the COVID-19 pandemic continues to distance us from our communities, it is easy
to feel isolated. Though we cannot come together in person, we are blessed that
we are not alone. We are still a community that cares for one another, and for
leaders are committed to doing what we can to slow the transmission of
COVID-19. To that end, we will continue to follow best practices – including
suspending in-person gatherings like worship and meetings for as long as
we are also committed to being the
church. This happens in many ways:
Worship. We are posting every week. Click here for the latest worship
