Worship with Us Online!


In order to keep everyone safe and help protect our community, we are now worshiping via Zoom.  We enjoyed a couple of hybrid outdoor/Zoom services, but as colder weather sets in we will be worshiping on Sundays at 9:45 via Zoom  for the foreseeable future.  (If we have a warmer Indian summer morning that allows us to meet outside one more time, we will let you know!)

Our next Virtual Trivia Night is set for October 23 at 6:30 pm.  We form teams and answer questions from general knowledge categories, with some "churchy" questions thrown in.  Everyone welcome!  You can join via our regular Zoom link
