How are you holding up? Is there anything you need? We’re four days into the president’s requested fifteen day social-distancing instructions, and, if you’re wired like I am, you might already be getting stir crazy. I’m grateful for all of you who’ve let me know that you’re praying for me and our church staff. no question that we need it right now! As I mentioned in an earlier update, this Sunday’s service will be online only. Below are some instructions on how to connect with us, how to respond if you need to talk with someone during the service and how to give online.
