I have some very good news for you!


Beginning Sunday June 7th


We will be holding our 9 AM Sunday services LIVE and IN PERSON.
Our live broadcast will be available during the service and afterward.


Outside in our parking lot where we can worship & study together, while meeting & exceeding all practical recommendations by our healthcare professionals.


Everyone's invited, all ages can attend, but children of all ages must be with their parents at all times.
We'll have ushers ready to help everyone find seating where they will be comfortable, with more information at sanitation stations.
And we will remind all to love, and not judge one another.


For you who are at risk, unhealthy, or quarantining we'll continue  streaming on all of our current platforms.
Please read through the CDC's guidance on who needs to take extra precautions.

Questions may be sent to our Pastors through our website, app, or Facebook.

There is still lots for us to prepare, so be praying for us, and know that we are praying for you.

And that's a wrap.
