Upcoming Events


No In – Person Worship

The Bishop has canceled all in-person worship through December 13 effective immediately. This week we will be live streaming at 8 a.m. & 10:30 a.m. Next week we will be recording and posting to YouTube. We will send out links to let you know where you can access worship. PLEASE let us know those who do not have access to the internet, so we may stay connected with them in other ways. The Bishop has given permission for the support of outreach and mission ministries to continue so we are still hosting Love Boxes and Christmas for Kids. Extra precautions are being implemented and we are asking high-risk individuals not to be involved in the packing and distribution this year.
