On Campus Worship FAQs

Pastor Brian's Welcome Back Video

The physical gathering of God's people is a priority when it can be accomplished wisely and safely. We are taking every precaution to be able to gather again at Kaneland Middle School. We are aiming to provide the best in-person experience possible without compromising the health of our congregation, staff, and volunteers. It will look and feel different, so we ask that we all show grace towards one another during this difficult time of social distancing and limited gatherings.
