The Temple will be closed to the public until further notice. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy. I will be working from home so please don't hesitate to call or reach out with any questions, concerns, or just to say hello as all calls are forwarded to my cellphone. We will keep the website up to date with information as things are always changing.

If you would like help with Zoom or would like to try it out before a meeting please let me know and we can do a practice meeting!

This is an adjustment for everyone and we may have a few bumps in the road (virtually),  but this can only make our community stronger.

Stacie Gabert, Administrator  
To help keep everyone safe & healthy in these challenging times, we're going to have services online.
