Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

Grace just wanted to touch base with you in regards to the COVID-19 epidemic.  Leadership decided last night that all church activities will be canceled until further notified.  A website has been created for having online church.  Another way to access the online church is to go to the church’s website which is and click on digital worship.  This will allow you to still worship at home.  However, the finished product on the web page will not be completed until 10:15 am on Sunday. 

Secondly, please feel free to mail in your tithes to the church at 510 Portland Street.

Finally, the church office assistant will be working remotely from home these next several weeks.  If you need something please contact Mindy on her cell phone or at home phone number which you can find in the directory or email the church at  As always feel free to contact a leadership member with any needs.

Continue to pray for God’s blessings during this current epidemic.  Thanks.
