Do not come to in-person service if you experience any of the following symptoms:

Each participant will be asked to fill out a self health-check declaration form during registration.

REGISTRATION

In order to participate in-person, please see the information below.

  • As we require each participant to provide their contact information and health declaration, we highly recommend you to pre-register by Friday 5pm to reduce wait time on Sunday.

  • To ensure that every eligible person who wishes to attend in-person service has the opportunity to do so, the Board reserves the right to all registration's final decisions.
