Church Office

Staff are slowly transitioning from working almost exclusively from home to a combination of working from home and at the church office. Right now, office hours are by appointment until a routine is established. You can still meet and reach out to our staff by following this link.


Most of our important congregational documents are stored in the online church “file cabinet.”  If you are looking for a document, it probably lives there.  You can browse through it by following this link.

It takes a lot of people to operate and govern a congregation our size.  The vision, mission and strategic planning are their responsibility with congregational support.  To learn more about our governance have a look at the documents in the file cabinet.


Updated June 24, 2021: Groups can now meet in the building by following these guidelines!. 
Sunday services will remain online through the summer since all the logistics for these services were set up to be remote, before most restrictions were lifted. We are looking forward to providing our first official in-person service on the first Sunday of our new service year, September 12 at 10:00 AM. This will be a multiplatform service and will include an online option. There will be separate guidelines for Sunday services – those are being drafted – and will be available later in the summer. There will also be guidance provided should conditions change and we need to pivot again to meet those, if needed.

Sometimes members and friends want to get a copy of a sermon or listen to a service again.  To listen to a recent service, you will need login information to protect the Joys and Sorrows shared in the service.  That login information can be gotten from the office.  Please follow the links to the right to access these materials.  Another resource of learning and education is our Joy Library. That can also be found on the Archives links.
