Worship Service for Sunday, October 25, 2020

Worship Playlist

Our policy for preschool workers does not require the wearing of face masks. Regular inquiries are made of all workers as to their health and any recent illnesses, and temperatures are taken regularly.

Sunday school is available at 9:30 AM for children of all ages. Some classes may be combined at first, depending on how many children attend in-person. We will add more classes as people slowly return. 

We offer childcare for 0-3 years during the 11:00 worship service. Check in at the Preschool Office in the Education Building. The entrance is at the center of our campus if you are coming from the main parking lot. If your child has already been checked in for Sunday school, there is no need to re-check them in prior to the worship service.

Fourth and fifth Sundays of each month are "Parenting in the Pew" Sundays, where preschoolers participate in the worship service with the whole family.

Our nursing/cry room is available if you need to feed, rock, or soothe your baby (newborn-eighteen months) while watching a live feed of the service. If your children need a little more wiggle room, we also stream the service to a screen in the Sanctuary foyer. We will have children's activity bags for each service, but feel free to bring something extra for them to do.

  • The building has been deep cleaned and sanitized by DIS.IN.FX.
  • Between services, the pews, bathrooms, lobby area, and door handles will be sanitized. 

Honoring Others
We know it's exciting to see one another and want to hug and shake hands. However, during this time, we encourage you to honor 6’ of social distancing.
  • Please try not to make physical contact with anyone except your immediate family members of your household.
  • We ask families to sit on every other pew as marked, with six feet between families.
  • We ask that you wear a mask to and from your seat. Also, our greeters will be wearing masks for your safety.
  • We strongly encourage the at-risk population to continue to attend online/remotely.
  • If you are symptomatic, or if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the last two weeks, please attend online.
  • Once you are allowed to enter the building, we ask that you not congregate in the foyer or Sanctuary aisles. Please go straight to the Sanctuary, and find a seat. After you are seated, feel free to wave and talk from your seat to those who are around you. We encourage you to take a moment to pray for God to prepare your heart for worship and for God to bless the service with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Small Groups
Three of our adult small groups have resumed meeting on campus Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM. Others are continuing to meet virtually or throughout the week. Sunday school small groups are also available for newborns through 12th graders at 9:30 AM. Some classes may need to combine at first, depending on how many attend in-person. We plan to add more on-campus classes as people slowly return. If you would like a recommendation on where to begin with small groups, please contact Pastor Jared Walley at

Responding to the Spirit
Due to social distancing, we will not be able to have people come forward for response time. However, if someone needs to talk after the service, we will do so with social distancing in another room. 

  • When the service is over, Pastor Brad will be dismissing you by sections to prevent large groups in the aisles. If you need to speak with a pastor after the service, you may remain in your pew until everyone is dismissed, and someone will come over to speak with you.
  • As you enter and exit the Sanctuary, you will be able to drop any offering into the grey boxes at the rear of the Sanctuary.
  • At the end of the services, the cleaning team will need to begin sanitizing the building. Thank you in advance for exiting the building as soon as possible.

At the moment, there are no plans for any on-campus, weekly Wednesday night activities for June.

Sermon Video/Audio

Sermon Online
We will continue to share a sermon video with announcements to this webpage at 10:45 each Sunday, as well as to our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.

No computer or smart phone?
If you do have a computer and/or smart phone but don't know how to access the sermons or other resources, please contact your small group leader or the church office for some help walking you through a few simple steps. We plan to provide a limited number of DVDs for those who don't have a computer or smart phone. Let your small group leader know you would like a DVD, and they can provide the office with a list of requests. We will notify leaders when they are available, and leaders can pick them up and help deliver them to homes.


In addition to Pastor Brad's sermons, the following are available to you:

Bible Study Videos
RightNow Media is the "Netflix" of Bible study videos. Our church pays for a subscription to this service and makes it available for free to all members.
