What they all have in common is that they need you. Please cover them with prayer as they prepare for this trip. When you see them, ask about their plans and how you can pray specifically.

Sunday in-person Worship Covid Precautions
We are pleased you chose to join us in-person this Sunday morning! We ask that if you do not feel well, or have any symptoms of sickness or fever, that you stay home.

We are not requiring masks, simply suggesting the safety of wearing them, making them available, and keeping everyone aware of current guidelines.

We have masks available as well as hand sanitizer in the church lobby. Please be respectful when it comes to hugs and handshakes. Some people are more comfortable with what is going on than others and again, we simply want to act in love.

Please take a communion cup (bread is underneath) as you enter the worship center in preparation for the Lord's Supper.
We recommend using the QR code to view the virtual bulletin using your own phone or tablet.

Weekly Worship is also streamed online weekly from our Facebook and YouTube pages at 9:00 am Sundays and from our CHOP (Church Online Platform) at 10:30 am.
