Sunday Worship Latest Info & Video Link

September 3, 2021: We are currently meeting in-person for worship every Sunday morning at 11:00am in the main sanctuary. Due to the rising COVID numbers here in Mitchell County, Session has voted to require all individuals wear masks while in the building. Additionally, Session voted to pause all choirs and group singing during Sunday worship. They will continue to monitor the local numbers and reevaluate as necessary. The link to our latest Sunday service is below and also posted on Facebook late Sunday afternoon. If you would like to receive a link by email, please contact the church office. Thanks to all for your patience and dedication.
