3 Questions Video Series - A Weekly Video Series
We miss sitting and hearing each other's stories and thoughts in small groups. In fact, it's one of the places where we often hear God speak the loudest. With Covid-19 making that impossible for many, we wanted to bring a little of that sharing and connection to you. 3 Questions invites normal people to sit down and answer 3 main questions (along with a couple steps at the start and end to help peak our awareness) about God, Life and themselves. Not experts or authorities, these are normal people sharing the beauty and pain of their normal lives and we think that is usually where God likes to speak to us most.

Your elders, deacons, and church staff are working hard to on ways to continue church life now that public worship and meetings have been suspended for the foreseeable future.
Here is how you can stay connected until we are able to resume our regular worship and program schedule:
Let us all be in prayer for our church, our community, and our world, seeking out God’s healing and strength as we move through these days, and please keep in touch with the church and with your neighbors!
