News & Announcements

As we return to worshiping in the same space together again, please review the safety guidelines outlined below: 

If you do not feel safe coming back just yet, we understand! We are committed to this process with an abundance of caution and care for all. The following guidelines have been discussed with leadership from SPR, Trustees, Worship, Custodian & the Pastor. As we continue to move forward, some of the following guidelines will fall away. Some will remain as we live into our “new normal”. We will continue to hold one another in prayer and look forward to our reunion. The weekly message will continue through Facebook Live.
