A. Antioch’s Mask Only Service happens in Small Chapel at 11:15AM on Marion Campus. Attendees may enter and exit through the Children’s Entrance, which is the closet to the Small Chapel. The music and message will be livestreamed from the 11:15AM service in the Worship Center. Features of the Mask Only Service include socially-distanced seating, self-serve communion, offering, and bulletins, and an opportunity to register for events – all located in the Small Chapel. A pastor will be available in the room at the end of service to talk and pray with you if desired.
