We are pausing in-person worship for the last four Sundays in January 2022 and will return to in-person worship on February 6. We will worship at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Services will be streamed on Zoom and Facebook. If you miss us live on Sunday morning you can watch services archived on our Facebook page at any time.
COVID policies, updated August 4:
- In accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC and Monroe County Department of Health, masks are required for all people while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. We will return to our previous policy as soon as our area is back below the CDC's threshold for "substantial or high transmission."
- Please only attend if you feel healthy. We ask that you stay home if you've experienced any symptoms of illness.
- We strongly encourage all eligible people to get vaccinated—and to get their booster after six months!
Changes from previous policies:
- We have temporarily reinstated universal masking indoors, per CDC/MCDOH guidance.
- We no longer have separate seating sections or chair pods in our sanctuary. There is plenty of space available for people who need to (or prefer to) practice social distancing, even with the chairs close together.
- Advance registration is no longer required.
Children's ministry will be offered for children in Pre-K through 5th grade. Nursery drop-off care is available for kids aged 1–4. Children will be checked into their classes upon arrival, stay in family groups, and remain for the entire service. Contact Jessie or see our Children's programming page for more info.
All children's ministry staff and volunteers are fully vaccinated and federally background checked.

Our worship gatherings last about 90 minutes and blend modern content into an ancient, four-fold liturgical pattern: Gathering – Word – Table – Sending Forth.
Here are some of the elements you might experience in one of our gatherings: scripture read aloud, a creed recited together, meditative prayer, confessional prayer, congregational prayer, old hymns and new worship songs arranged by one of our bands in a variety of modern musical styles, silence, noise, art, and more.
Each service includes an engaging teaching on a scripture text or topic, followed by the sacrament of Communion—open to all those who seek to follow Jesus.
During the sermon, we offer wonderful age-appropriate ministry for children ages 0–9. Parents and caregivers are always welcome to keep their children with them in our sanctuary for the entire service if they prefer.
