At this time as COVID-19 cases begin to slowly recede from an all-time high, President Biden has told us that the pandemic death toll is likely to reach half a million by the end of February. For this reason, as we wait for widespread vaccines this winter it seems best to keep as much distance as possible among our staff. Until conditions improve, we will continue to produce Sunday worship and all our programs from home. We remain highly tuned to updates from Governor Cooper, Dr. Mandy Cohen, the CDC, the new Administration, and now more than ever, Dr. Fauci.

As we near the one year mark of being so far apart, social distancing is taking its toll. If you find yourself sinking, or realize that you're thinking odd thoughts, please reach out to your doctor or therapist, a trusted friend, our wonderful Pastoral Care Team, or any of the ministers. This is really hard. And we are here to help each other find what we need in order to get through this.
