Notice From Pastor Patti Regarding

Health Care Precautions In The Church

In light of the Coronavirus (COVID – 19) pandemic, I am encouraging the church to pay particular attention to this challenge by taking any precautionary measures necessary in keeping yourself and others safe.  Please use the hand sanitizers that are available in both foyers when you enter and leave the building and as frequently as you deem necessary.  I am encouraging a “social distancing” by not shaking hands or participating in other greeting that brings you into a physical contact with others.  Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
In light of the most recent N.B. Health bulletin regarding precautions for groups of 150 or more gathering, I have cancelled the Creation Ministries presentation we had scheduled for the end of this month.

Vision Statement…..TELL – TEACH – TRAIN

We are committed to TELL the lost of the redeeming love of Jesus Christ, TEACH the Word of God and TRAIN men, women, youth and children to be Spirit-filled leaders in our world.


 

Connecting to God and each other

Coming together is a great way for each of us to grow in our faith. Reading our Bibles and praying are great ways to get closer to God, but each of us has important lessons to impart to one another. When we come together in fellowship, we teach each other things. God gives us a gift of learning and growing when we come together in fellowship we show each other how to live as God wants us to live, and how to walk in His footsteps.

Fellowship Makes Us Stronger

No matter where we are in our faith, fellowship provides us with strength. Being around other believers gives us the chance to learn and grow in our faith. It demonstrates to us why we believe and is the excellent food for our souls.
