Our world is in the midst of a pandemic.
People are unsure of what the future holds.
People are afraid of losing their jobs, 
missing connections with others, worried about getting sick, 
and running short on resources.

People are dying, often alone.

A world consumed by fear, uncertainty, and death needs us to be instruments of the peace only God can give. 
And we are here for it. 

We are here for you.


FAQ’s as of October 22, 2020

When will we gather in person indoors for worship again?
Given the rising COVID numbers in Kalamazoo County and the number of churches across Michigan that have become points of COVID spreading, Council has decided to postpone the start of indoor worship. Your health and safety is our top priority and we feel gathering in large groups indoors is too big a risk under the current conditions. Council President Mike Preston will address the congregation and offer more information about this decision in an announcement during the Sunday morning live stream this week (Oct. 25).
