Apart We Are Together

Church Family-

During this unprecedented time we know that being apart from our loved ones, church family, co-workers and friends can be difficult. It has been amazing to see the acts of kindness and love displayed in our community. In celebration of our effort to stay safe and protect each other we would like for you to share a glimpse of life during this time.
Send us pictures of you, of your family, your pets, activities that keep busy, baking,kid & adult art, worshiping at home. We will compile the photos into a Connection Letter to be sent within our congregation.

Thank you to all that have contributed so far!
