We are now holding in-person services indoors in our sanctuary at 10:30AM. Please pre-register (click here) for each Sunday's service to make our greeters' job easier. Only one person from each family needs to register, indicating the number of family members that will attend. Services will be live streamed on our Facebook webpage (click here) and an archive of recorded services are available (click here). Audio-only telephone broadcasts will continue to be provided on Sunday afternoon at 6PM (dial 701-802-5464, enter pin with hash sign 659965#).
While we feel we have implemented robust protocols to protect you, we encourage our most vulnerable church family members to worship at home. We would love to see you. But we want you to stay safe. Because we love you!
Small-group in-person meetings of up to 25 people are now allowed. All in-person meetings must comply with the guidelines provided in the next section and be scheduled with the church secretary. Only specific rooms in our church facility are available for in-person meetings. In-person meetings of more than 5 people must be approved by the COVID Recovery Team. The meeting request/approval form is provided below, which can be submitted to the church secretary by e-mail. Approval should take less than a day for routine meetings. Approval of larger or special meetings/events may take longer.
