Pastor Mark’s Letter

March 26, 2021

Hello Church Family,

Join us Easter Sunday, April 4th at 10am, as we celebrate our risen king, Jesus Christ.  This year we are offering three options for worship:  in-person (sanctuary), in-person (Fellowship Hall), and online.  For those attending in-person (Sanctuary), regular Sunday morning protocols apply.  However, we will allow for additional seating based on attendance.  For those desiring to worship in-person but not in the Sanctuary, livestream will be available in the Fellowship Hall with distancing and masks.  If you are unable to attend, we pray you will connect with us online.  Lastly, no matter how you join us, with hearts knitted together, we will celebrate the resurrection of our Savior as we endeavor to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Sincerely,
Pastor Mark
