UPCOMING EVENTS


We are slowly reopening church activities!

Due to the recommendations of our elected officials and health care professionals many activities and events at the church are still suspended, but we are easing our way back into things. The events listed below ARE scheduled to take place. Session is in regular communication to constantly evaluate the situation.


Please feel free to contact the church if you have any questions, concerns, or fears during this time. We are here to help!


Food Pantry Distribution

Saturday, October 31st, 8:30 - 11am

There will be only this one distribution this year. If you know of someone with a need, please call the church and set up an appointment. 

The food pantry staff will take care of all the packing this time. Patrons will be contacted with instructions. We will need a few helpers on the day of distribution. 

We greatly appreciate all of the monetary and food donations we have received. Food donations are down, and we are accepting all non-perishable food items.

Thank you all so much for your prayers, donations, and help!
