Renewing Church for a New World

We’re kicking off the new program year and celebrating this exciting time in our life together with a Rally Week, September 12-20! There are in-person events for all ages and interests under (and around) the big tent.

Safety requirements for all gatherings:

  • In order to maintain social distance, we must limit the number of participants allowed under the tent. Additional participants may spread out over the lawn.
  • Participants are required to pre-register for events. Some links to registration forms are below; others for specific groups will be distributed via email. 
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of events to give time for check-in (including contactless temperature check).
  • Participants must be prepared to wear masks at all times, and should bring their own chairs or blanket (for their own household). Spaces will be marked off to establish safe social distancing.
  • Entrance will be from the Arnold Park side sidewalk. For most events, parking in the Arnold Park lot is recommended.
  • There will be very limited access to restrooms—please plan accordingly.
