We have constantly monitored the State guidelines and did our best to follow what was being advised. We will continue that procedure. Therefore, we are at a point where we are being told that social distancing and masks are no longer required for our church services. We ask that everyone use common sense regarding their own personal needs on the matter. If you are not comfortable returning to public worship services, please understand that we will be live streaming from now on even after this situation is resolved. If someone decides to continue using a mask and social distancing, we ask everyone to accommodate that decision. Respect for other’s decisions is of great importance. The Elders want to thank everyone for being so patient and understanding during a truly unprecedented event in our nation. 

In the love of Christ,

Your Elders
