What to expect

We invite your family to join us this Sunday for our worship gathering! We believe that church should be exciting, engaging, and purposeful for the whole family. You can expect to be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are genuinely excited to see you.

Our gatherings last about an hour, and they are filled with modern music and biblical, Christ-centered messages. Arrive a few minutes early to enjoy a hot cup of coffee on us!
Kids are invited to participate in Kids Church, during the message portion of the gathering. To learn more about Kids Church, click below.

Do I need to RSVP for an in-person worship gathering?
  • No, but we will have you check in when you arrive in the lobby.

Where do I enter and exit the building?
  • You should enter at the front entrance (look for the blue welcome flags).
  • Please get checked in by the stained glass window.

What will the in-person worship gathering be like?
  • We will continue with live music and preaching. 
  • Coffee will be served from the lobby before each service and may be consumed in the sanctuary. 
  • We will not be serving refreshments after the services due to a lack of a large space for indoor eating.

  • Absolutely, yes! We plan to continue to provide the online worship service as we have been doing. It will broadcast at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m.

Will social distancing be practiced?
  • We will be asking everyone who attends Princetown Church to practice physical distancing while on our property. This is for the safety of all who are in attendance. We will ask that all families stay together and maintain at least 6 feet of distance between other households.

Are masks required?
  • Our elders have prayed about this, sought counsel from doctors, and we are following our governing leadership’s recommendations about masks, so yes, masks are required to participate in the in-person worship gathering. There are slight differences between the two services to accommodate as many people as we can.
    • 9:00a Service - Masks will be worn by all people at all times while in the building
    • 10:30a Service - Masks will be worn when up and moving. When you are seated and 6 feet away from other people you may remove your mask. 

Will there be singing?
  • Although singing increases the risk of spreading COVID-19, it is a joyful form of worship, which God commands His people in Scripture. Therefore, we will be singing together, as we do our best to practice appropriate health precautions.
