READ, LISTEN, WATCH
Check out the video above to watch our livestream on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.!
Our in-person services on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. include live singing, a sermon, communion, and other familiar parts of the order of worship.
Our COVID-19 protocols are based on recommendations from the CDC, the Bishop, and the Virginia Conference. Here are the current COVID-19 practices:
- If you experience symptoms, please test. If you test positive, please email Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Masks are optional for everyone but are strongly recommended for people 2 years old and older who are not fully vaccinated. Adult Sunday School classes will make their own decisions about masking.
- Masks are recommended for everyone volunteering at the Mission Center. Mission Center volunteers are strongly recommended to test before returning to the mission center after traveling out of town.
- Masks are strongly recommended for everyone visiting the first floor of the church during the week for the safety of the children and staff in the Weekday Children’s Programs.
- As we enter flu season, if you do not feel well, please stay home to protect the health of everyone.
We hope you will join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. If you prefer, join us for the live-stream on Facebook and the website at 10:30 a.m. We will continue this schedule through the summer, making adjustments as necessary.
WORSHIP FOR ALL AGES
During our worship services, we have children’s moments when children can come up front to hear a special word from God geared for little ears and hearts.
We also believe God put the wiggles in children, so don’t feel you have to suppress them when in God’s house. However, the following options are available for your convenience:
- Rocking chairs are available outside the sanctuary. There are also a small selection of toys for our littlest friends available in a cabinet in the atrium; see one of our greeters if you need help finding them.
- Worship bags: Even the most creative and interesting worship experience can be a long time for children. Worship bags are available just outside the sanctuary for children to use during worship. The bags include coloring pages, small toys and games, and no-mess crafts. Please remove used pages and return the bags so they will be available for the next Sunday.
- Nursery Care: To allow parents with children too young for worship to still attend church and Sunday School, care is available for infants and toddlers in Room 207 starting at 9 a.m. Make sure to leave time to sign in your child before you head to worship or class!
CURRENT WORSHIP SERIES: Confident in Self-Despair: The Good News for Scoundrels, Hot Messes, and Dumpster Fire Families
Jacob seems to be anything but a model disciple. He’s a trickster, liar, and selfishly ambitious man who fathers children with four women and leads a dysfunctional family rife with jealousy and backstabbing. But Jacob is also Israel, the namesake of the Old Testament community of God, chosen and blessed. As such, this sinner-saint, who limps along with the Lord, burdened by weakness and beset by problems, is the mirror image of all of us who follow Jesus. In his life we see our lives, our struggles, our failures, and most especially the God who loves us and chooses us as his own. As we explore his bio, from his wrangling in the womb with Esau to his death as an old man in Egypt, we will learn more about ourselves and the God who is with us and for us in Jesus the Messiah.
