OTHER WEEKLY SERVICES

Sunday School Update:

The past number of months have presented us with many challenges in scheduling our weekly ministries. Our initial plan was to begin Sunday school in person with the start of the new year but, as a result of the restrictions imposed and church not being held in person until January 10th, the leadership has made the decision to postpone the start of in person Sunday school until the start of the next quarter which would be Sunday, March 7, 2021.

While we recognize the frustration this has caused we are greatly appreciative of the flexibility that our church body has shown during these difficult times and are greatly anticipating a return to these important ministries at the start of the next quarter. 

 

At this time we are not offering Wednesday evening bible studies or children's ministries. We are hoping to resume these ministries in the spring. 

Additional thoughts from our Pastors:

This plan we are using is not meant to be permanent, nor is it perfect. We are aware of the competing opinions in our community and on social media surrounding the pandemic. The leadership has chosen to err on the side of caution and ask that we not allow these situations to divide the church into factions and undermine what God desires to do throughout our community.

As your leaders, we want you to hear our hearts. Our mission remains constant: to preach the good news to those in need. We desire to posture ourselves as an invitational church and not as a church that is arrogant and better than other fellowships, nor as a church that feeds the flames of fear and panic. We want to be a healing community for people to find restoration in Jesus Christ.

We are praying for God's Spirit to bring an awakening to his people that will promote the good news to people in our surrounding regions. We hope that you will join with us in that prayer and that you will remain unified in partnering with us in ministry. Regardless of where you stand on all of the above, we love you and God loves you and the church has a mission to fulfill in every age. Let’s keep our focus on Jesus and the God we serve.

Pastors Jeff, Mark & Stewart
