Your health and safety are our top priority during this time. We are encouraging limited personal contact and frequent hand washing as preventive measures. Hand sanitizer will also be made available. If you are feeling sick, or if you have been in close contact with someone who is sick, please remain at home.

We have taken multiple steps minimize health risks and protect those most vulnerable to the coronavirus. We have thoroughly cleaned the church and made special efforts to sanitize common and frequently touched areas. We will continue to take these necessary precautions to ensure the health safety of our congregation.
