What's Happening and Where
Updated for the week of 5/1/2021
In-Person Worship has Resumed
We will begin to worship in-person OUTSIDE at the Grove on Sunday, April 18th @ 10:30 am AND we get to sing! We also get to join in responsive readings and praying aloud the Lords’ Prayer as one vocal community. Thanks be to God!
We will follow safety protocols of 12 feet physical distance between family units. We ask that you follow the directions of the volunteers as to where to sit when you arrive at the Grove.
You must wear a mask while on church property.
Remember to stay home if we feel sick so as to not spread this virus.
You will need to bring your chair and bulletin (either printed or on your phone). A limited number of copies will be made available.
You DO NOT need to bring communion elements. We will provide a prepackaged communion set for you upon arrival at worship.
This service will be live-streamed for all of those unable to attend in person.
Dress appropriately for a cool morning and a warm sun.
If there is rain in the forecast or starting that morning, in-person attendance is cancelled, and worship leadership will live-stream the worship service in the sanctuary. We will update the congregation about the cancellation on the website, the church voicemail, and on Facebook.
For more details, please see the April Newsletter.
Reporting a COVID positive test: If you have attended worship in the Grove and have subsequently tested positive for COVID-19, please contact Pastor Jennifer (512-626-8238).

Vacation Bible School Date Change
This year, VBS will be offered from June 28th - July 1st. More information, including how to register, will be forthcoming, but we wanted you to know of the change of dates. Additionally, we will be limiting this year's VBS to members of the congregation and their relatives, only, because of the pandemic. Please stay tuned!
