Effective September 1, 2021, when the Positive Test Rate in Durham County stays below 3.0% for 2 consecutive weeks, we will offer an in person worship option on Sundays again. We will reevaluate the numbers in 6 weeks (by October 15th).  The building remains available to the other groups that use the building "at their own risk" while following the city and county COVID guidelines for wearing a mask.  Thank you.  This is hard for everyone, so stay strong, be patient, give yourself & others grace, and God Bless.

Together Campaign


Money committed to the Building Renovation.

On May 31st, 2021, a resounding 76% of the voting members voted in favor of taking out a loan so that we can build the first two phases of the renovation at the same time.  We are now working with the architect to make these goals a reality:

  • the building will better reflect God's mission
  • people of all abilities will be together in the building, this includes an elevator and new accessible bathrooms
  • the band led worship service and choir led worship will be together in a more flexible Sanctuary
  • more space for comfort-giving ministries

More information in the members section.

If you have not already done so, you can still mail your intent card into the church office.  Every donation will make a difference, as we build out God's Mission TOGETHER.
