About Required Reservations

Safety remains a top priority for you and our community as we resume services. Physical distancing limits our capacity, and therefore advance reservations are required for all services. There is outdoor Children's Church for age 4 through 3rd grade during the 9:30 a.m. service. In-person Nursery and Sunday School are not currently offered due to COVID-19 restrictions, but see current activities for children, youth, and adults.
