Worship with us Online


Our nation and our world are experiencing something that we have not seen in our lifetime. The coronavirus pandemic has affected our schools, the way we work, the way we shop, and, yes, even the way we worship. Starting this Sunday, March 15, we will transition to two worship services at 8:00 am and 10:30 am. Both worship services will be online. We will not meet as a congregation in the sanctuary.
