DURING THIS TIME of CORONA VIRUS giving of yourself is the greatest way to love God and to love your neighbor (our vision as a church). The Board of Deacons organizes ministry teams to provide care for the entire church family and often to the community beyond. These teams welcome participation from members and nonmembers alike. Training and support are enthusiastically provided!  For information please contact Rev. Jan Cook.
