To honor the direction from government and health officials to restrict public gathers, we are not gathering together in person on Sundays. We have also temporarily suspended all ministry events and groups during the week, regardless of size. Although our church offices are closed and our staff is working from home, you can still reach us! Contact our pastors or other staff members here.
Watch our service each Sunday at 10 AM. Our desire is to have our entire church family worship together from each of our home or mobile “sanctuaries” as a way to gather together in spirit and fully rely on God, as He stirs our hearts to love and good works and to encourage one another—our friends, our families, our neighborhood— through Him.
Every need in the world is an OPEN DOOR to share God's love. That's why, as a church family, we're responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by serving the people who are most vulnerable.
No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, fear doesn't have the final say. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” Our hope is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, so we've been called to share that love with the world. And that's exactly what we'll be doing in the coming weeks and months as more and more people in our community are in need.
