  • Saturday Worship Services will be at 5:00 pm only (no 6:30 pm service).
  • Sunday Worship Services are as regularly scheduled (8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 am).
  • OMNI (preschool) for ages birth–4 years (not entering Kindergarten) available each service except for the 8:00 am Sunday service.
  • Children and Youth entering grades K–12 will not meet for their regular programs.
