In light of concerns over the coronavirus and in accordance with requests by the Governor’s office, Word of Life Baptist Church has cancelled Sunday services, but will live-stream a service featuring a message from Lead Pastor, Scott Joy, on Sunday.

Pastor Joy said that staff have made the decision to cancel all Sunday services, as well as all weekday activities and programs, for the next two weeks (March 15- 28, 2020).

During this time, Word of Life will provide a modified Sunday worship service online each Sunday.  You can join us live at 10:45 am via our YouTube channel at youtube.com/WordofLifeBaptistChurch.  Each service will remain available for on-demand viewing afterward. 

Pastor Joy said Word of Life staff is sensitive toward other congregations, but wanted to offer everyone an option to hear a church service if they are unable to get out.
