In-Person Worship Gatherings

We will now offer three options for in-person worship services: an 8:00 a.m. contemporary service, a 9:30 a.m. contemporary service, and a 11:00 a.m. traditional service. Both the 9:30 and 11:00 services will be live-streamed for those who prefer to worship at home. You can find more details about each service here.

We are requiring that all attendees of an in-person service pre-register since spaces are limited due to physical distancing. You may register for Sunday, November 29th at the links below. Please remember to only sign up for one spot unless your family unit plans to sit in more than one pew.

*Register for the 8:00 a.m. (contemporary) service here.

*Register for the 9:30 a.m. (contemporary) service here.

*Register for the 11:00 a.m. (traditional) service here.

As we continue to love each other and our neighbor, we require that everyone attending an in-person worship gathering wear a mask and respect physical distancing of 6 feet. Keeping each other safe is very important to us. We hope that you and your family choose to join us for worship on Sundays at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00, or online as we gather to worship.

Please pray for healing as several members of our church have Covid. We cannot be thankful enough for the technological expertise of our young adults in Lyon. Despite our complicated situation, we rejoice to report that Sarah GUILLOT was baptized! Because of lockdown, only she, her husband, their 2 toddlers and I were present, wearing masks of course. Benoît filmed the baptism, and we shared the video with our church members. Benoît continues his study of God’s Word, and we pray that soon he too will want to commit his life to Jesus Christ. Please pray for Sarah & Benoît. Click here to subscribe to our newsletter.

 

Prayer Request on Behalf of Dr. Jim Wheless

Thank you all for praying for relief from the current pandemic, wisdom for those developing and testing new treatments and good health and calm for those in the health care field. In my 45 years of medicine I have never seen a time with so many anxious colleagues and co-workers at the hospital. They need to know they are being prayed for daily. Thanks for supporting in prayer these health professionals.
