Week of July 5, 2020

​In-Person Worship next Sunday July 12th!

We will offer three worship times – 8:30am, 11:15am and 5pm. More details can be found at our Worship Sign-Up page. We will continue to live stream services for those who are not comfortable or not able to worship in person, and we will continue to offer Holy Communion in small groups throughout the week.

We live-stream worship Sunday mornings

In addition to in-person worship, we will continue to live-stream worship Sunday mornings on our webpage (, our Facebook page, and on YouTube. Sharing our live stream is a great opportunity to share God’s Word with others! Please stay tuned for more details on our live-stream time, as we transition back to in-person worship.

In-Person Communion Continues:

Sign up on our website under the ‘Worship’ tab / Holy Communion Sign Up ( Due to COVID related concerns, we are limiting group sizes to 10 or less. For additional details please contacts Pastor Jason.

Morning Prayer / ‘Matins’ on Fridays at 10am

This is another opportunity to stay in God’s Word! Join us every Friday morning on our FaceBook page as we livestream a brief morning worship. (Please note: there will be no Morning Prayer tomorrow 7/3, as our church office will be closed in observance of the Independence Day holiday).

Offerings / Tithes:  

Donating online is secure and can be set up once, to be made on a recurring basis, or done weekly. Our website offers a ‘donate’ option at the bottom of the homepage. You can also mail these to the church or place in our secure mailbox at Door #1.  Thank you for your faithfulness in keeping our church operating during this time!  We are blessed to be a blessing…
