LATEST INFORMATION ON REOPENING CHURCH: The Reopening Task Force group has determined we will begin meeting for in-person worship here at church on  Sunday, July 5th (no communion that Sunday).

We will have limited capacity for the building and limited seating because of health and governmental guidelines. Church will be VERY different for a while in how it looks and how we do things. More details on our worship will be forthcoming.
