We continue to make adaptations in our ministry due to COVID-19. While we are at a distance from one another physically, we know that we are Together in Spirit.
|At the one year mark of the pandemic, we note that we have been worshipping online since March 15, 2020. God has been faithful, joining us together in Spirit through these months. We are grateful for the creativity of our worship leaders, and the technical expertise of our AV team who has facilitated our ability to worship in this way!|
As vaccinations are increasing, and cases are decreasing (though still too many), the Healthy Church Team is considering the right timing and precautions for phasing back to in person worship.
We are grateful for the hope on the horizon, and will keep you posted on changes in worship opportunities.
Grace and peace,

Our Food Pantry is operating as a drive-thru. Guests remain in their cars while church volunteers using safety precautions (masks, gloves, and sanitizing between each delivery) bring their food. If you or someone you know needs food assistance, please come to the Food Pantry during our operating hours (Saturdays, 9:00–11:00 am), with something (a utility bill, etc.) that shows that you are a resident of Benton County. You can line up in your car in the south parking lot, and Food Pantry volunteers will assist you.
If you would like to volunteer, please use our new Sign Up Genius to register your volunteer dates. That way we can make sure we have no more than 10 people in an area (with distancing) at a time per CDC guidelines. Youth are welcome to volunteer and should sign up on the website as well.
Sign up for volunteer roles below:
Greeter (1) to greet clients in their cars and pass out clipboards
Loaders (2) to load food into car trunks
Sanitizer (1) to clean carts and clipboards after each use
Cart Fillers (10) to work in Fellowship Hall to fill carts with food
