Thursday Worship Experience
Not being able to gather for church has been a challenge! We are excited to safely take steps toward reopening by offering an indoor Thursday-night worship experience with COVID-19 protocols in place.
We believe this worship experience will help us gather safely and learn how to best serve our congregation as we begin to meet inside our buildings.
We invite you to participate in our in-person worship experiences by registering below! Thank you for your grace in this process and please be praying for God's protection and presence as we meet together.
We have a limited number of seats available, so if you’re interested in attending and participating in the recording, register for your date of choice below.
If the service you’re interested in attending is currently full, check back in the 48 hours leading up to the recording date, as cancellations are processed daily. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Additional Thursday night live recordings will be added here as they are scheduled. Please continue to check back if you'd like to attend these on an ongoing basis.

Yes, you can pick where you sit in the auditorium from the open seating choices. We have every-other-row roped off and ask that you follow socially-distancing rules by leaving 3-4 seats between each group, but other than that, you can choose to sit in your favorite section or part of the room.
Are food and drinks allowed?
Please do not bring any food or drinks with you per Covid safety protocols. Similarly, neither Harvest or The Cafe will be open at this time.
