How do I register for the in person portion of the worship gathering?
You must register in order to attend the in person gatherings. (If you have any symptoms listed by the CDC here (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html) you are asked to stay home and join us online for worship.)

You may only register for a worship gathering for that particular week.
How will seating be prepared for those who registered?
Seating will be prepared and pre-set before the worship gathering and clearly marked with your registration name. Upon entering the fellowship hall, please locate your seat(s) and go directly to your seating area. Ushers and greeters will be available to help you locate your seat(s) if you need assistance.
Once you are in your seated area, we ask that you stay in your assigned space unless you need to step outside or use the restrooms. If you have children with you, please help your children stay in your designated seating area.
At the conclusion of the worship gathering you will be dismissed by sections. Please do not congregate in the sanctuary or fellowship hall. Please follow the arrows and exit the building at the designated exit door.
