Final Comments: As a church, we remain committed to loving those both outside of our community and within our church family during this pandemic. Therefore, we refuse to allow Covid-19 to become a point of division or contention within our fellowship. Each family is encouraged to follow wise steps of safety for their family. We recognize there will be different levels of comfort and the ability to participate in church activities at this time. “This too shall pass” is our prayer.
