Calling all sewers and even non-sewers. Our local healthcare workers are in need of face masks. We have attached 2 patterns that can be used HERE and HERE. If you can please help be the hands and feet of Jesus in this very tangible way, please contact the church office and we will have a team member retrieve them safely from you. Thank you!

Dear Church Family,
In a season of COVID-19, we face a rapidly changing reality. Day by day new information emerges, and the church adapts as a response. We are now being asked to shelter at home through Easter. What does this mean for the church? Sadly, it means that we will be cancelling all public worship (including drive-in worship) and all of our traditional Holy Week activities. This is how we love our neighbor. This is how we serve our community. I encourage us to settle into Lent and trust in the One who will bring resurrection.
I will post a message tomorrow both on Facebook and on our website. If you would like to have home church, I will be sending out an order of worship through constant contact. please call the church office and leave your email address if you'd like to be added to our mailing, 561-746-8116.
With abiding love of Jesus,

Due to Covid-19, all in-person activities are suspended. Although our church office is currently closed, our church staff will be checking the mail, checking voice messages, and paying bills. If you need assistance, please call the church office and leave a message, 561-746-8116.
In order to help our church family navigate this time, we will update our website and social media regularly. Although we have all been limited on what we cannot do, let's take time to consider what WE CAN DO.
*STAY CONNECTED! We will be uploading videos, devotions, music, and worship ideas regularly to our website and social media.
*CALL, TEXT, OR EMAIL a friend. Now more than ever it is great time to catch up with old and new friends.
*SPARE A SQUARE! Check on your neighbor or introduce yourself to a new one and make sure they have what they need (including toilet paper).
*READ SCRIPTURE or start a new habit of a daily devotion. YOU VERSION Bible App has lots of options to choose from for daily devotions. You can even create a private group with friends to discuss the daily reading.
*WORSHIP! Keep watching your email and the website for updates to our worship schedule. You can also find new ways to worship through a daily walk, quiet time, or music.
*PRAYER WALK. One of our talented church members has used her gift of gardening. Drive by and visit the prayer garden on the west side of the chapel building. You will find suggested scriptures to read while visiting the garden.
*CONNECT WITH US ON SOCIAL MEDIA. If you have not had the chance to connect with us yet, now is a great time to try something new.
