Dear Church Family and Friends:


It has been awhile since we have communicated together about the virus.  With the Governor's mandate on face masks yesterday, I would like to clarify our stand as a church.  We are greatly thankful for your support, compliance, and ministry as we have strived to restart ministry and be consistent with state and health edicts and suggestions.  We understand our responsibility to the Lord, to government, and the body of Christ.  I Peter 2:12-14 is a good passage to read and comply to.


Having said that, we are requesting that all attendees wear face coverings to services.  Children under ten years of age and those with health issues are exempt.  Officiants of ministry are exempt.  We will not bar anyone from attending but will rely upon your conscience for compliance.  Thank you for your support of our church and for your participation.


Because He Lives,


Pastor Olsen


We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
