What to Expect
We understand that visiting a new church can be an intimidating experience. But please know we are thrilled to have you join us! We love to share our community with others.
We are aware that Watkins Glen and the Finger Lakes are popular vacation destinations, so don't worry if you forgot to pack your "Sunday Best!" Our focus is on fellowship and service, rather than the state of your jeans.
New COVID Policies
In response to the most recent NY State guidelines, masks must be worn at all times if unvaccinated, and are optional for the fully vaccinated. We do not want to ban anyone from worship based on their vaccination status, but we also wish to provide a safe and compassionate environment for the most vulnerable among us. There will be spare masks at the door for anyone who needs them.
We will continue to offer music in worship, with choir and congregational singing. We are currently keeping track of all who attend in case contact tracing is needed. Physical distancing is no longer required in the sanctuary, although the space is large enough to maintain distance if desired, and our balcony is available for people who wish to physically distance themselves from any contagions. Offering is now collected during worship once again.
Our church's entrance is on 6th Street, and is wheelchair accessible. Our parking lot is located behind the church, with its entrance on 6th; street parking is also allowed. See our Location page for a map and directions.
If you are wary of attending in-person services, or if you miss worship for any reason, we intend to continue recording our services — now in the sanctuary — for viewing on our Video page each Sunday evening.
Summer service times and office hours differ from the rest of the year, so please check our calendar for the latest information! Unless otherwise noted in our newsletter or church Calendar page: We observe communion on the first Sunday of each month.
We hope you will find our Sunday Morning Worship Service a most uplifting start to your week!
