After some brainstorming, we came up with a new hybrid worship gathering which will begin on December 13th, during the season of Advent.
When we say “hybrid” service, we mean a worship service that will be both live-streamed and in-person simultaneously. People will be in the sanctuary as that service is live-streamed online.
As we begin, it’s good to keep in mind that there are many rules to keep our gathering in line with COVID safety precautions and mandates for Oregon. There are technology challenges in achieving this type of service too. So we are working diligently to figure out how to have a meaningful service for those staying online, and for those who show up to our building.
The service will be from 10:30am-11:30am. You will have the option to sign up for this in-person service, with 30 people allowed in each worship gathering.
The service will have times that are interactive. Members of our congregation who are not present in the sanctuary will still be able to have roles on-screen. And in that service, we will also have times of interacting with the live chat in real-time as we worship. You could even take out your phone and chat with those who are worshiping from home! In fact, we encourage it!
