Listed below are some ways our church continues to serve as we are called to do. Announcements We at the church are so thankful and grateful for your willingness to keep everyone safe, but we need to remain diligent. Please continue to do the 4W’s: 1. Wear face masks; 2. Wash hands; 3. Watch your 6 ft. distancing; 4. Wait to visit until you are outside. At this time, we will continue to have song leaders and if you feel moved to sing- come join us and praise the Lord from the choir loft. God Bless.
