APART

  • Our community, nation, and world have been disrupted in ways no one saw coming. But as a community, Ohioans have done what we NEEDED TO DO in order to reach a point where we can start doing what we WANT TO DO…gather again.

 

BUT TOGETHER

  • In an effort to continue living on mission, being flexible, and communicating, we have prayerfully put together a FOUR-PHASE PLAN for the COMEBACK. Every effort is being made to ensure that each phase is prepared to be in unity with our local leadership, District leadership, medical professionals, CDC recommendations, and the heartbeat of our church family.

Stay Connected.
