Please do your best to continue keeping in touch with one another.
Call each other, talk with one another, and pray with one another.
In the darkness and loneliness, we all sometimes need someone to talk with.

2020-2021 CHURCH THEME
We will continue to explore the Old Testament until
shortly after Easter 2021. Our Worship Services may
look a little different than they have in the past, as we
are not exploring the Traditional Gospel Readings.
Come learn & explore with us!
