COVID 19 UPDATES
We are still the church and are still called to share the love of God in Christ. But for a little while, we will need to share that love of Christ in a different way. We love you too much for you to risk your welfare, and this is what we can proactively do to flatten the curve. Jesus walked through walls to be with those who lived in fear and uncertainty (John 20:26). God in Christ will do so again in these present days. Out of deep concern for you, for the most vulnerable among us, and for the whole people of God, we are making several changes.
Your financial contributions remain important for the staff, agencies and institutions that depend on us to do their ministry amidst already heightened need. Two existing methods are mailing in your check, or have your bank send us a check through online bill payment options. A new online giving option has been added as well. This portal has all the protections of online banking, and works in a similar way. Visit our Donate page to set up an online account.
WORSHIP WITH US
Worship will still happen at 9 a.m. on Sunday mornings, but we gather through our radio broadcast and on Facebook Live. Listen to 1240 WOMT AM, livestream from their website (womtradio.com and click “listen live”), or watch on Facebook Live. Only skeleton staff and worship leaders will be present in the building itself. We are still the church, and we will be the church together using these technologies.

New Worship Services
In light of this period of isolation, additional ways to connect in worship are being streamed on Facebook Live.
Kristine leads Evening Bible Storytime—a great way for young and young at heart to enjoy music and a Bible story—Sundays at 6:45 p.m.
Join Stephanie on Thursdays at 8 p.m. for Music and Meditation: a time to let go of the burdens of the day, and be filled with God's presence through song, scripture and prayer.
All choirs, Christian Education, fellowship and meal events are postponed until further notice. Pay attention for information and updates from group leaders. There are many ways to serve our neighbors and proclaim God’s love - they will just look different for a little while.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
It is important for us to stay connected with our brothers and sisters in Christ. As we adjust to holding worship and fellowship connections over new platforms, there are different ways for you to participate in the church's mission. Visit our Participate in Church page to see ways to share God's love right now.
