New guidelines for in-person worship and events.

Starting Sunday August 8, masks are again required for the 10am in person Sunday Service They remain optional for the 8:30 outdoor service for those who are fully vaccinated 14 days prior to the event. We request that people who are not fully vaccinated (including children under 12) continue to wear masks at all church events. We will continue to maintain social distancing during indoor events including in-person worship. We have resumed Coffee Hour (outdoors) following worship, and we continue to practice quiet congregational singing.

Summer Outdoor Worship!

Now continuing beyond Labor Day we offer a second service at 8:30am at the pond just a bit up the road to Haystack Mountain.
