COVID-19 Updates

As we are seeing the pandemic minimizing and we are gradually returning to our “normal” again, we welcome all of you to join us in the sanctuary to wor- ship as a church family. The parlor has allowed us to social distance during the time it was necessary. As the scripture in Matthew 18:19-20 says “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them”. The book of God’s spirit binds us together as one during worship. When God’s children are gathering to worship together, it is a great avenue to learn and grow in our faith.
