Our service on September 26, 2021, will not be recorded or live-streamed. We will be meeting in Athletic Park in the grove by the Mennonite Settler statue at 10:45 am for worship followed by a Bring Your Own Picnic lunch (not a potluck, please bring food for your household only.) We hope you’ll join us. If you prefer to worship online, please check out our YouTube channel for past services to view.

Current Worship Practices

Updated by the Congregational Board August 16, 2021

At its August 16 meeting, the congregational board decided to maintain mask wearing for gatherings at Shalom for the near future. This is because of the increased rate of COVID transmission in our community, the return to Sunday School, and the resumption of in-person school for our children, teachers and families. We will continue to worship outdoors once a month as long as the weather cooperates.
