Join Us for Sunday Worship! 
 
Current Sunday Schedule
8:30 am & 10:00 am Worship Hours
 
We’re still operating on a modified Sunday Schedule. We meet in the sanctuary – and provide ‘Car Church’ in the parking lot via your FM car radio for those who would like to participate on-site, but social distance. We also upload the sermon each week, with both a video and an audio option.
 
We encourage you to choose what option is right for you because…
 
We love people and want to take care of you!

What’s Happening?
 
1. Schedules & Precautions – We’re pleased that COVID cases are decreasing in our state. As restrictions are lifted – hopefully in the near future – our weekly schedule and social-distancing practices will be modified. A mandatory face mask policy continues to be observed as requested by the state guidelines and to protect all those in attendance. To help us stay connected, Pastor Denny continues to communicate a 90-second message with church family each week using the “phone tree.” It is important for you to listen to those updated messages! These phone calls, and the church website, help to keep us all up-to-date. If you would like to be added to the calling list, please contact the church office.
 
2. Pastoral Transition – On Sunday, April 18, Pastor Denny and representatives from the Administrative Board and the Personnel Relations Committee were pleased to announce that the next Senior Pastor will be Pastor Mark Tinsley. Pastor Mark will begin serving as our pastor following Pastor Denny’s retirement in late July of this year. To learn more about Pastor Mark, click on this link. Or, to learn more about how the process of appointing a new Senior Pastor takes place within our denomination, please check out what Bishop Todd Fetters had shared in a congregational meeting held in August of 2020 – available on this link.
 
3. Campfire Church Is Back! Join us for another season of outdoor food and fellowship – around a campfire. We’ll be meeting again on the back lawn of the church for a light hot dog meal on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays of each month. Our next gathering is May 12th! A light hot dog meal will be served from 6-6:30 pm with a short Bible study to follow. Bring a chair, a drink and any other items that will make you feel more comfortable (jacket, mask, etc). Bible study will conclude at 7:15, and the campfire will be put out by 8 pm. Please feel free to bring kids, teens, neighbors and friends! Note: In case of inclement weather, schedule updates will be made via the ‘phone tree.’
 
4. Daily Bible Reading Schedule Each month, we post a Bible Reading Schedule on our website (see tab above). We encourage you to use this guide, or another resource, to keep you in God’s Word each week. A printed copy is available on the table in the church foyer. However, if you’d like a copy mailed to your home, simply make that request by contacting the church office. We’d be happy to get you a copy to enjoy in the days ahead.
 
5. OfferingWhether you attend worship services at the church property or online, you may still share your tithes and offerings. Gifts may be placed in the offering plates which are available weekly in the foyer. Or, they may be mailed to the church office (935 Jerusalem Chapel Rd) which will then be forwarded to our financial secretary in a timely manner. Or, you can hold onto your gifts until we’re back together in person at the church – or until you are comfortable joining us in the future.
 
6. Prayers & PraisesWhile we continue to adjust to an ever-changing and new way of doing things, we invite you to share any prayer requests or praises with us through the church office voicemail or by using the prayer request book in the church foyer. The pastors and others in the church would like to lift up your needs before the Lord.
 
~ We are not alone in this. ~
 
So, remember that even though we are still separated in distance – at least in part – we can still Be the Church in our own homes and community. Share a prayer, send a card, make a call. Reach out with God’s love to bless and encourage others. 
 
For our High Risk Population – 
Here’s an excerpt from a statement given by Bishop Todd Fetters when this began back in March of 2020. It still holds true today… “We know the coronavirus is especially deadly for elderly people, and for people with compromised immune systems. You know who those people are in your church. Be proactive. Tell them, “I know you want to be in church and that you’re not afraid of catching this virus. But we don’t want anything to happen to you. We encourage you to skip church on Sunday morning, just until this blows over.” Until we meet again. Please take care, and be safe!
