In Person Worship Suspended - November 11,2020
In response to the Governor’s order and guidelines, we are suspending in-person worship for the congregation immediately. While churches are not required to follow state guidelines, it has been the policy of the Kirk to use them as our guides for safe practices. When the state government changes its guidance, our Safe Gathering Task Force reviews it and makes recommendations based on science and safety. The only people gathering for in-person worship are those who are in worship and musical leadership. What you may not see in virtual worship are the safe practices put in place to protect all who gather. For example, you may see handbells play but then they leave the Sanctuary. We look forward to the day when we can re-open for in personal worship. In the meantime, please continue to join us for live-streaming on Sunday mornings.
