***Yes, we are open for in-person worship service(s)***
In light of the most recent medical advances in combating the COVID-19 Coronavirus, Alden continues to adjust to various precautionary measures to ensure compliance with the CDC as well as leading health and government authorities. To that end, Alden begins a safe and strategic "soft reopening" of its facilities for in-person Sunday worship services (only). All other activities, gatherings, and auxiliary ministries remain postponed until further notice. Please note, Tuesday Night Teachings (TNT) at 6 pm will remain virtual.
As Alden begins to safely and strategically regather for in-person worship service, please know the process for corporate gathering inside the building has changed. We respectfully request your support and adherence to the following guidelines:
- Pray and prepare yourself in advance for returning to in-person worship.
- Per state and local guidelines, facemasks covering the nose and mouth are required to be worn at all times, and social distancing with be strictly enforced. Should you have or been around anyone who has displayed any Covid-19 symptoms or tested positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of the day of service, please stay home and tune in to the virtual broadcast, respectively.
- Please arrive early & enter through the chapel located to the right of the gym from the parking lot.
- Upon entrance, all attendees are required to complete pre-screening procedures & will be directed into the Sanctuary by way of the northeast stairway directly across from the fancy parlor.
- At this time, for the safety and overall health & well-being of all, "passing of the peace", hugging, embracing, handshaking, etc. will not be part of the service until further notice.
- Please make all financial gifts, tithes, offerings, etc. online through one of our various giving platforms. Please visit the giving link on the homepage of the website for online giving options.
- Dismissal from service will be led by ushers/appointed individuals by way of the southwest side of the building on Stebbins Street. Please adhere to all directions and guidance from staff/appointees.
We do understand that returning for in-person worship service is a personal and delicate decision. Therefore, as each individual decides when and how it is best to return to in-person worship, we want to ensure that our A.L.D.E.N. F.A.M.I.L.Y. remains connected. To remain connected, Alden will continue to utilize various media platforms to assist with access to live broadcast as well as viewing previous services through the following links:

Our highest priority continues to be the holistic spiritual and physical health and safety of our beloved congregation and community. Please know Alden’s leadership continues to be in close communication with local health and government authorities as we continue to monitor ongoing developments as we move forward in returning to in-person worship safely and strategically.
We look forward to your presence & participation in worshipping our Great God...We Love You & There Is Nothing You Can Do About It!
