During these difficult times, as we practice social distancing, we continue to be 'church' - the living and loving body of Christ. We are learning together about new ways to foster community, care and support during this time.
We have transitioned to online forms of ministry to make connecting with us easier during this time. This website page is devoted to gathering resources that can offer support.
May God's peace and love surround you during these days!
- Blessings, Rev. Lionel
