Emergency Church Access
Our Session organized a group to facilitate the church going forward with emergency access for the community in case of disasters. We will open the church to assist the community with a place to stay and obtain a meal. We are also offering a place for First Responders to rest, get warm and have something to eat and drink.
The prayer chain is a dedicated group who prays for church members and their family and friends who are in need.
