NOTE: This page was published as a guide in returning to the church following CoVid-19 shutdowns. It is provided here only for archival purposes.

We are blessed to be able to gather as a church family again. Based upon the recommendations of the CDC, physician in the fellowship, and several others in health services we are putting these social distancing practices in place. These are temporary limitations that we each need to follow as a body of Christ. Please take notice of these temporary procedures. If you have questions, please call 336-996-6880 or email us. You can still join us on our Live Stream at or in person following these practices.
