Outdoor Church Services

Hello, Morning Star Family!

MStar is moving outdoors for Church on the Lawn! Starting August 9, we will be meeting on the front lawn of our campus for our 9 and 11 am Sunday worship services! We plan to gather in the beautiful Oregon outdoors (weather permitting) for the rest of the summer and as long into the fall as we possibly can. Here are a few important things to know:

  • Please read the “outdoor worship service” section below to know what to expect during our outdoor services.
  • If you want to understand some of the “whys” regarding our choices during this season, PLEASE CLICK HERE to learn about the heart behind our decisions.  
  • Moving our in-person Sunday morning gatherings outside will require some extra volunteers before and after each of our services. If you would like to volunteer for our set-up or tear-down teams, PLEASE DO SO BY CLICKING HERE. No experience or special knowledge required!  

Outdoor Worship Service Expectations and Requirements // Services will be held on Morning Star’s front lawn, immediately on the left as you enter our main driveway.
