Special Announcement


The Contra Costa County office of health has suspended all non-essential meetings and meetings of more than ten people.  Therefore, our Wednesday and Sunday ministries have been suspended until April 8.  However, you are invited to join us on Facebook Live on the church’s page every Sunday morning at 11:00 for worship.  Our service will happen, just on line and not in person.  If you need any errands run or help due to this crisis, please contact Pastor Ted.  We would also appreciate you giving on line to keep our ministries supported.  You can go to the “give” link on this page.  We look forward to worshiping with you in person again soon.
