All are welcome. If you feel more comfortable, you are certainly welcome to wear a mask but we are no longer requiring them to be worn. We have started using the chalice again for communion. If you are leary of using a common cup, it is completely acceptable to commune only taking the bread, but I encourage you to read this explanation of the safety of receiving communion with the chalice.

We invite you to stay and enjoy coffee, tea and conversation after the service. In inclement weather there is space at the back of the church, but with warm weather we encourage people to gather outside the church doors.

Bible Studies and Discussion Groups

An Online Advent Bible Study will be offered on December 7th and 14th at 7:30 pm.
