Offerings, Sharing the Peace, & Greeting Lines

Thank you for your continued generosity during this time of worshiping apart. Because of this, we have continued to adapt to the new ways God is calling us to "Make Disciples. Live Faithfully. Serve Others."


The offering plates will resume being distributed during the worship service.

Or, you can donate online anytime!


During the Sharing of the Peace, you are now invited to shake hands, give fist or elbow bumps, etc.

Please be respectful if others prefer to simply wave!
