Congregational Engagement

We provide safe ways for our congregation to stay engaged with the church, with church members, and most of all with God.  During this period of COVID we gather on Zoom, teaching one another new recipes, playing trivia games, and come together for a shoulder to lean on when needed. We are looking forward to safe and fun outdoor gatherings as the weather warms. Corn hole matches, fun walks through the city, and picnics are to come.
