Services During Covid-19

Our offerings and service look a little different during Covid-19. We're always re-imaging beloved events, and trying creative new ways to be and serve the church. Click below to see the most recent list of offerings.

Sunday Services

Spoken Holy Eucharist, 8 a.m.


Holy Eucharist with Music, 10 a.m.

with Church School and Nursery Care


Join us for coffee and community in the Great Hall between services! Nut-free snacks are served in consideration of those with allergies.

Our services are a mix of friendly and formal. We sing hymns, yet offertory music, preludes, and postludes can vary widely.


During Holy Communion, clergy and Eucharistic Ministers accommodate those who have difficulty walking to the altar or kneeling. Please ask if you'd like a gluten-free wafer. All baptized Christians are welcome to participate in Holy Communion.


Pastor Nancy will bless anyone with a birthday or wedding anniversary who wishes to come to the front of the church. 


On the first Sunday of each month, the names of parishioners who have died in that month are read aloud.

If there is a Level 2 or 3 Snow Emergency in Hamilton County, services and events will be cancelled, and the office will be closed. Please check check Hamilton County Weather Alerts.

Children's Sabbath

  • October 18, 2020
