Good News!! Starting April 11, 2021, we will be able to have live, IN PERSON, worship services with numbers limited by social distancing. We will continue to provide live streaming of the services on Zoom, Facebook, YouTube and this web page. Recordings will still be posted here and on our Facebook group page each Sunday. If you have a prayer request, you can click the "Prayer Request" button below. If you are in immediate need of pastoral care, please contact Pastor Lee directly.
Our Administrative Assistant will be working part time in the office (hours to be determined) so phone messages can be left. However, a response may be delayed due to the change in her hours.
H.O.P.E. House is still open to distribute food and clothing Monday and Wednesday from 9:00am to noon.
The church would certainly appreciate your continued contributions. Checks can be mailed to the church office and contributions can be made using PayPal.
During these days of COVID, there are four ways you can safely worship with us. Starting April 11, 2021, we will hold regular worship services inside! Social Hour after church is back!! Worship with us Sunday, then stay and get re-acquainted with your Church Family.
Because many people are hesitant to be out in groups, we will continue to provide our services live on Zoom. For those members of our congregation who have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a ZOOM video conference. People on the ZOOM video conference can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary and they also can participate in the worship service during a mini-social time before the service and during the sharing of Joys and Concerns.
Because many people are hesitant to be out in groups, we will continue to provide our services on a live stream. For those members of our congregation who do not have a camera and microphone on their device, the service is available LIVE on a LIVE STREAM. People watching the LIVE STREAM can see and hear what is happening in the Sanctuary. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.) We use the YouTube streaming service. Some members of the congregation have been able to watch the service using the YouTube app on their big screen smart TVs.
For members of the congregation who cannot worship with us on Sunday mornings, we record our worship services for later viewing. We try very hard to make the recording available around 7:00PM Sunday evenings. (Note: Click on the small square in the lower right corner of the video to see the service in a full screen.)
