Worship

Worship During The Pandemic:

Since March 2020, HMC has held our worship services virtually. While we were planning to begin holding indoors in-person worship services in September 2021, the recent sudden rise in COVID-19 cases and having more than 40 children who are unable to be vaccinated at this time has caused us to delay meeting indoors for the time being; this decision will be reevaluated monthly. In the meantime, we will host virtual services as we have been, and are also planning some outdoors in-person gatherings. All in-person gatherings will require all attendees to be masked and maintain distance, regardless of vaccination status. Any details are subject to change depending on the severity of the health emergency. We will do our best to keep this space, our email listserv, and our Facebook page as up-to-date as possible concerning our moving forward with our hybrid model and any necessary changes to it as time goes on. Please contact the church office if you have any questions/concerns.

 


Pre-Pandemic Sunday Schedule:

Worship services are planned and led by volunteers from the congregation, working with our pastors.
