FAQ

How do I continue to give?  
We will continue to have several online giving options available for your convenience.  
Click to see all giving options.

What is available for my children and students during this time?
Our Youth and Children’s ministries are going to provide you with all that we can to help you disciple your children, as well as provide some much needed community over the coming weeks.
You can expect weekly resources available to you including downloadable and printable materials for children and youth.  

Will Groups continue to meet?
While we know that the CDC has specifically asked large groups not to meet, it would also be quite difficult for people to meet in smaller groups in homes and living rooms while maintaining the
recommended six-foot-distance. Therefore, we are working on equipping groups and group leaders to utilize a digital experience rather than continuing to meet and gather in person.
Community is more important than ever, and we are going to provide group leaders with resources and training to best use technology to maintain community with one another.
Email Pastor Wayne to get connected to a group! 

What is the plan for the Deaf Congregation?
Pastor Bob will be meeting with the leadership team to make plans for the Bible Fellowship, Worship and Wednesday Night Bible Study for the Deaf Congregation.  
Once plans are made he will be in touch regarding changes specific to you. Look out for an email from Pastor Bob in regards to future communication and plans.

We know that some of you and some of your teenagers may be trying to process all that is going on with Covid-19
