UPDATE FROM PASTOR CHIP - IN PERSON WORSHIP
Our 9:00 AM Heritage service and all of our Mosaic services will continue to be offered weekly online. For those of you wishing to gather in general proximity to others, see friendly faces and connect to sacred space, we will begin to add some limited and safe in-person options beginning July 12, 2020 (you received details on this in an earlier eNote). We will offer a 9:00 AM drive-in service open to any and all in our North Parking Lot. We are testing to see if there is an audience for this service. An order of worship and words for prayers and songs will be attached to eNotes the Monday prior each week. Participants will remain in their vehicles and can keep vehicles running with a/c if desired (sound will be broadcast into your vehicle on your radio).
We will also open our 10:00 AM Mosaic service for 75 people properly socially distanced to assist us in lifting our Online Broadcast. Pre-registration for July 12, July 19 and July 26 is now open and you can register here. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS BEFORE REGISTERING FOR THESE SERVICES.Wait lists will be generated, and our goal is to offer a second in-person option at 11:30 AM in August.
Let us continue to “Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Tell of his salvation from day to day” (1 Chronicles 16:23).
In person worship will continue to be suspended through the month of May. Current church operations will continue as they have since mid-March. We are still in the business of being the church! Please read the link for the full update and keep Sheltering in God's Presence.
