COVID Update/COVID Courtesy

The CDC says no masks required if you are fully vaccinated. Let us rejoice that we are single digits for caseloads in our Zip code, the lowest in the county. If you are fully vaccinated, masks are optional during the worship service as of this week. We are no longer required to wear a mask to church. However, if you approach an individual or family that is wearing a mask, it is COVID courtesy to wear a mask before approaching them. 

There will be a recording of the service (The prayers, scriptures, music, and sermon) posted to Pastor Curtis' You Tube channel after the service.

We keep an archive or our services here.
