What to expect at outdoor worship

Join us for worship outside, in the south parking lot, with prayer, instrumental music, and communion. Many safety measures will be in place, that you're probably pretty familiar with by now: masks required, temperature checks, physical distancing, hand sanitizing, no singing. Please bring your own chairs. Registration will be capped at 30 family groups or 50 people, so please register ahead of time (registration links can be found above).

Not familiar with our campus? If you're driving, pull in to the second entrance on North Decatur Road (the one closest to Emory Decatur Hospital). You'll see a sign directing you left through a gate into the hospital parking lot. Head to your right, then take another right, and park anywhere. Parking is free - the gate will go up automatically when you leave. There is a walkway back over to the church campus, where you'll be invited to sign in, get a contact-free communion cup, and find a spot for worship. 

If you're walking, enter campus through the parking lot at the corner of North Decatur Rd and Church St, then walk around the back of the church, through the playground and garden. 

ALL people are welcome - we're kind of known for our authentic welcome - and we look forward to seeing you!

We hope you can join us for prayerful, sacramental, peaceful worship services on Palm Sunday and Easter.

How to find us online

Our Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter services will be livestreamed on our Facebook page, YouTube channel, and here on our homepage
