  • Appreciate worship that engages the mind and touches the heart
  • Seek to find purpose in life and use their God given gifts
  • Yearn for lasting relationships in genuine Christian community

    “Worship in the Grove” Sunday 10:30am

    May 31, 2020 Bulletin pdf DOWNLOAD HERE
    In case of rain the service is cancelled.  There is no indoor alternative option at this time.  
    You are invited to celebrate worship with us either of two ways, as you feel most comfortable:

    1. Drive-in and stay in your vehicle.  If so, please park along the edge of the circle drive and turn your vehicle sharply to “nose in” perpendicular to the curb, toward the center of the grove, leaving space between vehicles. 
    2. Sit in the grove.  If so, please park in the west (Activity Building) or East (Sanctuary) parking lots, not along the curve.  Bring chairs or a blanket and come to the grove, leaving good space (10’-12’) between other family groups.  We request those sitting in the grove to please wear a mask or other face covering until further notice.
    • Electronic version of bulletins will be available here on the website, and paper copies available on site.
    • Offering boxes will be stationed where you may drop in your offering before, during or after the service.
    • Please maintain social distancing between family groups.  “Share the peace” at a distance in new ways. 
    • In order to avoid overlapping use of small spaces the building and bathrooms will be off limits until further notice.  Please prepare accordingly.
