“We are not holding services, but w are doing our best to stay connected while practicing social distancing.”

Willment said he is spreading the church is spreading message through facebook and U-tube as well as doing a great deal of phone ministry.

“The congregation is doing very well,” he said. “We have the faith that God is in control. My phone is very busy,”he added.
