May the Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ center you and encourage you this day.  


Our Home Safe Team continuously works together to think of creative ways we can gather safely. We take into account guidelines from the CDC, Bishop Easterling, and Governor Hogan so that we can do our best to minimize the impact of COVID-19. Despite these precautions and limitations, we are still the church! We are thankful for the creative ways we have found to allow us to continue worship, discipleship, and mission. We are having gatherings outside and we ask for your cooperation in following guidelines every time you are at the church. We continue to refrain from all indoor worship, small groups, meetings, preschool programming, and indoor gatherings.  We own this action as our responsibility to help minimize the impact of COVID-19. Please explore here for ways to connect virtually. See below for in-person guidelines we must all follow.

Safe Community Guidelines

  1. Before coming to church, please take your temperature at home.  If it is registering out of your normal range, please stay home.  If you have fever, feel ill or feel you are at high risk for COVID-19, please stay home and worship with us online.

  2. Please wear a mask from the moment you leave your car until you return to your car. This applies to everyone above age 3.

  3.  Please maintain 6 feet of physical distance from all those that do not live in your home.

  4. Please refrain from all physical contact including handshakes, hugs, etc.  Air hugs are great!

  5. Please wash your hands with soap and water or utilize hand sanitizer every time you enter the building.  

  6. Please ensure that children 5th grade and younger are always accompanied by an adult who is mindful of their physical distancing and hand/face hygiene.

  7. If you need to come inside, only one person (or family) in each bathroom or elevator at one time.

  8. To facilitate social distancing, please park in the open parking spaces (every other space is closed).

We know that each family has developed their own guidelines for their family based on their needs.  While on our property, we appreciate everyone’s cooperation following these precautions to keep our community safe.  Please know these guidelines may be stricter than mandated.  Our priority is your health. We love you and stay safe!
