This is a crazy time to be alive! But it's a time to explore new ideas in bringing the gospel to people.

With the government restrictions regarding the Coronavirus, we have had to cancel our normal in-person church meetings and rely solely on our online gathering instead. We do have experience in this area. If you go to the Sermons page, your will note that we have YEARS of church services recorded and available at the click of a button. Our technology isn't bleeding edge, but for years we have streamed our services and recorded them for replay later from our website.

Starting Sunday, March 22, we will be focusing on Virtual Church -- a Sunday morning broadcast into the homes of not only our congregation, but anyone in the world who chooses to join us on the Internet. Our service will be available from this website, from the Christian World Media website (our streaming provider), and from our Roku channel (see the bottom of our Virtual Church page for the link to install it on your Roku). In addition, the sermon portion will be broadcast from our Facebook page as well (by Facebook rules, we can't include the recorded music during worship).

Although we know what it takes to stream our live services, this will be a new experience for us as we focus on the broadcast, instead of on the congregation in the building. We'll be learning as we go, so give us a little grace to improve things over time. We're more than happy to listen to constructive criticism as well, so leave us comments here or in the Chat Box during the service.

We're glad you're here, and we hope you will stay with us as we learn to do this better each week! Join us Sundays as we worship the Lord!
