At the end of the service, please wait to be dismissed by an usher (starting in the rear).  Please exit the church. 

Message from the Worship Committee

THANK YOU!  During this time there are so many challenging decisions with so many different opinions.  We thank you for following the worship guidelines when attending the

in-person worship. We also appreciate your patience with the challenges of Zoom.   We thank you for your prayers, support, encouragement, generosity and your patience over the past year and ask that you join us as we continue persevering together a little longer.  We know that everyone misses seeing one another in person.

 

These are our plans at this time for Holy Week and Easter. Please watch the announcements for any changes.
