Latest Update in Response to Covid-19

Same Mission - New Rhythms

August 4, 2020

Dear Legacy Church Family,

We have resumed in person worship gatherings in accordance with Washington State guidelines and following the CDC recommendations. The details are outlined below.

Sunday Worship Gatherings

We are gathering in person for worship services at 9am and 11am on Sundays. Additionally, we will be streaming the 11am service online via facebook live. We encourage those who are symptom free and feel comfortable to join us in person for worship. We are currently limiting each service to 30 people in attendance and ask that each person pre-register online in advance. Click here to sign-up to attend the worship service this Sunday.

If you are high risk because of age, underlying health conditions, or simply just don't feel comfortable being around others because of health concerns, we totally get that. For this reason we will continue to stream the service via facebook live on the Legacy Church facebook page. Of course, if you are expiriencing any symptoms we ask that you stay home and join us online for worship.

A note to visitors

If you have a different home church that you regularly attend that isn't yet gathering for worship and are considering visiting Legacy Church in the meantime, we kindly ask that you join us online via facebook live instead of in person. We encourage you to remain as connected as possible and engaged as possible with your home church.

If you are not connected with a church locally and would like to visit Legacy Church, we welcome you to join us in person or on facebook live. If you are planning on coming to a service, please sign-up in advance so we have a spot for you.
