Serving During Covid-19

The building is closed, but the church is OPEN. God has moved us into the neighborhood beyond our usual "place" and "programs” and allowed us to serve others at this moment with distinction and excellence. Viruses spread quickly, but KINDNESS is contagious too. Let's spread a little Joy, Hope, and see what Love can do.


It’s important to stay in step with the Spirit as you find ways to serve. Below are some suggestions that may help you stay in step as you find ways to love your neighbor. We would love to hear your ideas, email us.
