Currently we are holding our


for all “In-Person” Services

We are asking all of our guests, family and friends to be aware and informed of our “Safe Fellowship Protocol” policy as it applies. During these trying times, we want to do all we can to provide you the assurance of being able to worship and fellowship safely. Based upon the recent changes in our Country and local communities and the instability of the COVID infections, we have established these components in our policy to minimize the risks to you and maximize your worship experience. Thank you for your adherence and cooperation. 



What Are the Symptoms of COVID  and What Should I Do?     




  • Signs have been posted and displayed throughout the facility informing you of our responsibility to you as a guest and yours toward each other in love.

  • Everyone entering the facility will be asked to wear face coverings or masks as a means to help minimize the risks associated with these communicable diseases. In light of the increased number of people who have been vaccinated, we are aware that some have not received the vaccinations.

  • Surface body temperatures will be taken of every guest. Anyone recording a temperature >100F degrees will be asked NOT to enter for the consideration, safety and potential health risks of others. 

  • Greeters will be at each open door to guide and direct you as applicable. They will be available to assist you with any questions or comments you may have regarding your health and safety during the services. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available throughout the facility for your comfort with the church greeters. 
  • Our seating capacity has been adjusted to ensure the social distancing and other health conscience guidelines are maintained.
  • If a guests or someone takes ill or develops unexpected symptoms, we will take necessary actions to ensure containment and see that medical attention is rendered. 

Outside The Facility

  • All guests are asked to follow the level of safety as it applies to them personally. 
  • Masks are NOT required to be worn but we expect everyone to be mindful and considerate of those who have and have not been vaccinated or otherwise have special health concerns.
  • If the CORONAVIRUS numbers are of a special interest to you, click the VDH (Virginia Department of Health) website link here to get the most up-to-date information available.
