Beginning 05/10/2020, we will be holding socially-distanced worship services at 10am and 6pm.  Per order of the Governor of Alabama, all attending families must sit at least 6' from each other.  Furthermore, our building capacity will be limited to 200 persons, which is less than 50% of our normal capacity of 570.  As soon as the COVID-19 danger has passed, our plan is to resume normal worship services as quickly as possible.  Please watch this banner, as well as our FaceBook page, for more information as it develops.  To reach us directly, please email or phone us and one of the elders or deacons will get back with you as quickly as possible (contact information is below).

Recognizing, Repenting, Restoring

Theme: examining and resolving a history of sins in the life of a church.

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. ~ Revelation 2:5

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
