Galveston's Online Church Service

In Person Worship Suspended

The Church Council, after studying the information from the Galveston County Health District, has suspended in person worship. Please watch our virtual worship services or sermon videos below.
Galveston County and Galveston Island are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases. Hospitalizations have increased and if case numbers continue to increase (as predicted) our health care system may be overwhelmed.  Because of this reality with the rapid community spread of the virus, in person worship is suspended so that our worshipers and guests will remain at home and remain safe.
Please continue to observe the proven mitigation methods:
          Wash your hands or sanitize your hands regularly.
          Wear a face mask.
          Practice social distancing.
Please watch for information for when in person worship will resume.
