INSPIRE CHURCH RE-OPENING STRATEGY

We want you to know that you and your families health and safety is incredibly important to us! We also want you to know that INSPIRE CHURCH CAN'T GUARANTEE your safety during this time! That being said we will be working very hard to offer an environment for you and your family that is as safe as possible. If you're sick, stay home! If you are considered High risk we would encourage you to pray about continuing to worship online during this season but we believe it's very important for everyone to have the right to make the best decision for their individual families! We are committed to following CDC guidelines for health and safety to the best of our ability! Thanks for your understanding as we walk through these phases together! God Bless you and your Family! Please continue to check our website for updates and service information.
