Join us online Saturdays at 5:00 PM or Sundays at 10:00 AM or listen to the podcast from your location.
Responding to the Pandemic
Our staff and volunteers have been hard at work to keep our gatherings safe and sanitary for you and your family. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have worked closely with city officials and healthcare professionals to keep our environments operating safely so that we can continue to serve our community, love our neighbors, and worship together.
Help Keep Our Gatherings Safe
Masks are provided and encouraged in all common areas. Masks can be removed once seated and with appropriate social distancing (6ft apart).
Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If you're feeling sick, we ask that you please join us online. See below for Self-Check Health Assessment Questions.
Partner with us in limiting the spread of germs by not hugging or shaking hands. Give an elbow or a toe tap to say, "hello."
Keep at least 6 feet between you and other congregants.

What are your cleaning and sanitation steps?

- We clean and disinfect high touch areas such as, touch screens, printers, light switches, restrooms, tables, buttons, handrails, faucets, doorknobs, shared toys, and any common touch points of surfaces that will be utilize by multiple individuals.
- In kids and student environments, we clean and disinfect activities every 15 minutes or after each use (i.e., game controllers, balls, equipment).
