Jesus promised that where two or three are gathered, he will be there. At this time when we are not actually in the same place, we gather in spirit and are assured of God’s presence.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been instructed to practice “physical distancing” as a way to limit the spread of the virus and protect the health of individuals and the community. As church we want to do our part in that and lean into our faith despite the physical distance. While we are not physically together, we reflect on our to continue to be faithful in this time.
As of September, 2020 the Executive Team has decided to continue worshipping virtually until a vaccine is provided to the general public or our Provincial and Judicatory Regulator (Pacific Mountain Region) provides direction that we can gather in larger groups again. Until everyone is able to return, no-one will return.
During this time we will worship on Sundays at 10:30 am (PDT) and we invite you to join us, to pause and give a moment to God and to your community.
We typically join together for singing at 10:20 and we (most regularly) celebrate communion on the 1st Sunday of the month!
