We are offering worship by video

The rate of COVID in Wisconsin, including Eau Claire and surrounding environs, is too high for us to safely or responsibly gather in person. We are offering a recorded worship service on our church's YouTube channel. Sunday morning worship videos are available by 6 am on Sunday morning (and more often than not, available Saturday night, but no guarantees on that). Links to worship will be here on this page (see below), including a link to our weekly bulletin so you can follow along, and we also post a link to the YouTube video on our Facebook page. The YouTube video description always includes a link to the worship bulletin, and sometimes links to other materials related to that Sunday's worship.

Pastor David posts a vesper service (evening prayers) on evenings, Monday through Friday, and those are posted to our YouTube channel sometime during the day but before 7 pm. A cross link is posted on our Facebook page at or around 7 pm. Links to Vespers are not posted on this website, but our YouTube channel can be arranged to show videos by date, so you can easily keep track of new posts.
