COVID Update 3-1-22

As you probably know, the indoor mask mandate in IL has expired.  Therefore, we are no longer requiring masks for those attending services.  We will continue to make them available at the doors for anyone who chooses to wear one.  We are thankful for everyone's patience, flexibility, selflessness, graciousness and cooperation!
