Join us outside for a continuation of our outdoor blended worship on the front lawn. This informal service set in God’s creation provides a beautiful and safe space for us to worship. Music will be led by our praise team leader, Hank Weddington and Deacon Shannon. As always, this service will be live-streamed on Facebook.


Yes, you read correctly. Beginning this coming Sunday, October 4th, we will worship in the sanctuary for the first time since March. The congregation size will be limited to 50 people and will need to follow the guidelines set out below. This service will be traditional in nature with both organ and piano. You will need to sign up to reserve a spot by either going online or calling the church office. If spaces are full for the coming Sunday, you will be put on the list for the next Sunday. This service will also be live-streamed on Facebook.


*Please know that this is a trial period. If folks do not abide by the guidelines or if there are proven COVID transmissions due to our time together, the indoor service will have to be discontinued. In other words, this  opportunity to gather depends a great deal on our faithful adherence to the protocols set out. We all want to be together but must do so in a way that follows our first General Rule as Methodists – Do No Harm.

 Masks are required! Masks must be worn at all times while in the building. No exceptions will be made. They also must be worn correctly, which means they must cover both the mouth and the nose at the same time. If you are unable to wear a mask due to health issues or are in a vulnerable demographic, you are asked to watch the service online. This is for the health and safety of all and shows our Christian love to our siblings in Christ. Part of the Gospel mandate is to care for our neighbor, and we care for our neighbor in worship by protecting them from ourselves, in the event that we are carrying the virus unknowingly.
