*Continuing to follow guidelines and to do our part, we want to once again make everyone aware that masks are required in all areas of the buildings on campus.  This is a simple step we can all take in honoring and loving others well.
We so appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Will you clean between services?
Yes, each service will only be 50 minutes long to allow us to clear and clean the building between each service.

But, I am excited to see my friends at church again!  Can I visit in the lobby after service? 
We know we all miss seeing our friends at church but right now it is so important for us to be able to clean the building between each service.  Therefore, we ask that you quickly exit the building after the service concludes.  Wave to your friend in the parking lot!

We really miss you and want to see you but please stay home if you are you currently sick with any of the following symptoms:
Fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath OR if you have had contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
Please let us know what’s going on so we can pray for you!
