AS WE RETURN- A Walkthrough Guide

  Uncategorized 

Hello Church Family and Friends,

We are so excited to be able to meet at our facilities beginning June 7, 2020! Please read the following list of details for what our worship together will look like for a time. As you read through the details, we desire for you to view them in light of Paul’s words in Philippians 2:3-4, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” We will continue to offer a worship gathering posted online at 8:15am each Sunday for those not wishing to join back with us in person at this time. Be watching for more details and developments as we move forward. We will release updates as timely as possible and appreciate your continued patience and support through prayer. We are looking forward to seeing each of you as you are ready and able to join us in person again!
