Latest updates

In light of the current pandemic situation, and the high priority we place on the health and safety of our congregation and community, we have temporarily changed many of the ways in which we operate. However, we assure you that despite these changes our church is not closed and that we are continuing to offer ministry that provides a sense of hope, peace, and stability in the midst of this uncertainty and fear. Below are some of the most current ways we are adjusting our ministries for the time being. To stay connected and updated on more detailed church happenings, visit our This-Week page. Also, please remember that Online-Giving opportunities are always available.

Every Sunday, we share live-streamed worship services through our YouTube channel. These services can be watched live at 9:30am or replayed anytime after for your convenience.

Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, prayer, reflection, serving, Bible study, and generous giving - leading to a deep and joyful celebration of Jesus' resurrection and ultimate victory over sin and death at Easter. Every Wednesday during Lent we will offer two worship services. The first service, at 6pm, will be virtual and live-streamed through our YouTube channel (it can be watched live or replayed anytime after). The second service, at 7pm, will be in-person and indoors. Below you will find links to both the indoor worship preregistration and the online worship live-stream (as it becomes available).

Every Thursday, we will offer a prayer and Holy Communion service for groups of 10 or less in the Worship Center. Please note that preregistration is required. These brief services are especially designed for those who have had limited opportunity to join us for online worship, as well as anyone wishing to spend some safe time in our Clarkston Campus. Of course, face coverings and social distancing will be practiced by all. Safe self-serve Communion will be available or you are welcome to bring your own. The sign up link can be found below, please contact us if you have any questions.

In-Person Worship Resumed


We have decided to go forward with a phased-in return to in-person worship and ministry. We based this decision on Covid numbers and trends in our area, and our hope that more and more will be able to receive the vaccine soon. While we, of course, cannot guarantee anyone's safety, we know that we can minimize the risk as we continue to observe the necessary safety protocols we have implemented. We assure you that as we return to offering more in person worship and groups, we will continue to have a strong online ministry presence as well. The link to a letter written by Senior Pastor Jonathan Heierman can be found below that describes all of this in much more detail.


Pastoral Letter & Updated Schedule





Pastoral Care


We want to assure you that despite everything that is going on, our pastors remain available for our community. Whether you have an emergency, are in need of counseling, or something else altogether, your needs remain our highest priority. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for pastoral care of any sort during these challenging times. You can also send us Prayer Requests if you find that is helpful in any way.
