In-Person Worship Resumes May 23rd
Sundays | From May 23rd | 10:00 am | Sanctuary

We are delighted to finally be able to report that we are planning a return to in-person worship and education classes on Pentecost Sunday! There are still a number of details to be worked out as to how to most safely achieve this, but stay tuned for further updates in the coming weeks. We look forward to welcoming you back to in-person services! If you have been enjoying our broadcasts on Facebook don’t fret as we will also be livestreaming our in-person services every week going forward for those that need to watch from farther afield or from home. We would like to thank you all for your patience during this time, and for the remarkable way that you have embraced our switch to online worship during this very challenging past year.

Kid’s Cove Challenge
2nd Sundays  |  In your own time

In a departure from our monthly Kid’s Cove FBI event we will be offering the ‘Kid’s Cove Challenge’ in its place. Our monthly challenges will are based on the Bible verses that we learn from Ms. Nancy during Messy Sundays (4th Sundays). We are challenging each child/family to complete a task at home, or near home, and share a picture of it on our Facebook page.

Messy Sunday
4th Sundays  |  11:30 am  |  Church Courtyard
Our in-person on the fourth Sundays continue! Reading, planting seeds, art projects and community service are just some of the activities we have in store. The fun happens outside and lasts 45 mins-1 hour. Children and families that participate will need to wear masks and practice social distancing. Parents are free to drop off their kids and get a coffee in the Circle, etc. as they wish. Contact Violet Fenton for more information: 714 538 2341 x.112
