A message from Pastor Goodrich
Our church leadership has decided, after much prayer, reflection, and consultation, to continue to temporarily suspend on site worship services on Sunday mornings until further notice. Moving forward, we will have worship & bible studies through our live stream. This allows you to access the programs from home with your family. Although it is the media's job to report on the outbreak, fear becomes the popular response. But this epidemic also gives our church a great opportunity to bring word of God's peace and protection into the lives of people, and allowing us the chance to pray for them. We want an educated approach to our reaction, and we don't want to lose sight of the fact that our God is above all things, including viruses! Be cautious in your daily lives and listen to people voicing fear. Then pray for/with them and for the aid of the Holy Spirit so you can speak the grace and comfort of God in their lives. 1 Peter 1:13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

While fear can be a community attacker, we want to respond with rational thought, and the steadfast belief that the sovereign God of all creation loves us.
