COVID-19 Update

Sunday Services resume. Those wishing to attend must register in advance. Up to 50 people may attend a service. Please wear a mask and abide by social distancing standards. Communion will be offered in self-serve packages.
Saturday evening services and Bible classes are still on hold.

 

Keep minding the advice given by doctors and the health departments. Our actions can help keep the virus from spreading. Our hope and confidence is in Jesus, who is truly everywhere watching over his flock. In all of this, we remember again that we live in Christ.  Jesus said not to worry, worry won’t add one second to our lifespan. So let’s use caution, follow good advice, and trust Him.

Scripture saysdo not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:6-7

Remember – even in this pandemic God is with us and has everything in His hands, by His power and under His control. Be brave and very courageous, but not risky or foolish.

Please mail or send electronically your tithes and offerings to the church office.
