UPCOMING EVENTS


In-Person Worship Registration

Saturdays 5 PM  |  Sundays 9 & 10:30 AM

If you are comfortable with in-person worship, we invite you to attend weekend services. If you wish to continue to worship at home, our 9:00 & 10:30 am services will be livestreamed to Facebook and to locchurch.com. In-Person capacity will be limited to 25%, and a reservation will be required. In order to provide a safe in-person experience for all, temperatures will be taken upon entry to the building, and masks will need to be worn. We will provide individually pre-packaged communion elements (grape juice and a wafer), and a gluten-free water will be available, as needed. The ushers will seat everyone to provide a socially distanced, and organized flow inside the sanctuary. We invite you to come and experience worship inside our beautiful new, spacious, state-of-the art Worship Center!
