All of life is worship. We live in God's presence twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Whatever we do to bring Him honor and glory, we do as an act of worship.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (1 Cor 10:31)
Yet we also gather for Sunday morning worship in order to deliberately take time to delight in His person and His work - together. A significant part of the reason we gather on Sunday mornings is to encourage each other as we worship our God together.
We begin the week with Him and with each other - as a way to acknowledge He is at the center of our lives.
We gather every Sunday at 10am (in person and Live-Stream)
Our Worship Service Plans
We continue with live, in-person services and live-stream again on Sunday mornings. Yet, we will do so with caution and care, following updated CDC protocol guidelines and wisdom.
St. Louis County rescinded its county-wide mask mandate earlier this month. This decision reflects improving conditions regarding COVID which we are grateful for. Over the past year we've tried to follow the county health orders, policies and guidelines in a spirit of love for neighbor and those most vulnerable. We are happy to report that God has kept those in our church relatively healthy and safe.
Like the County, we are no longer mandating masks as part of our health and safety protocols at church though many may consider still wearing a mask. We still encourage distancing in conversations and respecting the comfort level of your neighbor. Each of you have unique circumstances that you need to consider as you determine what might be best because the virus has not disappeared; it is still among us and still does represent a very real health risk. No matter what each of us decide is best, we should commit ourselves to treating each other with grace, love and kindness.
These changes represent an incremental step toward normalcy. We will continue to assess the risks of being in closer contact with one another as the summer approaches and our in person activities ramp back up. We are excited about coming back together yet at the same time cautious. We continue to commit ourselves to prayer and solicit your prayers for our community and neighbors.
This is has been trying and perplexing season. Though we are optimistic about the days ahead, we are also careful to steward this opportunity. If you have questions, ideas, or even concerns, please feel free to reach out to any one of our elders.

Let's all keep praying for, and seeking intentional ways, to help those impacted by the virus or by the safety measures imposed to stop its spread. We think especially of those who will become ill, lose out on needed income, or who work in hospitals or as first responders. If you find yourself in need, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the staff and elders.
