Starting this Sunday, coffee will also be available at the top of the west stairs by the elevator.
You can find the full list of up-to-date protocols on our site.

this Sunday’s worship
JUNE 13
3rd SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
“Trusting In God’s Capabilities Instead of Our Own”
Mark 4:30–32; 2 Kings 4:1–7
Why in the world would anyone want to limit themself to what someone else could give them, instead of what God could give them? You don’t have to settle for a sliver of pie. You can have as many pieces of the pie as you’re willing to believe for!
