We believe God loves all, including our LGBTQ+ family.
We are part of God’s Beloved Community and are doing our own work to put an end to systemic racism.

Holy Communion will be administered at the altar rail and at the base of the chancel steps. People may receive the wine by intinction. We ask those receiving at the altar rail to distance themselves.
The offering plates will be passed through the pews. And the offering, both offering collection and the elements for Holy Eucharist, will be processed to the altar rail to the acolyte.
The Gospel Procession will be into the middle of the aisle, once again, connecting the importance of Jesus coming into our midst.
Lemonade Hour, cookouts, and other eating events have reconvened inside and outside of the building.
