We will reopen for 'in-person' worship on Sunday, January 17th, 2021. In accordance with the guidelines from the Livingston County Department of Health, we will adhere to the following guidelines:


  • Gatherings will be limited to 50 persons
  • Social distancing will be practiced
  • Face masks MUST be worn. For your convenience we have face masks and hand sanitizer stations available.
  • To minimize cross traffic all persons must enter via the gym and exit via the main front doors.
  • Registration for worship MUST be submitted via our website or by phone (815.842.4321) no later than the Wednesday prior to the worship service you wish to attend. (Registration for Sunday, Jan. 17th will open on Jan. 5th)

We ask for your continued patience as we move forward into a “new normal” and remind you that these plans are subject to change at any point in light of new information or state/federal health guidelines. Your pastors and church leadership continue to carefully monitor this situation as it progresses and are in prayer for wisdom and guidance moving forward.
