The Building is Closed But the Church is Open!

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not held public worship or in-person meetings. Our bishop continues to give us updates on next steps. But for now, we are continuing to worship online through our Facebook page (which is accessible even if one does not have a Facebook account). Please join us every Sunday at 10:30am for a live-streamed worship service! We also have a coffee hour on Zoom after each service. (Details are also on the Facebook page). Also, our committees and small groups continue to meet by Zoom. If you would like to join in any of these online meetings, please e-mail with your request.
