Worship On Wednesday (W.O.W.) is cancelled due to inclement weather & curfew that is in place for Cumberland Co.
Cumberland County Board of Commissioners issued a State of Emergency effective Monday at 3:30 p.m. in preparation for Hurricane Florence.
The declaration includes a curfew that will be effective from sunset to sunrise beginning Wednesday, Sept. 12, as a precaution in the unincorporated areas of the county.

We recommend that you finish preparations no later than Wednesday evening, Sept. 12,” said Assistant County Manager Tracy Jackson, who is the County’s interim Emergency Services Director.
