Dear Church Family, As the weather changes, so will our Sunday worship services. Currently, our 9am
contemporary service meets outside while our 11am traditional service meets in the
sanctuary. Starting on Sunday, November 29th , the following changes will take effect.
For the 9am Contemporary service:
The service will be in the sanctuary and livestreamed online;
Reservations are required to enter;
Reservations must be made for each service by calling the office starting the Monday
before. We will begin taking reservations on Monday, November 23rd for the 29th .
The church office number is (856)881-3295 and is open from 9am-2pm Mon-Fri.;
Masks are required to be worn throughout the service;
Social distancing is required as well;
Ushers will seat and dismiss you;
Socialize outside, not in the narthex/lobby;
Only the sanctuary and the restrooms will be open for use.
For the 11am Traditional service:
The 11am service will be closed to live attendance and streamed live online;
You’ll be able to worship on Zoom as well as Facebook Live (instructions to follow).
The Church Council and I believe these temporary changes will have the least impact on
our Sunday worship experience as winter approaches. Our 9am worshipers will not have to
endure the cold while our 11am folks can continue worshipping as they already do. Since
we reopened our 11am service in July, an overwhelming majority of our regular 11am
worshipers have not returned to in-person worship for a variety of valid reasons. Given the
time and cost involved with cleaning between services each week, we thought this was the
most logical solution.
This has been a long year and our church has been strained and stretched by all the
changes we’ve had to make. Yet, we have shown great resilience, patience, and faith as we
adapted how we do church while continuing to be church. This holiday season is going to
be different for all of us. We will continue to worship God, grow in Christ, and follow the
Holy Spirit as God leads us into the new year. I have every confidence that God will bless us
as we remain committed to Christ and the mission he has given us.
Until we are together again, let us “rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all
circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” -1 st Thessalonians 5:16-18
Yours in Christ,
