Current Status of Programming

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are cooperating with government and healthcare officials and have currently suspended all services and gatherings until further notice. We believe that this is the most prudent and loving response we can do at this time. Please stay home and follow the recommended guidelines to stay as safe as possible.  Even though we have suspended our programs and events, our hope is in the Lord!

Because of the current "Stay At Home" order by the Governor, we are not having any services or other activities at the church and only necessary employees will be working to keep our online presence and ministries running.   If you need anything... prayer, someone to talk to... anything, please let us know. We recommend that you stay home, but if you NEED to come to the church for any reason,   please call (373-2035) before you come.
