Yes, we are having church in person! Since the beginning of May 2020, we have been having church in person. Our service times are Sundays at 9 am and 11 am and on Wednesdays at 7 pm. Nursery and children's church is available during every service. Spanish translation is offered on Sundays at 11 am, Wednesdays at 7 pm, and for special services. We also offer a variety of Sunday School classes on Sunday mornings.
During 2020, when Governor Greg Abbott's executive orders were in place, the face covering requirement and mandate was NOT mandatory for churches. Since then, Governor Abbott has issued a further executive order prohibiting governmental entities in Texas — including counties, cities, school districts, public health authorities, or government officials — from requiring or mandating mask wearing. Governor Abbott has also signed into law House Bill 1239 which bans state agencies and officials from issuing orders that “close or have the effect of closing places of worship in the state.”
We continue to take any necessary precautions to make sure that everything is clean. There are plenty of seats in the auditorium, so you can sit where you’d like to. If, for any reason, you or a family member in your house gets tested for COVID-19, please remain home and do not attend church or school until you receive your test results. If you or any family member in your house tests positive, please quarantine for the recommended 14 days. After the recommended 14 days, you can return to church or school, IF you are not experiencing any symptoms. If you or anyone you know has Covid or early Covid symptoms, please visit this web site for early Covid treatment guidelines and information.
Every church service continues to be livestreamed. Praise God for a BIG BUILDING that’s now paid off with plenty of room for you and your family to safely attend church!
Below we have also linked to articles that provide truthful, factual information about Covid-19. Dr. Kelly Victory has also put together a special video for us on the truth about Covid-19 and children, masks, and social distancing. In these days, we must operate by truth and facts, not media misinformation. And we must also operate by faith, not fear!

Governor Greg Abbott's Order on Face Coverings
Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order GA-29 says on page 2, “this face-covering requirement does NOT apply to the following: (9) any person who is actively providing or obtaining access to religious worship, but wearing a face covering is strongly encouraged.” The governor’s executive order says “strongly encouraged” but it does NOT say a face covering is required or mandatory for religious worship. Further, his executive order GA-28 says: “1. There is no occupancy limit for the following: (b) religious services, including those conducted in churches, congregations, and houses of worship.”
