Helpful links & Information
As a church with many small business owners, we want to make sure that our members are aware of available resources and assistance. If you're a small business owner, you'll also find resources at the local, state, and federal levels. We are highlighting a few that may be helpful during these challenging times.
As members, we can also support small business right now by ordering take-out from local restaurants or buying gift cards for future use.
More than ever, now is a time for us to support and lean on our church community and local communities.We hope that this challenging time might become an opportunity to also strengthen our relationships and build each other up.
