Live, Outdoor Service Sunday 9am
This Sunday, we’re excited to offer a simple, live service on our Athletic Field! Because we’re now able to hold outdoor services for more than 100 people, we’ll only offer one on-campus worship experience this weekend.
For those who want to join us on the field, please wear your face mask and bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket. We also recommend bringing a water bottle.
Online services will continue. Scroll down to “Church Online This Weekend” for more details.
