  • Ways to Worship

    In the Sanctuary

    We are currently worshiping in-person in our sanctuary. Please assess your own health and be prepared to follow the guidelines publicized in the newsletter and bulletin as you consider attending worship indoors. If, at any time, the local schools switch back to online-only instruction, indoor in-person worship will be suspended and only the livestream and TV worship options will continue.

    Here are the options for worshiping off-site:

    Facebook Streaming

    We live stream our worship on our Facebook page. Tune in on Sundays at 9:00 am to participate live with other members and friends. The video will remain on our Facebook page throughout the week.

    TV – Channel 5 (Mediacom)

    Our worship service is rebroadcast on local public access TV with added announcement, prayer, and song slides at these times:

    • Mondays – 6:30 pm
    • Tuesdays – 4:00 pm
    • Wednesdays – 10:00 am
    • Fridays – 7:00 pm
    • Sundays – 8:00 am (one week behind)
  • Thursday Night Outdoor Worship

    June – August at 6:30 pm.

    We are starting up our Thursday night worship service again. It will be an outdoor service on the patio, weather permitting. Should it rain, we will find a place in the church for the service.

  • Sunday Outdoor Worship

    3rd Sunday of each month at 9 am

    Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and join us out on the grass in front of the patio for our Sunday service. This will give those who are not yet comfortable being inside for worship to be able to be with family and friends. Mark your calendars for the dates of our Outdoor Services:
