From the beginning of this public health crisis, we have held up safety and unity as our top two priorities in making decisions about regathering. In recent weeks, the number of cases and hospital capacity numbers have been trending away from improvement. Because of this, we have made the decision to postpone our planned regathering on June 21.
This was not an easy decision and it was not made out of fear but with prudence and after much prayer and consultation. The staff and leadership of the church are unified in this decision and appreciate your continued support and prayers.
We will continue to pray over this situation as well as seek advice and guidance from public health officials going forward and we can not wait until we get to worship will all of you in person soon!

We thought this would be a perfect opportunity for the staff and volunteer teams to make any adjustments needed after learning for two weeks. On top of that, it is a pretty significant holiday weekend and one that our volunteer and church families can use to rest and reconnect.
That is impossible to say, but at this time we are going to continue to follow the guidelines of the CDC and local authorities. As our approach changes, we will update the church during our services and digitally on all of our platforms.
