MARCH 17 UPDATE

These are some interesting times we are living in. An upcoming presidential election, coronavirus, and financial instability are sweeping the world. During this time, it is important to remember that God is in control and still on the throne. While the world may seem to be going crazy, God is calling us to rest in His loving care, provision and healing. This is not a time to panic. The world may have changed, but God has not. We stand on His faithfulness.
 
During this time of concern about coronavirus, we are following CDC, government, and conference recommendations to adjust the way we do ministry for the next few weeks. As a result, we will continue to minister the Word of God, however it will be online or via the phone. We are avoiding in person worship services and meetings through March 31, 2020.
