We will be returning to worship in the sanctuary on October 11th at 10:00 for the First Congregational Meeting with masks and social distancing.  Dependent upon COVID-19 cases in our community, worship is subject to change.  Please sign up for our newsletter emails to be notified of any changes as we approach this date or follow us on Facebook.  If you think you have been exposed to someone that has COVID-19, please stay home and enjoy worship online.    

We are currently offering worship each Sunday via YouTube.  We plan to begin Sunday School back on November 1st at 9:00 with a few changes; please see the bulletin for additional information.  

Thank you for your patience.

  • Back to Sunday School Transition

    We will begin a transition back to Sunday School beginning on Sunday, November 1st. All attendees are asked to continue to follow recommendations for wearing masks and social distancing. All adult Sunday School classes will be held in their normal classrooms, except for the Faithful Servants who will meet in the Fellowship Hall to allow for social distancing. With limited teachers for the elementary school ages, we will be grouping ages 2 through first graders. They will meet in the classrooms previously for 2s and 3s and 3rd-5th (beside the PICs room) with dividers opened. Second through fifth graders will be grouped and meet in the Council Room (beside the Bridal Room) in the Family Life Center. Sixth through twelfth graders will be in their normal classroom. If you are interested in teaching any class from 2s and 3s to the 6th-12th graders, please Lorianne Riggin or Julie Dennis know. We will need additional teachers for the kids and youth as the months progress and we are able to return back to our normal Sunday School rooms and age groups. Please be patient as we may have to adapt locations and age groupings if the number of attendees back to Sunday School increases, but the decision made for the current age groupings was based on the feedback provided by the surveys and discussions with all the past Sunday School teachers. Thank you!
