Continued online Family Worship:

We love you, and when we cannot meet face-to-face, it pains the whole church body. However, we are considering your physical safety as well as your spiritual health. If you are over the age of 65 or immunocompromised and still plan to attend, we encourage you to join us at our 8:30 AM gathering. This service will have additional safety protocols in place for you.

If you are not ready to attend services in person, we will continue to offer Family Worship on our website each week, along with a worship guide, our nursery and elementary activity guides, and small-group questions to work through with your household.

We will continue to pray for you, call you, and keep you updated at

Stay Informed

Please know that we will take this one week at a time and will communicate all information on our website, via our Happenings email, and on social media. We will continue updates on this page of our website.

Receive and Offer Care

For those who are sick, we encourage you to recover at home and to contact us immediately so that we can pray for you and provide pastoral care to you and your family. If you are well in body, lean into your communities and learn how you can serve your neighbors—maybe that means picking up and delivering groceries or medications to the most vulnerable among you. In addition, serving others through prayer and faith is something we can all do. Put your energy toward reducing fear in others and increasing their faith in God through Christ instead.

Thank You

We love you and are praying for you. Thank you for practicing your peace in anxious times, thanks for following Jesus, and thanks for being the church that wants to be on the front line of ministry both on Sundays and between Sundays.
