We are tentatively planning to resume in person worship at the church beginning Sunday, April 11th at 10:30AM.

There will be limited seating, as Covid-19 precautions and policies will be followed.  Seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and when the seats are filled, anyone remaining will be invited to worship from their cars.  Please be sure to read our guidelines prior to worship.
