About In-Person Worship:

We have In-Person Worship Services, Outdoor Services once a month, and Online Worship options. Here's what they look like:

*Note: Guidelines may be subject to change as needed or as NJ State Requirements change. 

It's Okay To Stay Online:

Not everyone is ready or able to participate in in-person worship, and that's okay. The services are broadcasted on Facebook and YouTube on Sundays at 9:30am ET for those worshiping from home or remotely.

Masks Optional:

The State of NJ no longer requires masks or distancing for indoor worship services. You may wear a mask if you are more comfortable doing so. Click here to learn more about NJ's COVID guidelines for churches.

Nursery:

Children are divided into groups for ages 0-1, ages 2-3, and age 4. 

For our children's ministries, masks will be optional and we will continue to maintain our other safety measures, including air purifying and social distancing. We will support the desires of the parents. If you or your children are showing any symptoms or feeling ill, please remain at home and worship with us through our livestream.

Nursery will not be offered for Outdoor Worship Services

Entrance and Exit:

Please enter and exit through the white doors facing the street. There is an elevator on the side of the building if you need a more accessible entry.

Offerings:

We do not have a offertory time during the service. You can give online or place donations in marked slots in the Connection Center counter.

In the Pews:

Bulletins will be laid out on the seats and pews in advance. Song books and Bibles are in the pews if you would like to follow along with them.

Song Lyrics:

You can follow along with song lyrics on the screen or in the hymnals/song booklet. There are also some large-print copies of lyrics in the back of church for those who need them.

About Online Worship:

You can worship with us online through Facebook or YouTube. Worship Services are livestreamed on Sundays at 9:30am ET and can be watched any time after that. If you are worshiping online, you can follow along with a service order posted on our Worship At Home page.

About Outdoor Worship:

Outdoor Worship Service Dates:

August 1 | September 5

Seating on the Hill:

Outdoor Services will take place in our back parking lot with seating on the hill behind church. Please bring beach chairs, towels, or blankets to sit on. There are trees along the top of the hill if you need a shadier place to sit.

Song Lyrics:

There will be bulletins with the lyrics printed available. You can also follow along on your smart devices with an online bulletin found on the Worship At Home page.

 

No Nursery or Sunday School:

Nursery and Sunday School will not be available during Outdoor Worship Services.

Moving Indoors for Bad Weather:

In the event of rain or bad weather, we will move the services indoors. Click here for a local weather forecast.

Watching Online:

Outdoor Services will be livestreamed to our Facebook page. The video will be uploaded to our YouTube channel later on.

As Proverbs 16:9 says, "We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps." (NLT). What we've outlined is a step in the process of reopening in-person gatherings. Let's not forget God's faithfulness which helped us meet together in different ways for the past year and a half. Let's trust that the Holy Spirit has been with us this whole time and will guide us in our plans moving forward.
