ONGOING UPDATES

Our Plan for Regathering  *June 1 Update


We are excited to announce that we are now moving towards regathering as a church family. Although we cannot know all the exact dates and locations as we prepare to regather, and though it can feel like we are aiming at a moving target, we have created a phased plan that will give us a sense of direction over the next few months. Rest assured that we will follow guidelines from local and state authorities while considering the unity and impact of our church as we move into different phases. This proposed roadmap will take us to in-person Sunday Worship Gatherings. *Dates and locations for Phase 1 are locked in while dates and locations for Phases 2 & 3 are still tentative.


PHASE 1 - Sundays, June 14 & 28 at Trinity Lutheran Church Parking Lot (1195 Centre St West Roxbury)


-Online Gathering (10am) 

-Drive-Through Encouragement (any time between 11:30am-12:30pm) - Gift, communion, prayer, and say "Hi!"


Things are beginning to move forward and greater days are ahead!


With you, 

Charles River Leadership

  • Join Us Online | Watch our online Worship Gathering each Sunday at 10AM or 5PM. There's live chat, worship, and biblical teaching.
  • Get in a Group | We might be distancing physically from each other, but it doesn't mean that we need to feel isolated. Our groups are still meeting digitally!

  • Prayer | Use this link to let us know how we can be praying for you. Email us if you would like to set up a phone call for prayer from one of our pastors.
