On-Site Worship: Update to Worship Guidelines


On-site services are being held at our Carmel, Fishers and Indy sites. We are happy to offer this in-person worship experience! These services adhere to state guidelines regarding social distancing and safety. We look forward to seeing you in worship. Service times are:

  • Carmel: Saturdays, 5 pm traditional and 5:30 contemporary, and Sundays, 9:30 am traditional and 10 am contemporary
    (Sunday services are also live streamed. CLICK HERE TO WATCH.)
  • Fishers: Sundays, 8:30 am traditional and 10 am contemporary

  • Indy: Sundays, 10 am
    (On July 26 at 11 am there will be an Outdoor Worship Service. CLICK HERE for details.)

In accordance with the state guidelines, we will ensure a distance of 6 feet between individuals or family units of the same households during services. During this time our on-site worship services will look a little different:

  • Attendance will be limited to 160 people per service (50 people for Indy).
  • Services will be approximately 45-60 minutes in length.
  • Those attending a service must cover their mouth and nose with a mask from the time they arrive until the time they leave.
  • All services will include Holy Communion.

Before attending worship, please read through the worship service guidelines listed below. These guidelines are based on state protocols for places of worship, as well as our own safety precautions. We ask that you read these guidelines before you enter worship:

  • If you are ill or symptomatic, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND ON-SITE WORSHIP.
  • Those 65 and older, or those who have an underlying at-risk health condition, should consider staying at home and worshiping online.
  • Please remember to wear a mask at all times and interact with one another from a distance of six feet, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Please follow the directions of the worship assistants as you arrive and are seated.
  • Pre-packaged communion elements will be picked up when entering worship. Please wait for the Words of Institution before opening the elements.
  • While offerings will be accepted at stations outside of the worship spaces, we encourage you to continue to give your offering and fill out your connection card online at our website,
  • Bible study, Sunday School and DCL will continue to be ONLINE ONLY. There will be no on-site classes.
  • There will be no nursery services available.
  • There will be no donuts, coffee, or any other refreshments served.

We will still have online services available. CLICK HERE
