Officially the church has suspended services. HOWEVER, we are considered "essential" like grocery store, gas station or liquor store. So like last week, Pastor will be here at usual service times for individuals who wish to be present. The "Safer At Home" order does allow us to continue to do this as long as there are not more than 8 others here and we practice safe social distancing.
