The office is open Monday-Friday 8:30 am-3:30 pm.  Masks required and practice social distancing when in our buildings and if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as a fever, coughing, and shortness of breath please return another day when you are feeling better.

Come as you are and stay in your car!!!  We have considered the input provided after our last communication with you and direction from Bishop Ken Carter. We believe that a Drive-In service is the only type of gathering we can safely have at this time. Pastor Carolyn will be wearing a cordless microphone and there will be 4 large amplifiers placed outside.  We will not be using an AM/FM transmitter, so cars will not need to be running. Car windows or sunroofs will need to be open to hear and possibly catch a breeze. It truly will be experimental.

  • Since the service will begin promptly at 9 AM, plan to arrive 15-30 minutes ahead of time so that the ushers can get you properly parked. Please follow the direction of the ushers. Cars will be parked in “every other” space.
  • You will need to stay in your car, so masks are not required.
  • You may want to bring your own water or coffee. Keep in mind that bathrooms will not be available.
  • You will be able to hand in your offering at the end of the service by dropping it in a bucket as you leave.

Because the electrical equipment and keyboard are going to be outside, we will not hold a service in the rain. The decision will be made at 7 AM if we are “GO.” If there is need to cancel, it will be posted on the church’s Facebook page before 7:15 AM and an email will be sent out to the Google Group list. If we do not have an email address for you, call the church office, 797-4416, and get on the “Google List.” Please “friend” the church on Facebook so that you will receive notifications. We will continue to videotape our service and post it online by noon on Sundays. God bless you and keep you safe from all harm!



“Where there is no vision, the people perish . . .” Proverbs 29: 18a. The Bible’s direction is clear: we need to have a dream, a vision, a picture, a direction from God or we perish in the chaos! Our Vision—New life with God; deepening our Christian discipleship.

We also need a goal; something to aim at; a focus for our God-given gifts and energy. In short, a mission that calls to us. Our mission–sharing God’s joy by serving the community, each other and God.
