Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6

Regatherings and Corporate Worship
The word “Church” literally means “the assembled gathering,” as such, it is vitally important for us to regather, but to do so in a way that is charitable, loving toward our neighbors, and in accordance with all governmental and ecclesiastical authorities. In keeping with the most recent Executive Order from the Governor; masks are optional for those who are fully vaccinated and social distancing is only required in the Children’s Chapel and in designated seats in the Transepts.
