OUTDOOR "Drive-In" WORSHIP SERVICES!

East/kitchen-side Parking Lot

Saturdays 6:00 p.m.

Sundays 9:00 a.m.

 (Through September)

You will be provided with a radio station to turn to in order to listen to the service in your car.  Please stay in your car.  If you get out of your car, you must wear a mask.  Members not in a car should follow CDC guidelines for wearing protective gear and social distancing.  If you do not follow these guidelines, you will be asked to leave.

 You will have the option to receive Holy Communion.  If you do not feel comfortable, you may receive the blessing from afar and trust in God's presence with you.  Masked and gloved members will prepare the elements, following guidelines to make it as safe as possible.  Pastor will be masked and gloved while distributing the elements.  Holy communion distribution will take place at the end of the worship service.  Please drive through the carport to receive the elements and then continue on in peace.

 Our plan is to hold these outdoor services through July and will update the congregation on this website, Facebook, and other means about our August plans as more information about suggested activities and gathering together becomes available to the Congregation Council. 

107.1 is the FM station to tune to on your radio

 Please try as much as possible to safely combine people in vehicles (for example, if there are family members, friends or neighbors who have been around each other, perhaps take one vehicle instead of a few. Please wear masks). If we cannot fit everyone in the main parking lot on Sunday morning, Pastor will repeat the service at 10:00 am. (Please be patient as we figure this out, since we don’t know how many people will attend). There will be a hand-held radio available if people want to sit on the benches by the sign. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE PARKING LOT BY THE OFFICES. THE SIGNAL DOES NOT REACH THERE. You CAN park in the spots behind the gym (nearest the benches and sign), as well as the spots to the East of the Lampost in the side parking lot outside the sanctuary (the Stockton’s blue house will be on your right/back). (If you exit the main parking lot and turn left, there are about four spots there that people could use).  

 Bulletins will be handed out to those who need them. We will also make the bulletin available in an e-mail so that people can print it off before they arrive and bring a hard copy with or use their electronic device to look at it. There will be music with printed words available, either in the bulletin or on a seperate sheet. 

 After the blessing, at the conclusion of worship, the cars parked closest to the carport (facing the church) will go first through the carport to receive communion and leave.  A Council Member/Members will direct traffic, so please go through the carport when indicated. Holy Communion will be available. If you feel comfortable receiving Communion, please take the prepared elements (in a disposable cup) from the tray. (In order to avoid cross-contamination from gloves, we will not be passing out the elements).There will also be an offering plate available under the carport as you drive through for Communion. 

 Blessings as we gather together for worship! Even though we are still being careful to avoid transmitting COVID-19, we are able to worship together but apart in our cars.We remember that the church is not closed but, as always, has been sent out into the world to love and serve the Lord (and our neighbors). 

Thank you for all you do and for your continued work in the body of Christ. Peace be with you.
