Worship in January: In light of the high rate of transmission of the Omicron variant and with guidance from Northwest Synod leaders, we will be modifying our worship schedule in January. We will continue to have in person worship on Sunday mornings, but there will be no Saturday evening service. Additionally, we will suspend the coffee fellowship after the Sunday morning service for the month. Full vaccination and masks are required to attend in person worship. The drive-in option is available for those who are not feeling well or are not fully vaccinated. We ask at this time that you please not enter the building if you are experiencing any cold or flu like symptoms.
