It is with saddened, yet determined, hearts that we inform you we will be suspending in-person public worship through the next few weeks. Given the Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Stay-at-Home Health Advisory with the recommendation to only leave home for essential services (work, school, groceries, pharmacy), and with the overall surge of COVID-19 cases and increased hospitalizations, we believe it is our responsibility to do our part in curbing the spread, not just for the sake of our congregation, but our neighborhoods we call home, not to mention for our local hospitals for the critical weeks ahead. The advisory is in effect until December 17, so we hope to re-gather in-person the weekend of December 19/20 (unless the circumstances improve before then). We also hope by doing our part now, we may be able to celebrate together on Christmas Eve. Regardless, our call remains to love and serve our neighbor. During these COVID-19 times, this is how we do exactly that. So yes, we are sad, to say the least, to not be able to worship together in-person for the time being. And yet, we are determined in our ministry of sacrifice for the good of our neighbors. In the meantime we continue to offer video recordings of worship through the "News" tab above. We pray God's blessings of sustained compassion upon you and yours!
We offer a circular drive on the north-side of the church, beside Libby Road, where you can be easily dropped off, if need be, or park along the drive for no stairs to enter the sanctuary. We, also, provide large-print bulletins to follow along in worship, as well as headphones for those who need audio amplification. In addition, there are spaces by some pews for wheelchairs.
We celebrate Communion at every worship on Sunday, and we believe the meal is prepared by Christ as the ultimate host, inviting anyone who wishes to partake to do so. We do not care about your religious affiliation. This is a gift of God for all people of God! We offer gluten-free wafers in addition to the regular wafers, as well as both wine and grape juice.
