Blessings to you brothers and sisters in Christ. I truly hope everyone is staying safe and well enjoying the blessings from the Lord.

We are excited to continue with our worship service every Sunday with Sunday School at 9:15 am and morning worship at 11 am and we are looking forward to seeing you soon for worship service. As you all know there have been some seating changes and that we have been permitted to increase our numbers for worship service. As things around us are lifting we want you to know that we are continuing with temperature checks and the wearing of masks to enter and during service until further notice. I do understand that many feel since they have received vaccination that there is no need for a mask but with new variants still lingering with no known deadline of this virus ending we must continue to practice and provide a safe environment for worship as possible we also want to assure you that the building is being cleaned, sprayed and sanitized frequently for your safety. I do understand that some of our family may still feel uncomfortable returning we want you to know we will still have drive-thru communion every first Sunday from 2 pm to 3 pm, we ask that you will continue to take part in communion with us also feel free to leave your tithes, offering or any contributions off at this time as well.
