In Person Worship at Chapelstreet Church FAQs

The physical gathering of God's people is a priority when it can be accomplished wisely and safely. Chapelstreet Church has graciously offered us the use of their Mill Creek Campus to gather in person Sundays at 1:30 pm (our Prayer Gathering will be at 12:45). Though we will not be livestreaming our service, it will be recorded and uploaded to our website and YouTube during the week following the service.

We are aiming to provide the best in-person experience possible without compromising the health of our congregation, staff, volunteers and hosts. Given there are a wide variety of opinions on how to act during this pandemic, we ask that we all show grace towards one another during this difficult time of social distancing and limited gatherings and do our best to keep each other healthy.
