Please Protect Your Neighbor


As we monitor the Covid virus, we see an increase in cases in our area and flu and RSV. Just a reminder that if you are not feeling well, even if you think it is something as simple as a cold, PLEASE STAY HOME and worship via Facebook. As usual, masks and hand sanitizer are available in several locations at the church. Let's keep everyone safe and healthy.
