We have several methods of communication that are available to our congregation and community. 


Now that we are entering Phase 2 we welcome all for Worship in person this Sunday at 8:30, 9:00, and 11:00am. If you join us in person, please be aware that church will look a little different. Sunday school classes will not meet and we will not offer nursery services. We welcome you with warm hearts, but this time we will be without warm coffee and donuts. We will not serve communion this Sunday as we are still working on plans for the best and safest method for communion during these times. We encourage you to wear masks and to keep a safe distance between non-family members. If you have had a fever, cough, or contact with anyone with Covid-19, please worship from home. We trust you to make good choices for the physical and spiritual health of your family, and we look forward to worshipping with you in a variety of ways this Sunday. There are several ways you can participate from home. 

1. Listen to our Radio broadcast on KMLB 540AM at 8:30am. 

2. Watch our Contemporary Service at 9am on Facebook Live and our website. 

3. Watch our Tradition Service at 11am on Facebook Live, our website, and on KNOE channel 8!
