We are not gathering in person right now, but we will be doing a livestream service on Sundays. We take seriously the words of Hebrews 10:24-25, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” But in light of ...
