COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT

We will have our church building open this Sunday morning for our 10:30 am worship! For those who are not yet ready for a return to the building we will still be utilizing Zoom on Sundays. Our Zoom meeting invite links are being sent through email, so if you would like to receive these emails, please let us know so we can add you to our contact list.


For those who plan to join at the building, we will be following the state protocol for churches re-opening, which means masks will be required, we will do temperature checks at the door, and will be seating at a social distance. Communion will be offered in person at the building, with individually packaged bread and juice cups.

Bible class will be conducted on Zoom only from 9:15-10:00 am. There will be a 30 minute break between class and worship service in order to give those who are meeting in person time to travel to the building after class.
