COVID-19 Response

We believe that the Church often shines its brightest when there is crisis. It is an incredible opportunity to point people to Jesus. We know all of you are weighing questions about safety and how do we respond and what do we do. We think that there’s wisdom in following the guidance of our State and Federal government. We also know we are a Spirit-led and Spirit-filled people. He is our protector and is always with us. Please be praying for the quick recovery of those affected, pray for healing in our land, and Church let us be the people of the Kingdom. Let us love our neighbor above ourselves, let us take a position of compassion and caring. Let us be the light we are meant to be. 


With love in Christ,


Benson Short

Lead Pastor
