Most congregations are gathering in a variety of ways for in-person worship and activities as public health circumstances allow in their local contexts, and most are continuing to offer livestreamed services and/or other online gathering opportunities as well. Please consult churches' websites and social media for their local schedules and program details.
Our "Find a Church" directory is available here.

During this time, ordinary channels for mental health may be disrupted and support groups, like 12-Step meetings, may not operate at the usual places and times. Those under quarantine, sheltering at home or feeling isolated or fearful may need additional support, and the risk of domestic violence may increase. Visit our Mental Health and Domestic Violence Resources page for links to support services.
