In-Person Pre-registration Lifted

Hello friends of Faith,

Beginning this Sunday, October 24, you will no longer need to pre-register online to attend Sunday worship services.

If you would like to attend in-person on Sunday morning at 10am we hope you can arrive a little bit early to complete a short COVID self-assessment screening and register your name and phone number info for contact tracing purposes. We will still require you to wear your mask and observe physical distances while in the building.

We will continue to livestream services which you can access at Online Services.

The encouraging signs in the local community indicate we are slowly moving into a post-pandemic reality, and our church life can hopefully realize more in-person interactions moving forward.

Everyone is in a different place and comfort level with re-engaging in-person meetings. With this move the council nevertheless wants to assure you that we continue to provide a safe space and experience for worship.

Welcome to worship!

“Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them.” – Jesus Christ (Matthew 18:20)
