Information Regarding Coronovirus
Coronavirus mitigation efforts worldwide have changed how we live and work and even worship. While we hunker down and do our best to keep the spread and impact at a minimum, we will be cancelling worship until further notice. We are monitoring the news and statements from the State of Illinois. I pray for your health and safety during these trying times and encourage you to worship with us on Sunday at 10:00 on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/alexisupc/

God's protection, love and grace be with you all.
