A word from our Council President, Jan Martin:
After the listening session on July 18, a survey and discussions with those who could not attend, the ministry team had a lengthy discussion about worship this fall. This decision was made with the knowledge that two services on Sunday is more work for the ministry team. Some of the important factors in reaching this decision were:
1) With two services it will be easier to respond to changing recommendations from the CDC and county health officials, and to maintain appropriate distance between family groups during worship as care for the health of our members is part of our ministry.
2) The time between services will facilitate Sunday School, Bible Study and fellowship.
3) Some members of the congregation prefer one service over the other.
This decision is supported by the church council, and will be reviewed as conditions change.
We are thrilled to announce we are going to gather in person for worship this Easter Sunday!
Please join us as we celebrate life after death through the resurrection of Jesus.

This Lent, we will walk the Way of the Cross, as we prepare for Easter. Every week we will look at different stations of the Passion. Stations of the Cross is an ancient spiritual practice that is pilgrimage for us. We, as Christians, value the season of Lent, as it brings us back to the cross, reminds us of our mortality, and our need for God and God’s grace. Join us in setting aside time to read, pray, and slow down this Lent!
