COVID-19 Update

The elders have been made aware of a person who tested positive for the coronavirus this week. This person was wearing a mask and did not experience any signs of symptoms on Sunday. We have informed the individuals who have been directly exposed. Services will continue as planned tomorrow. Our desire is to keep you aware as we gather information, and we kindly ask you to continue to wear a mask and be careful.
