Our Diaspora Takes a Break

Great news! 

We will be holding in-person worship in the Garden beginning June 14!  We continue to monitor the situation and hope to be able to use our facilities soon, while maintaining the highest possible standards of safety.

Those whose health is vulnerable are encouraged to take advantage of our Zoom and Conference Call options.

We have been approved for a grant to purchase equipment that will enable us to offer live-stream worship via Facebook Live or YouTube.  

We continue to request, for the sake of one another, the frequent washing of hands, the wearing of masks, and honoring "holy spacing" when out and about.  

Online worship resources are listed here.
