Alert: Email Phishing Scams

Occasionally congregants have been receiving emails claiming to be from the minister or board, asking for favors, money, or gift cards. This is a very common form of internet fraud.
The church related emails are safe and have not been hacked. This is a practice called “spoofing” when someone uses a fraudulent email and covers it with a legitimate one. It can look very convincing. However if you scroll over the email address you will see that it contains a different address. The minister will only ever email from
If you receive any requests from someone from the church, asking for money or other forms of financial assistance, whether by email, text message, or other electronic means, know that it is fraudulent. Please ignore it, and do not send any money, gift cards, etc.
Under no circumstance would anyone from the church ever request this form of assistance from any of you outside of our annual stewardship drive.
