Sunday Evening Service Announced
This past Monday, June 15, your session met again to determine the initial steps to reopen the church. The consensus was that we definitely need to begin reopening in some way, with an emphasis on offering safe options for people to engage with in-person worship.
We are thrilled to announce we will soon begin to provide an in-person worship service. This evening, or "vespers," service will be held Sundays at 6pm on the lower level of the garage. The first vespers service will be on June 28, and be held weekly thereafter for the foreseeable future. We will continue our ongoing online livestream worship service each Sunday morning at 8:30. A few details about the vespers services:
- Capacity for the vespers service will be limited
- Advance reservations will be required. The reservation system will be activated each week on Wednesday at noon for the following Sunday's vesper service. Links will be available on the home page of our website or by using the button below.
- Social distancing practices will be implemented
- The wearing of face coverings is strongly encouraged for the well-being of everyone involved
- Seating will not be provided, instead attendees are asked to bring their own lawn-style chairs.

We are also continuing to strategize on returning to worship in the Sanctuary later this summer, which is what we are all looking forward to happening as soon as we can safely do so. The session will be reconvening for a special meeting in a couple of weeks to begin discussing that process.
Please pray for the Lord to provide wisdom, courage and compassion as we move forward. As you know, things have been changing quickly regarding the virus and we need wisdom from the only one who sees the future clearly. Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord and the church he has gathered at Central.
