There is something about our human nature that longs to connect with others.  There's something about the body of Christ that only feels right when we are gathered together in worship.  Gathering is a part of what we do.  As COVID-19 continues to dictate what the governor is allowing, we are doing our part to keep everyone safe and comfortable.  We have a disinfecting fogger.  The same equipment and process that the airlines are using.  We sanitize after every service and event to ensure everyone's safety.
