Covid-19 Information

Sunday services and other group meetings are all canceled until further notice to protect the health of our congregation and the general population from the danger of the Coronavirus.

In light of current health concerns we encourage common hygiene practices and consideration for the well-being of yourself and all in our community but especially those who are high risk.

Our church leadership is monitoring official recommendations and has implemented contingency plans. We will do our best to keep members informed about current modifications and future changes to our ministries.

Below, you can find general health information, church messages, and links to faith resources. Watch emails to members and social media about further decisions and how to care for each other.

For pastoral care contact Pastor Stefan Munker on his phone, text, or by email.

Christ's peace be with you!
