Rev. Grace Gichuru

Office Hours: Mon.- Fri. 9:00 am- Noon


The Leadership of our church met on Tuesday November 17th via Zoom.  Of the items discussed was the safety of our Pastor, our members, our worship assistance, and our community in regards to Covid-19.  After much discussion, it was decided that we would suspend in-person worship until either the 1st of the Year, or until we are no longer considered to be in the "severe" on the Two Rivers Health Departments risk dial.  

We will be bringing you a virtual worship service via our Facebook page. It will continue to be live at 9:30 am each Sunday morning.  More information will be forthcoming as soon as it becomes available. We appreciate your patience as we are working to ensure that we can get virtual worship to all who wish to participate. Thank you all for your understanding, we know that this is definitely not ideal and not what we wanted to happen, especially heading into the Advent season.  PLEASE know that this was not a decision that was made lightly.  The conversation was emotional and difficult, but in the end, the decision was a unanimous one, that in order to "do no harm" as John Wesley said, this was the best and most effective way to keep from moving this virus around.  

 The leaders of our church appreciate your grace and understanding in these most challenging times. We pray for you all and look forward to a time when we can all be together again.  The church office will remain open and you are always welcome to call the office with any prayer requests or just to chat!! We'd love to hear from you.
