Sunday Worship Service at 10:00 a.m. Now Offered on Zoom

Worship services will now be offered live on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. through our Zoom.

We know this is one more form of technology to use/learn. Because we are now under shelter-in-place and our bishop has asked us to respect that in all forms, we needed to find a solution that did not require our pastors to be in the Sanctuary. Facebook live, which is the way we offered worship last Sunday, does not allow us to lead worship from separate locations, with Zoom, each of our pastors can lead from their homes. It will also allow us to include hymns, a bulletin, and a children's sermon! We appreciate your prayers and patience as we try new things and adapt to our current situation. Know too that we are praying for you as you do the same!

Concerned about using Zoom? Are you an expert at Zoom who's willing to help others? Are you a fast typist who would be willing to lend those skills to help us with closed captioning? Let us know here:

As we did last week, after the worship has been streamed live on Zoom, it will be available in video form on our website for those who must or desire to participate at a later time.

The church building will remain closed until May 10.

All employees will be working from home, as needed. All church activities and events through May 10 are cancelled, including Friday Night at the Movies.

We will assess the situation as time goes on and keep you updated should that information change.
