While our recent gatherings are a little bit different than they have been in the past it has been good to be in God’s house with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

Please make yourself familiar with the protocols and precautions we have put in place and join us for worship. This document has been updated in light of recent developments.  We ask that you would please wear a mask in compliance with the guidance of our governing authorities.

Worship Service Protocols – Updated July 23, 2020

We thank you for your prayers, your patience, your understanding, and support, as we give thanks for the fellowship of believers.  The church leaders will continue to discuss how to adjust our protocols according to the guidelines provided to us.

“I rejoiced with those who said to me, let us go to the house of the LORD.”

– Psalm 122:1

Note: You may bring your personal hymnal, if you so choose, to use for worship as the church hymnals have been removed for cleaning purposes.  You may also bring your own chair cushion to sit on – if needed – as the pew cushions have been removed for cleaning purposes.  


Online Worship Services Available 

If you are unable to join us for in-person worship we would like to encourage you to join us online.

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess for he who promised is faithful.  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.  Let us not give us meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:22-25.

While we may be unable to meet together in person as much as we are used to, may we continue to find ways to meet each other through the gift of technology that God has blessed us with.  May God bless us as we call each other on the phone and pray for one another.  May God bless us as we make use of online resources.  May the Lord bless us as we strengthen the family altar at home.  May the Lord bless us as we encourage and reach out to our brothers and sisters in Christ and as we reach out to the world with the light and life of Jesus.

This is the unwavering truth of the gospel.  God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  The Lord in his love sent Jesus to be our substitute and our sacrifice.  Jesus came to be our brother so that we might be one with the Father.  He has given us peace with God and peace for our daily lives.  As the perfect Lamb of God, Jesus has cleansed us from our sins with his blood as he gave himself as a sacrifice for all sin.  He has washed his children in the pure water that is Baptism and has called us to be his own. He has blessed us with faith and with the Holy Spirit as he has given us His Word. He has promised to be with us always and to watch over our comings and goings both now and forevermore.  He has promised that one day we will see him face to face and we live with him and all God’s people forever.

Let us draw near to God in these uncertain times and hold unswervingly to the sure and certain hope that we have in Jesus, for he who promised is faithful.  He who created us and has redeemed us will also preserve and sustain and strengthen us in the days ahead.

A Prayer for Peace in Time of Heightened Health Concern

Gracious Heavenly Father, Creator and Preserver of all things, we come before Your throne of grace on behalf of our families and friends, ourselves and all in our world who feel the fear of contracting a new disease that is spreading throughout the world. Strengthen our bodies and spirits, that we might be spared this sickness. Give wisdom and knowledge to doctors, nurses and all who provide care for the sick and suffering as well as to our world’s leaders who bear responsibility for their citizens. If it is Your will, heal those who are suffering from infection and bring the spread of this virus to a swift end. Throughout all days of trial, remind us of Your great love and the forgiveness and salvation earned for us by You Son, Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
