DISCLAIMER: As we transition back into the sanctuary, we ask that you keep in mind everything is not 100% complete. We already know there is the possibilty we may experience some technical difficulties and some features are not operational. We ask that you take this under consideration and be patient. We are grateful to be this far along and have the opportunity to move back into our beautiful sanctuary. We will be working as quickly and safely as possible to correct, install and continue to move forward. We just ask for your understanding, grace and willingness to "go with the flow."

ANY AND ALL UPDATES WILL BE POSTED AS THEY ARE NEEDED.

We hope to see you this Sunday!
