The Saturday evening service (traditional worship) will be conducted in the sanctuary of the church at 6 p.m. Worshipers will enter by the door under the portico (roofed) entrance or the double doors by the ramp on the Kingsbury Avenue. These will be the only two door available for entrance. Attendances will be taken at the door and offerings will be received there.
