The Lord's Supper is offered at one in-person service per weekend, taking care to reduce the chance of spreading any germs, including the novel coronavirus: 1st and 3rd Saturday at 5 pm and 2nd and 4th Sunday at 9 am, and in both services is there is a 5th Sunday in the month.

The liturgy and the words to the songs and hymns are visible on-screen during the service. We encourage you to join with us in prayer and song.

May the Lord richly bless you, and keep you safe in His care, through this pandemic, and to life eternal.
