Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study
A note about in person worship. The longing to be in God’s house to worship and hear his Word is strong in the Christian. We know this is where we belong and where we need to be. While it is good to have available virtual/online worship, it is only a concession in times of dire need. If you are in a high-risk category for this virus we want you to be careful and take advantage of our online services. Otherwise, we encourage you to be in the Lord house. As we do so let us all, in love for one another, take the appropriate precautions to mask, hand sanitize, and social distance.
This service is live streamed on You Tube at 8:00 on Sunday mornings. It is available from that time forward at the following link: https://youtu.be/EQMBG-Mzf8o

There are many ways you can give; through the offering plate when you are here in person or if you re not here in person you can give through your banks bill pay, electronically through the website, on your smart phone or even through paper application.
