We all need encouragement to be prepared for the fallout of the shelter in place experience. It will have an effect on our congregants both personally and financially.

Let’s reach out to one another, call on the District staff for assistance, and share prayer requests with one another.
We are not alone!

Currently, we are not aware of any confirmed cases of COVID-19 either in any of our district churches or on the campus of Simpson University.
