“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.

Pastor Jeremy said parishioners are on hand to assist others who need help getting groceries or prescriptions.
