Our Mission Statement: To locate the lost, bring them to Christ, and to help all Christians grow into the stature of the fullness of Christ.
We will continue to meet in the gym until further notice.
· The meeting will be at 10:30 am in the gym. Please arrive early if at all possible so the procedures can be taken care of before service starts at 10:30.
· There will be two seating areas – one for those that choose to wear masks and one for those who choose not to wear masks.
The doors facing the parking lot is reserved for those wearing mask. The one connecting the front side of the main building to the front side of the gym is reserved for those who are not wearing masks.
Here are the things that the elders request members to follow:
· As you come into the gym, you will have your temp taken and given communion packets and one baggie for each family. After communion, we ask that families put their debris in the baggie and throw it in a trash can at the end of service on your way out.
· Men handing out communion will be wearing masks and gloves.
· Hand sanitizer wipes will be available for all. When using the restrooms that are available in the gym, please wipe down the counters with the sanitizing wipes and the door handle before exiting. Then dispose of the wipe as you exit the restroom.
· We ask all to refrain from hugging and visiting close together while in the gym – you may stand outside and catch up with one another. Please try to practice the 6-ft distancing unless it is a family member. This is still recommended by the CDC and the John Hopkins website.
- Unless you have a medical reason for doing so, please refrain from sitting in the bleachers. They are not part of the seating arrangements.
We hope and pray that all will follow the elders' instructions so anyone coming into the gym will feel safe and cared for by our congregation.
We are looking forward to a great day of worshiping the Lord together.
Hope to see you at worship service.
Live streaming may be available for shut-ins and those who do not feel comfortable with meeting together yet. It is all according to how well our new equipment is working and whether there are any internet issue.

Deuteronomy 11:19, "You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."
We have camp grounds that we use for helping children celebrate national holidays in a safe environments.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12, "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! … And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
We are a praying church. We spend time each month at a member's home thanking God for His goodness and mercy and going before His throne with our concerns. Once a year our Triple L group (senior members) host a prayer brunch for the congregation to come together for a special time in fellowship and in prayer. We firmly believe that a church that prays together stays together.
