Why Is AMC Theatres in Webster, NY Closed For Movies?

By Pastor John on 7/13/2021

This past Sunday, we weren't sure we'd be able to have church.  AMC unexpectedly closed down late Saturday afternoon saying it was due to a maintenance issue.  There have been a lot of rumors going around but we spoke with the theater manager Sunday and I thought I would clear up the confusion.

Masks No Longer Required For Fully Vaccinated

By Pastor John on 5/29/2021

I just wanted to give everyone a quick update on masks.  This past week, AMC Theatres updated it's policy on masks which are no longer required for those fully vaccinated (waiting 2 full weeks after last vaccination).  We will follow their policy for our services also.  Children are still required to wear masks as well as those not yet fully vaccinated.  If you are fully vaccinated and feel more comfortable wearing a mask or face shield, we encourage you to do so.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

People Are Returning To Church

By Pastor John on 5/18/2021

It has been great to see more and more people returning to church.  Even though we are continuing to follow AMC Theatres' policies about wearing a mask until seated (even for those fully vaccinated), the recent announcement from the CDC and NY is an encouragement that things are getting back to normal.  Not only has our church attendance picked up, we are also seeing many more visitors.

Leading Worship and Preaching In The Same Sunday

By Pastor John on 2/18/2021

Though I can both lead worship and preach, I used to find it difficult to do both in the same Sunday.  While I enjoy both, it can be hard to find a moment to take a breath!  The more I do it though, the easier it gets.
