Read the latest email update from Senior Pastor David McEntire (May 15, 2020).

Due to public health and safety concerns related to the coronavirus outbreak, we are suspending our gatherings, including worship, until further notice. Please continue to monitor public health announcements and adhere to CDC guidelines for combating the spread of coronavirus.

We are hosting services online via Livestream on our Worship Now page and on our church Facebook page. Both live and archived services are available. Our Contemporary Service will be live streamed at 9:30am Sundays and will be ASL interpreted. Our Traditional Service will be live streamed at 11:00am Sundays. Please join us online from your home.

Online and downloadable faith formation resources are available for all ages. These include Bible studies, at home activities, and streaming video resources. We hope these will provide you with ways to stay connected and grounded in these days.

All on-campus groups, gatherings, events, and classes are suspended until further notice. Many of these groups and meetings have moved to online platforms. Check with your group leader for more information.

CALENDAR UPDATES (as of May 15, 2020)

At this time the Executive Committee is not recommending a date for the resumption of onsite activities and worship. Rather, they are working to develop clear standards for the resumption of onsite activities and eventually onsite worship.

This is a heavy and important responsibility but we are blessed with faithful and wise leaders. We are grateful for their prayerful and reasoned discernment. Please be in prayer for them and for the responsibility they have undertaken. As these standards are clearly outlined they will be shared with you. Importantly, the Executive Committee is willing to consider a phased reopening which may begin with small group or essential ministries, as a way to begin the eventual return to normal.

Though we cannot meet face-to-face, we continue to be engaged in vital ministry across our community and around the world.

Your prayers are important and thank you for your generous support of the ongoing work of your church.
