Please take note:

*The prepared meal and beverages will be served in prepackaged containers rather than buffet style to ensure the health and safety of all.  Lunch will be provided at no cost. However, we encourage you to give an offering to our cooks, the “Man with a Pan” United Methodist Men to support their mission work in our church and community. An offering box will be provided for your donation. If you are making your gift by check, please issue it to “Man with a Pan”

Due to technical limitations, there will not be live-streaming or recording of this service.  Please feel free to worship along with one of our Archive services, located on our Contemporary Worship and Traditional Worship pages, if circumstances prevent you from attending.

Dear Church Family, Friends and Visitors,

In the midst of all the upheaval that COVID-19 is causing, it has been so encouraging to see our church rising to the occasion and reaching out to our community. Today I heard it said that the church shines her best when the times get their worst. We are blessed to have such a strong vibrant church, especially as we encounter new challenges together.

As your church, we are adapting daily to be the best version of Christ’s body we can be; looking at creative ways to connect and meet needs while doing so in a wise and responsible manner. Our offices will remain open during normal hours, and SOS will continue on a limited basis.
Worship services in the building will follow CDC guidelines on Social Distancing and Mask Wearing.  As the health of our precious members is of paramount importance to us, we are also offering online streaming of each of our two services; accessed from our website and/or our Facebook page. You can watch from your home and still worship as a family (The services will remain online as a recording for later viewing.  See Links Above).
If you haven’t already, please contact the church to subscribe to our “email blast” for the latest news pertaining to our church. Also, navigate to and like our Facebook page for more (see links below)
In His Grace,
Pastor Michael Miller
