Due to precautionary measures put in place today by South Washington County Schools, we will need to cancel our Sunday gathering planned for this coming Sunday, March 15.

Maybe take the time to catch up on one of Pastor Brett’s sermons in the Acts series that you’ve missed. Or if you missed any of our vision refresh sermons from January, maybe leverage some time on Sunday to watch one of those. Or, gather as a family, sing a few songs, and select a passage of Scripture on which too meditate together. Again, whatever might feel redeeming and refreshing for your family under the circumstances. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding! And please spread the word ...

This type of activity is good and we want to encourage each other to continue in it. We are called to ma...Keep Reading
