COVID-19 Church Info
After consultation with Temple leadership and consistent with guidelines issued by BCA and the government, we will be closing the Church and Office to all activity, both public and private, through the end of April. Please note that this closure will include both Makuragyo and Funeral/Memorial Services until further notices. We will re-evaluate as the situation changes and through consultation with Temple, BCA and Government leadership, we will keep you posted as to timing for our ability to restart operations and services. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to myself or Reverend Motoyoshi.
