Worship Schedule
In lieu of in-person worship due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are adding a "live" Sunday morning devotional option using Zoom, complete with a "virtual coffee hour," beginning at 10 am. This devotional time is not a complete worship service. We invite you to continue to access the excellently prepared pre-recorded worship on YouTube for the many elements of worship you look forward to. The advantage of the Zoom devotional time is the interactive opportunities, including time for conversation in small groups, using the "breakout rooms" feature. Please sign up for Sunday morning worship/devotional time: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F094BA8A87-live The Zoom link will be sent at 8 am Sunday mornings, so please sign up before that time. If you sign up after we will not be able to send the link. 

You can also find our Pre Recorded Worship service available on the Chelsea First YouTube channel, it is available after 6 am on Sunday: click HERE
