The decade of the 2020’s began with high expectations of the celebration of our 200th anniversary as a church. A committee was formed and plans began to be made for events leading up to March, 2021.

But in March, 2020, we found ourselves in the grips of a world wide pandemic! We, as was the rest of the world, are still having to deal with COVID 19! Because of measures taken by the government to limit the spread of the virus, we had to discontinue in-person worship services.

Fortunately, we already had the technology available to live stream our services. We owe a debt of gratitude to James Coker and Luke Martin for their willingness to give of their time to make live streaming possible.

We began limited in-person services in May, 2020. Programs were gradually added until we are now offering most of the ministries that were available prior to the beginning of the pandemic.
