The recent Coronavirus outbreak has affected our ability to meet in person.

With the uncertainty in the world, now is the time to connect. We may not be able to meet in person, but technology has given us a way to encourage and be there for each other.

Our midweek Communities of Grace are currently meeting through a Virtual Zoom call. Using Zoom is simple. You simply click the link provided below to join the COG.

You can also download the Zoom application on your laptop or smartphone for free - allowing you to join the COGs from the app.
