We will be needing an army of volunteers to be the hands and feet of Christ to reach out to the many who have and will be impacted by this pandemic. Please contact the Church Office if you would be willing to volunteer/serve in some capacity. In this time of social distancing, connection is vital. We can be purposeful in connecting via phone, email, social media or video calls to anyone who may need connection or is feeling isolated. Prayer There is one connection that social distancing cannot take away—Prayer. We can pray for those impacted by this situation, those on the front lines, and everyone facing fear or worry.
