"The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you;

He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Deuteronomy 31:8

How does the church respond to a global health crisis?

After a brief pause, in keeping with our state's recent "pause order," in-person worship services have resumed once again as of Sunday, December 13. However, for the time being, we are asking all attendees to wear their masks throughout the service in addition to observing proper social distancing. 


To allow for proper social distancing, every other pew is currently roped off in our sanctuary. We have also provided additional seating, as well as overflow seating in our Fellowship Hall.


In addition, in recognition of the fact that many are not yet comfortable attending in person, our services may also be viewed in the following ways:

  • Both live and on-demand on our Facebook page

  • Live in our back parking lot

  • On-demand beginning shortly following each service on our Vimeo channel

If you know anyone who could use a phone call from Pastor Riddle, please notify the church office at (989) 734-7621, or email
