FIRST WORSHIP SERVICE ONLINE

April 4, 2020

Dear friends,

Our first ever online worship service last Sunday was a great reminder of Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” As we enter Holy Week, we hope that you continue to be reminded of the miracle of Jesus Christ, and that because of Him, we are never alone. Seeing everyone congregate online continues to brighten up our spirit and we hope that you all can join us tomorrow for Palm Sunday worship at 11 a.m. As we continue to have worship service online, we will provide you with the login information every Saturday afternoon. Go to our Worship Online page for instructions on how to join via video/phone conference by clicking here.

Blessings,

The Ministerial Team and the Board of Elders/Administrative Board
