Ministry Updates During COVID-19

We’re excited to meet together to worship the Lord. We will continue to keep extra safety measures in place. Below are health/safety features you can expect in-person on Sundays:

    • Masks covering your nose and mouth are recommended. For the safety of others, please wear one.
    • An entrance will be open so you will not need to touch a door handle.
    • Bulletins will be available for you to pick up from a table near the hand sanitizer.
    • No coffee, snacks, or refreshments will be served, but you’re welcome to bring bottled water with you.

Still Available Online
As always, we will continue streaming the services online via YouTube, Facebook, and our Sunday Services page. For those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19, the elderly or at-risk, please continue joining us online. You can also participate in a Sunday School class online.
