5. How can I connect with people? How can I help? Who needs help?

  • The simple answer is, call each other. Each of us are called to “BE” the church, it is vital we remain connected. Reach out, encourage others, and receive encouragement. No one should feel alone or have an unmet need. Make phone calls so we can hear each other’s voice.  Let’s do this together!

  •  We are now offering access to our online digital directory.  Email us at, use the subject “Digital Directory”. You will be sent an email invitation from servant keeper and instructions on setting up your own member portal and access. This process is to ensure your security.

We hope this is helpful to you. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to ask us. We love you and we hope to see you soon!
