EASTER DRIVE-THRU SERVICE CANCELLED

It is with sadness and regret that we announce we have chosen to cancel the Easter Drive-Thru Service. We value the safety of our community and had taken every precaution to create a plan that would ensure adherence to guidelines set forth. However, due to the evolving situation and recent updates regarding the Coronavirus, it became clear over the weekend that the best and safest thing to do was cancel the plan.

In doing so, we would like to express our immense appreciation and gratitude for everyone who worked so hard on the planning and preparation. We are grateful for all the shared excitement many of you expressed.

We will still be doing our online service as we have done the past couple of weeks. Please join us at todayschurch.com.

The church is cleaned on a weekly basis; and we will continue to practice diligence. We will be disinfecting all common surfaces that are touched by hands around the church building and the Student House. The Nursery, Toddler Room, and Promiseland classrooms are cleaned and disinfected weekly. Toys are washed and/or disinfected every week. Changing tables, switches, knobs, tables and all surfaces disinfected every week as well.
