A final decision regarding worship will be announced around noon on Saturday, September 15, once an assessment of conditions is made.

Throughout this severe weather event, when the office is closed, church staff will work from home, monitor email, and communicate with members via telephone, text, and social media platforms as they are able.

We encourage you to heed all travel advisories to stay off the roads. Listen to/watch local news outlets for information about the storm and areas impacted. Shelters will be open throughout Durham for those unable to be safe in their own homes.

You are invited to use the Church Life app (if installed on your smartphone) to check-in with church members who live in your neighborhood to make sure they are okay.

Marilyn Hedgpeth has provided this PRAYER for encouragement.
