Protocols are in place for safety of our in-person guests.  This includes limited seating in the main sanctuary and additional seating in two overflow areas of the church where worship will be broadcast.  Social distancing is recommended and pews will be marked off for seating in every other pew.  Hand Sanitizer stations are located at all entrances and throughout the building.  Masks are requested for those who have not been vaccinated and anyone who wishes to have added protection.  We look forward to seeing you at the Celebration whether it is in-person or online!
