COVID-19 has shut-down many public gatherings and brought massive disruption to our lives. What we’re experiencing is unprecedented. Yet as disciples of Jesus Christ, we worship and serve a great God who is sovereign. “Our God is in the heavens, He does all that He pleases.” (Psalm 115:3). COVID-19 is no surprise to our Sovereign Lord, who is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He has promised never to leave us or forsake us (Heb. 13:5).

We have set-up this landing page to share important links that will help all of us stay informed even as we operate out of faith and not fear.

We have begun some in-person services outside on the church parking lot at 10:30am Sundays. Masks and social distancing are required of those who attend. A recording is available online at 4:00 pm  on our Facebook page. Please note that a Facebook account is not required to view the service.
