Every  person’s health and safety are top on the list while doing this.  The worship center is set up for this, as the chairs have been moved to respect requirements for social distancing, masks  are mandatory, and the entire church is sanitized every week (a HUGE  THANK YOU to Doug Bergman and Eric Fifolt for  doing this!!!) We understand everyone is taking precautions, We just wanted everyone to know what steps the church has taken.
