We have become quite creative in finding ways to safely gather, as many of us have become experts at socializing by ZOOM, WebEx Meeting and MS Teams.

Accepting the reality that we all must wear masks and continue reasonable social distancing, gathering as we did pre-pandemic is still several months away. Yet, many churches, ministries and Christian entertainers are conducting virtual events, allowing us to socialize safely.

We urge you to check the website of your church and any of the ministries listed HERE for virtual events that may be of interest to you.
