Suggestions for on-line worship:

  1. Set up a place in your home where the entire family can gather to worship together with good audio. If you are able to connect to a smart TV, then that might be the best option. Please try not to allow each family member to watch individually on their own devices. Clean up the area and remove any distractions.
  2. Get dressed as you normally would for Church. Don’t worship in your pajamas in reverence to God.
  3. Though the format will seem a bit awkward, try your best to participate as if you were in our chapel. Pray when we pray, sing when we sing, have your Bibles at hand, listen attentively, etc.

  1. Past services & Pastor Peter’s weekly emails will be posted at
  2. You may still schedule a visit with your pastors during this time; pastoral visits will continue over the phone and video chat. Your pastors will also be reaching out to you.

  4. All other church gatherings will continue to be online.
  5. Pray for the following:
    • Pray for the eradication of this virus.

    • Pray that God would use this time to draw people to himself.
