The following information is for attendees who come to church on Sunday morning to listen to the music and to hear the scriptures, about 15 minutes of programming.

It should be noted that the church building is not officially open at this time and that attendees are coming at their own risk.

There will be no offering collected, no food and no communion.

What to Do Before Coming to Church:

1. Please contact the scheduler to let them know that you want to attend on a Sunday at 10:15 am (This is for members of your household only.) Also, let them know if you plan to stay at church for Joys and Concerns and please plan to bring your own device.

Reservations may be made with Becky Bailey by email at or by phone at 765-4703.

Becky will arrange a Sunday for your household to attend.

2. On the Sunday morning for which you have a reservation, take the mandatory health screening below for each person coming to church:

  • -Have you traveled outside of northern New England in the past two weeks?

3. If ALL answers to the mandatory health screening questions are “No” on the Sunday morning of your reservation, then you may attend church.
