September 5 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until September 5, 2021
It is with gratitude that we return to worship in-person in our sanctuary. As a community of faith, we are thankful for your commitment and faithfulness as we continue to live with COVID. With the necessary upgrades in the Sanctuary, we can now more safely accommodate worshippers and have the technology to simultaneously connect in-person and virtually. Also, as a city, San Antonio has reached the point with enough health factors indicating that we can gather in person responsibly. Yet, as we continue to face the challenges of a pandemic, we will gather with an abundance of caution and numerous safety precautions in place to ensure a safe, as well as worshipful, place. Therefore, I invite you to familiarize yourself with the safety protocols and practices below as we live into a new way of being, guided by the Word, responsive to the Spirit, and open to the grace of God.
You can join us online for a livestream of the worship service at 10:00 AM, either by telephone, Zoom Webinar, or YouTube Live. For technical issues email here for assistance. Please note that if we face any glitches with the livestream, the service will be recorded and available for your viewing later in the day on YouTube

Safety Precautions for the 10:00 am in-person service in the Sanctuary.
- If you can, please be mindful of where you park to ensure ample parking for visitors and siblings who need to park close to the church.
- After your arrival, please join us at one of the welcome tables at the northeast and northwest (Bushnell side) of the sanctuary to get a required disposable nametag.
- While in the sanctuary, masks are required. The correct way to wear your mask is to cover your mouth and nose.
- We are reducing the worship capacity with overflow rooms in the Continuing Education building, where we will stream the service, but do so in community.
- Worshippers will enter through Narthex doors and exit through all four exit doors, including the southwest and southeast Community Room doors that are behind the liturgical space in the front of the Sanctuary.
- While there are bulletins and hymnals in the pews, the service is also projected on the wall underneath the cross. You can also bring your own bible and hymnal or download it digitally as the Presbyterian Hymnal, Glory To God, is available on the app store of your choice.
- We ask you kindly not to sing, even while masked.
- The offering will be collected at the four exit doors after worship at the conclusion of the service.
- After worship, you are invited to connect with the worshipping community in the patio area adjacent to the columbarium.
Changes in the Order of Worship
- The service will be roughly 45 minutes long.
- At this time, we will not physically pass the peace or the attendance pads, but encourage you to take note of fellow worshippers sitting around you. We promote non-physical contact while greeting one another in community before and after the service.
- During hymns, the Choral Scholars will lead us in singing. We ask you kindly not to sing on Sunday, even while masked.
- The pastoral prayer will be given without the traditional sharing of Joys & Concerns.
A lot of input and thought has gone into the formation of these guidelines. While we are doing our best to share detailed procedures of in-person gatherings, there are likely to be continuous updates. Please continue to check the website for the most up-to-date information for events. We appreciate your cooperation as we live together in honor of God and respect for one another.
