For amphitheater services you can park in the church parking lot and walk to the amphitheater, or if you prefer, drive toward the amphitheater we have parking on the top of the hill and a parking area to the side. Handicapped/disabled people can park to the left of the stage or behind the stage.  If you need help in the church, please park under the awning and someone will be able to assist you.

We ask that congregation members maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another. Families may sit together.  We ask that you wear your mask till seated.

What is seating like in the church?  Church seating is social distanced at this time. We are limiting seating till more of our congregation are vaccinated. Please call for reservations. Our seats are cushioned. We have a few chairs with arms for those that need them for stability and getting up. If you need one, we can bring one to you or move them around as needed. Let us know.

Spiritual Discipline - One spiritual discipline is spending time with the Lord. "Practicing Solitude with Silence are the most important spiritual disciplines of people today in our busy noisy world. We need to unhook and get away to be alone with our Lord,"  says Dallas Willard. Quiet your brain, stop interuptions, not doing anything, stop obsessing, stop distractions, stop everything and go before God like Jesus would. You must teach yourself and be intentional. Enter into a time and  turn off devices (phones, tv, computers, music) and be alone.  Plan a good time when you are not likely to be interupted. When others aren't home or early in the morning before others are up. Late at night when others are in bed.

Watch the Wednesday's video on 3/31/21 spiritual study to learn ideas to help you listen for God's voice in your prayers and solitude.
