Dear Faith Community,

The entire world is receiving a lot of information about COVID-19 and its impact on our lives, communities, economy and world.  It is important to know this information and heed the many hygiene practices that are being shared such as:

  • properly washing our hands,

  • covering our mouth when sneezing or coughing,

  • Social distancing,

  • and staying home from public places.

A Message to the Faith Community

We hope that you will join us and continue to pray with your community. Here's some ideas:

The Word tells us that where two or three are gathered that God will be in the midst of us.  We can make a difference.  Let's come together as people of faith and pray.
