No Need for Signups

Our first weekend of gathering again for worship here at Evergreen Bible Church was June 13-14 and we were concerned about being able to stay under our 50-person limit.  Since then the limit has been raised to 85 people per service and will go even higher when Clark County is approved for Phase 3.

The Leadership Team (LT) met a week ago to discuss what God would […]

Building a New Boat

I am still astonished at the way coronavirus seemingly came out of nowhere and blew a hole in our boat, the good ship Evergreen. On the first weekend in March we were acknowledging this viral threat seemed to be a legitimate threat and then six days later we canceled all onsite gatherings until further notice. […]
