Outdoor Pop-Up Church

Join us for an outdoor Holy Eucharist service at the Front Circle on the Saturday of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th weekend, weather permitting (an addition to our Pre-Recorded Worship offering).

The service includes readings, prayers, a homily, and communion (bread only—gluten-free available).

Because of the epidemiological studies that show that outdoor worship is significantly less risky than indoor worship, our diocese has said we can offer occasional in-person outdoor worship, weather permitting.

  • The next Pop-Up Church is Saturday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m.
  • Please register in advance HERE and you will be checked in at the circle drive near the front doors of the church.
  • Download the Service Bulletin HERE.
  • It's essential that you wear a mask throughout the worship (we'll have a few extras available just in case).
  • Stay safely distanced (at least 6ft.) from those who are not in your quarantine group.
  • Please bring your own chairs or blankets.
  • We will ask you to sanitize your hands prior to picking up a bulletin.
  • Please try not to use the indoor bathrooms at this time—they will still be available if needed.
  • We ask that you not linger long after the service, and stay distanced when returning to vehicles—Coffee Hour is available every Sunday on Zoom at 10:30 a.m.
  • In case of heavy downpours or driving rain, the service will be rescheduled.

Please join us only if you feel comfortable.
