In-person worship resumes June 6, 2021! Please pre-register.

Our first return to the church building in person for worship is planned for Sunday June 6, 2021. The service will also be live-streamed (see below) and available on our YouTube channel later. See more here about our re-opening plan and safety protocols and register here to attend in person..

We continue to learn and experiment with online worship, and a return to include in-person worship, and we are grateful to worship with you wherever you are! As we seek to care for the shalom of our city and county, know that God is at work in all things. May we each be wise, compassionate, and discerning as we care for one another. Philippians 4:4-6
