We have created this hub for all the details related to programming changes due to the Coronavirus. We will update the content regularly, so be sure to check back often.
Please watch this update video from Pastor Josh & Jeremy. We wanted to take a moment to answer some of your questions.
Watch online- Sunday services have moved to online-only, and we hope you will join us for church @Home. We invite you to worship with us online at 8:30 am, 10 am, and 11:30 am.

Serving Our Community During This Crisis
As followers of Christ, we believe that in times of crisis we can serve those around us. We encourage you to be reaching out to those who might need assistance. There are many ways that we can be serving the elderly, families with kids out of school, etc.
- We encourage you as an individual or family to serve those around you.
- As a community group, use this as a great opportunity to serve those you know.
Need prayer? We have many people available to pray with and for you. Email email@example.com or call 203-255-3401 ext. 100 and leave a message. Someone from our prayer team will call you over the phone and pray with you.
Have a request? If you know of a need that the church might be about to help with, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interest in serving? If you are interested in serving by delivery food, or calling someone who wants prayer, please email email@example.com.
