Icy roads, sidewalks, and parking lots on Sunday morning. Please use extreme caution!

Although several other downtown churches are remaining closed due to ice in parking lots and sidewalks, we have decided to open as scheduled for those who want to come to worship.

Please be aware of icy conditions in parking lots and on sidewalks, and use extreme caution in getting into the church from your cars. 

While temperatures are expected to be above freezing in the morning, we do value your safety above all. If there is any question whether it is safe for you to come to church,

please feel free to join us online via live stream as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our Media Ministry bringing Sunday morning worship to you on just such occasions!
