Information for Sunday, December 6th, 2020

With this week's news from the Diocese of Mississippi that we will be suspending in-person worship at this time, a few things on our schedule have had to change.  Therefore please see the updates below. As I said to you in my letter yesterday, I know we will weather this challenge with Faith, Hope, and Love, just as we have the rest of the difficulties that have come before. God Bless you, and stay safe!

Peace+
