If not vaccinated, or if you prefer to maintain greater social distancing, you may use the adjacent Fellowship Hall which is equipped with an effective audio system. Bibles and Hymnals are available there as well. The use of masks is strongly suggested in the Fellowship Hall. We wish everyone to feel comfortable and welcome while practicing familiar safety protocols.
