Welcome

to in-person worship on Sunday mornings

Masks are encouraged but optional, except...

All adults entering our nursery space must wear masks.

This is to protect our least vaccinated population.

Everywhere else, masks are optional, but encouraged at in-person worship and other indoor church gatherings.

 

Need/want a mask?

No problem. We have plenty, and we keep them close to the entrance.

Before you attend in person

Pause. Do a quick self-check.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days, or if you have symptoms consistent with a contagious illness, please wait to attend in person.

Join us online if you can! We look forward to welcoming you to worship at your next opportunity.

Children from infancy to 2 years old

We offer an optional nursery on the main floor.

Our nursery serves children aged 2 years or younger and their caregivers.

Masks are required for all adults and all volunteers in our nursery.

Parents/caregivers can access the nursery to soothe or care for their child as needed. Volunteer nursery attendants are available to receive and care for children during worship if desired.

All nursery volunteers are required to follow our Safe Church guidelines, which includes mandatory background screening. 

Children 3-8 years old

After a short time in the main worship space (the sanctuary), children are invited to gather at the front for a sung prayer, and to head upstairs for worship activities designed just for their age and stage. New participants and visitors are welcome!

Child Safety
All volunteers agree to comply with our Safe Church guidelines, which include mandatory background screening. 

Food allergies?
A snack is offered during the children’s programme. If you are visiting or attending for the first time, follow your child upstairs and inform our volunteer leaders about any food allergies that impact your child.

The Lord's Supper/Communion

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper at least once per month.

We share the bread and the juice, with a few modifications to limit spread of illness and options to increase the comfort of folk who are taking extra precautions.

It is okay (more than okay) to be present even if you are not interested in receiving the Lord’s Supper or not ready to follow Jesus. Our worship gatherings are open and reflect a wide range of faith commitments, from none (zero) to lifelong Jesus-following.

Wondering about the meaning or purpose of the Lord’s Supper?

If you have any questions about this part of our life together, please contact us.

Feeling vulnerable now that masks are optional?

Feel free to request a mask if you need one, and consider balcony seating if climbing stairs is realistic for you. The balcony typically has only a few people, and lots of space.

If you are struggling with this adjustment, please let us know. We would be glad to offer support and assistance.

Online options

Please consider online opportunities if

  • you are eligible for vaccination, but unvaccinated.
  • you feel that attending worship at this time would be unsafe for you.
  • you have active symptoms of contagious illness.
