Worshipping In Person or Online


You're spiritual and physical well-being are our top priority. That's why we have online worship services for those who are more comfortable worshipping from home, and we've created a safe environment for those of you who want to gather in person for worship. We have adapted multiple spaces in our building to ensure social distancing, including the use of masks, antibacterial stations, individually packaged communion, and more. Although we don't have children's ministries at present in the building (we do online!), we have family-friendly worship services in the East Auditorium that include activities for the kids and kids worship music.

If you have any questions or are in need of support, please contact the church at 217.875.3350 or questions@firstdecatur.org.
