From Session

Your Session and Staff have been prayerfully attentive to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation in order to ensure we do our part in loving each other well through these uncertain times. Out of that commitment we intend to be compliant with guidelines presented by our local, state and federal leaders. Therefore, all regularly scheduled programming is on hold until further notice, and the Church Work-Day, Community Easter Egg Hunt, and Maundy Thursday Seder are cancelled. 

To stay connected with one another we are doing our best to make virtual opportunities available. We will continue to maintain an office presence in order to enact those opportunities and preserve ongoing communication, but please call or email the office rather than visiting in person. [ see full letter below ]

Cancellations:
March 28 - All Church Work Day
April 9 - Maundy Thursday Messianic Seder
April 11 - Community Easter Egg Hunt
Please Pray for : Jerry Jaudon, John Dalton, Bob Bement, Louise Brelsford, Jean Pollock, Jan Kelly, Barbara Steinbach, Aaron Leath
