We thank everyone for their loyalty and generosity to the church and for continuing to send and drop by offerings during this time we cannot be meeting in person.
The staff of the church and the leadership is committed to keeping our church together and keeping it strong during this time, continuing no matter what to serve people in our community and around the world.
