Beginning on Easter Sunday, we will gather weekly outdoors in-person under awnings in the parking lot behind the chapel. Below are FAQs about this outdoor service:
  • What COVID safety protocols will be in place?
    • We will continue to socially distance 6' between households. Adults will mask at all times, except when the service leaders speak/sing into a microphone.​ We encourage humming or quiet singing. Hand sanitizer will be available and we encourage good hygiene habits. Communion servers will wear gloves, and there will be no shared bread or cup. Most of our staff and musicians are partially or fully vaccinated. 
  • What about sunshine and heat?
    • We are installing shade canopies to provide ample sun protection throughout the summer. Bring water and dress comfortably for the weather!​
  • What if it rains?
    • We will announce an inclement weather plan by 12pm Saturday via email, chat, and social media. The Sunday service will move indoors, and we will open limited signups for socially distanced spaces in the Chapel (8 pews/households). Everyone else will worship via Zoom.
  • What if I'm not comfortable coming in person yet?
    • We will continue to Zoom the Sunday service each week. The liturgy will be available via a link in the chat (no more slides!), and an Incarnation pastor will be on Zoom each week​ to welcome, chat, and offer prayer.
  • What about kids?
    • Kids are ALWAYS warmly welcomed, noise and wiggles and all!
    • The nursery will be open for parents whose children need a quiet indoor space, but we will not have any nursery volunteers. 
    • Parents are responsible for their own children at all times and in all places during in-person services.
    • Indoor restrooms are available, but please note that other people may be in the building. Parents should accompany children to the restrooms.
    • We are working to provide children opportunities for wonder before the service; stay tuned!
  • What should I bring?
    • A chair or blanket to sit on.
    • Coffee, water, snacks, or whatever else would make your worship comfortable!
  • Will the building be open?
    • Yes, the chapel, nursery, and restrooms inside will be open and available for use. Masks are required inside the building.
  • What about after-service prayer?
    • After-service prayer teams will be available after the service inside the chapel, maintaining social distance and open doors. 
    • The Zoom Pastor will be available to offer prayer on Zoom each week. 
  • What will happen to Garden Churches?
    • Garden Churches will cease after Easter since we will all be able to gather outdoors together. But who knows; the Garden Church model may serve us well again sometime in the future!
Small groups of 2-10 people meet outdoors to attend the Sunday service together over Zoom, often followed by a meal. We encourage creative gathering places: coffee shops, parks, porches, yards with fire pits. Please note: while we continue to encourage everyone to find creative ways to gather outdoors, Garden Churches will cease after Easter (see above).
We worship live in our Chapel at 11am. Eight pews (1 per household) are available each week, and each of our children's rooms may be used by one family per week. Please note: Chapel worship is paused until Easter; after that, it will only be used as an inclement weather plan (see above).
