Our sanctuary renovations continue to move forward.

Please note that, due to construction, 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship will be held in the Fellowship Hall until further notice.

The upper parking lot will be closed during the week due to construction but will be available on Sundays.  We suggest that you enter the church from New York Avenue during the week.  Thank you for your continued flexibility and cooperation during this renovation phase.  Please keep the church in your prayers as we go through this transition.
