Let’s get together.

We are excited to resume in-person gatherings as part of our weekly Sunday worship experience beginning November 21. We will return to Commonhouse Aleworks in Park Circle and gather in their outdoor space. We will also continue to live stream the service to our Facebook and YouTube pages with moderators ready to welcome you however you choose to be with us on Sunday morning!


What to expect during worship

Outdoors

Worship services at Commhouse are held outdoors in the Commonground gathering area of Commonhouse Aleworks. We will meet there, regardless of temperature or weather. The gathering space has tents covering three rows of tables and some tabletop hand warmers. We will have a few heaters as well. Bundle up if you come –– we’ll be there for you! 

Online

We will live stream our worship every Sunday. We will have moderators on our Facebook and YouTube live streams to interact with our online and in-person worshippers. 

Masks

We strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask, especially those who are unvaccinated or in a household with a vulnerable person. 

Physical distancing

We strongly encourage physical distancing between people who are not in the same household. We will have plenty of hand sanitizer and extra masks available. Three tables with special signage will be set aside for those who need or prefer extra space. 

Communion

We will celebrate the sacrament of communion every week. We will have individually packaged elements to give to those who worship with us in person.

Children

Through the end of 2022, our children’s spiritual formation team will have activities for children and families that can be completed at the seats of the families. Children and their caregivers can come to the children’s tent, receive the supplies, and return to their seats. Click here to learn more about our program offerings for children and families.

Food

Commonhouse is closed to the public during our worship services and no food or drink is sold. You are welcome to bring your own coffee and breakfast. At 11 a.m., Commonhouse opens for brunch. You are invited and encouraged to stay after worship and visit with others; food or beverage purchases are optional.

  • Commonhouse is a wheelchair-accessible venue. There are no steps to entry (ramps are provided) and a variety of seating is available, including firm chairs with arms. 
  • Parking is limited near the building. There is a large, flat parking lot across the street from Commonhouse with handicapped parking spaces.
