worship services have temporarily been cancelled

until further notice

Due to an increase in the number of cases of COVID-19 and to do our
part to stop the spread of the virus.  
Hope to see everyone soon!  God’s Peace and Blessings +

The church will be open from 4:00 – 6:00 on Wednesdays starting October 7 (Except for the 3rd Wednesday of every month due to Soup Suppers)  for individual units (individual, family or couple) to have communion and prayer. No one else will be permitted inside the church, besides myself, while you are there. Our time together will be no longer than 10 minutes.  When you arrive at the church you may or may not see another car in the parking lot. Not seeing one does not necessarily mean no one is inside. You must go to the door to see if there is a green heart on the door or a red one. Red means ‘stop’ you cannot proceed. If you cannot go in you may choose to wait (which could mean up to 10 minutes) or come back later. Green, of course, means it’s a go!   Do not come unless you are healthy.  Face masks are required. Please use the sanitizer at the door when you enter. Turn the heart on the door back to green when you exit.  I look forward to sharing some sacred time with you! Let us keep the faith and not lose heart! Pastor Julie
