* A Message From The Board
Please remember to join us for the Sunday morning service, either via facebook (direct or through our web site) or in person.  If you feel the need to come in person we have been under capacity according to government regulations.

As just announced, our community has been placed under an enhanced watch list again due to COVID.  As a result, during this timeframe, we are requesting that all congregants in attendance wear masks throughout the service. We are sorry for the ever changing situation but it is out of our hands.

We will also continue to provide online services for those who are unable to attend.           If anyone feels called to help with technical support in this regard, please contact one of the board members.

Because the situation regarding COVID is ever changing, we will do our best to inform you of the updated status of our services as soon as possible.  We will also be adhering to the recommendation that we take attendance during our services and we will maintain those records for 2 weeks should contact tracing be required.  In addition, we will take under consideration other enhanced measures that may be required as they arise.

Respectfully the Governing Board
