Thank you for visiting our church web page! Given these unique times in which we live, the way we are doing ministry looks a bit different than normal, so please take a moment to read the following update.
In light of health concerns related to COVID-19 we are not hosting in-person worship services or other meetings at our church building for the present time. It is our prayer that by God’s grace things will improve and we will be back together again soon. In the meantime we want everyone to know that we are still carrying on the ministry of the church by providing worship and Bible study resources.In addition we are trying to stay as connected as we can through personal phone calls, and online group meetings. Also, our Mercy Committee continues to meet in their efforts to help those in need.
We chose to temporarily set aside our in-person meetings as a way to love and assist one another and our neighbors. We see it as doing our part to help reduce the spread of the virus in our community. Jesus teaches us to love one another as he has loved the church. He loved his people at great cost to himself, and he calls on us to do the same for one another.
God teaches us that he is both Creator of all things and Lord over all that he has made. Everything and everyone belongs to him and lives under his rule. Nothing escapes his notice, and nothing lies outside of his control (Ephesians 1:11). This includes coronaviruses. At the same time God also tells us that he is good and loving. The chief demonstration that this is true lies in his sending his Son who was willing to die in order to gain eternal life for all who embrace him and love him in return (Romans 5:8).
While none of us escapes the hardships of this present world, God is moving all things toward the day when the sighs, and pain, and tears of this life will be replaced by joy and gladness. And as we wait for that day to come, Jesus has promised to be with us to help us through the hardships (even pandemics) that we presently experience.
Our prayer is that God will be with you and your family during this time of uncertainty. While it may be uncertain for us, it is not so for God who rules over everything and so knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). It is our hope that you will trust in this God who has demonstrated his love through his Son Jesus. The promise is that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13).
