It goes without saying that this is has been a trying time for us all…from COVID shutdowns to race relations to school closures to online-only church…and the list goes on.

Not meeting in-person for months has been hard on us all, yet we believe it’s time to restart our in-person gatherings again. We hope you are as excited as we are about this!
