This Week's Bulletin
Curbside Communion at Christiania
There will be a curbside communion distribution on the Wednesday following the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 1:30-2:30 p.m. The elements will be prepackaged and given to you in your vehicle (wafer and juice). Those distributing the elements will be wearing masks and gloves while maintaining social distancing from open windows. If you are uncomfortable accepting the prepackaged elements, you can decline and bring your own if you prefer. If you bring your own elements, please make sure to bring juice rather than wine. Future dates will be announced as they are scheduled.
Join us online at 1:00 on Wednesday afternoons for a time of reflection, meditation, and prayer inspired by a passage from the book of Psalms. It is a wonderful opportunity to stay grounded in God's word in the midst of our busy schedules. You can find the live stream through our Facebook page or the church website.
Indoor Worship -- Sunday at 9:00 a.m.
Join us in our sanctuary for worship every Sunday in August. These services last approximately 30-40 minutes. Reservations are strongly encouraged since seating is limited due to social distancing. There is a quick, hands-free check-in to verify everyone entering the building is symptom free to the best of their knowledge, and to make sure we have your phone number in case we need to give you a courtesy call should someone in attendance indicate they tested positive for COVID at a later date. To make a reservation, please visit our website or contact Carri in the office. Christiania’s guidelines for indoor gatherings are available on our website along with a welcome video that will let you know what to expect when you arrive. Masks are required as long as the state mandate is in effect. If you want to listen to the indoor services but do not wish to enter the building, the services will be broadcast live by radio in our parking lot. Simply park anywhere in the lot and tune your radio to 87.9 FM.
Online Worship -- Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
