream for many more months, at least until we feel confident everyone can safely attend our gatherings. Even though we will continue to gather online for now, we don’t believe “digital church” is a long-term solution nor something like an acceptable form of “the new kind of church.” Rather, we believe gathering together and in a physical space is of utmost importance for the church.

Safety

As always, driven by the sacrificial love of the gospel, we will put other’s needs in front of your own, and we will inspire you to be generous towards others who have different views than your own.

We hold in tension people’s safety with the fact that meeting together in person as a church is very good.
