In response to the: CDC, President, Governor, Bishop, County Judge, and Mayors’ recommendation to slow down the spread of COVID-19 we now can begin worshiping in-person as long as it is in safe ways and with modifications (our current plan).
Schools are out for the rest of the school year, we will continue to experiment with worship online and continuing other ministries in new ways. It may be bumpy at first, but together with Christ we can make it through.
If you are sick or someone in your household is sick: stay home, get well, and let us know so we can be praying for and with you. People 65 years old and older or people who have health vulnerabilities, please continue to stay home, watch or listen to the services, and let us know so we can be praying for and with you.
