9:00 AM Worship is held in our Sanctuary each Sunday. Please follow the protocols we have outlined for the maximum safety of our congregants:

  • Register by calling the church office at 773-4400 Monday through Wednesday, between 9 AM and 3 PM. Only a one-time registration is necessary at this point.

  • Don’t come if you have any symptoms, even if you think it’s just a cold.

  • Keep a minimum of six feet between other people at all times.

  • Wear a mask at all times, making sure it is fully covering your nose and mouth. If you forget your mask, we will provide one for you. These will be located on the table by the Sanctuary entrance.

  • Enter through the red main door, which will be propped open so there is no need to touch the handles.

  • Sanitize your hands as soon as you enter. The dispenser is located on the right side as you enter the Narthex.

  • Pick up a bulletin and a Communion bag on your way into the Sanctuary, and place your offering in the basket on your way in or out.

    • The Communion bags contain either one, two, or three prepackaged wafers and wine cups according to the number in your party. They are prepared with gloved hands for maximum safety.

  • Please go right to your seats and avoid congregating in the Narthex.

  • Fill in the seats farthest from the aisle in whatever row you choose to sit in, and make sure you are at least six feet away from the next closest person. If someone is in the farthest spot in the row in front of you, sit in the middle of the pew instead.

  • There will be no singing. Pastor Kris will continue to speak the words of the hymns above the instrumental music.

  • Peace will be shared by hand signal only.

  • Communion will be taken at your seats as directed during the service. Place the wrapper and empty cup back in the bag for disposal following the service.

  • When the service is over, please do not congregate. The back pews will empty first to maintain distancing.

  • Please exit through the bell tower door, which will be propped open.

10:30 AM Worship is held on Zoom each Sunday. Holy Communion will continue to be practiced at this service, and you can participate by bringing your own bread and wine or grape juice.


You can also call in by dialing 1-929-205-6099 and use the meeting ID 859 0391 1732 and password 346738298. If you don't make it to the service, the recordings are posted on YouTube for you to watch.
