UPCOMING EVENTS

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

We are having our traditional candle-lighting service on Thursday, December 24 beginning at 6:00 pm. Jesus called us “the light of the world”. We will light our candles as a symbol of the light we as believers are to bring to a darkened world. Join  us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. There will be NO service on Wednesday, December 23 or December 30.  On Sunday, December 20, R.O.C.K. Kids and nursery will sit with their families in church so our staff can enjoy the service before Christmas. Nursery will be open but not staffed. There will be NO Sunday School or donuts on Sunday, December 27, church service will remain the same.

Enjoy time with your families but remember the Reason for the Season!

Mailboxes are in the lower foyer. We have used them in the past for anyone wanting to pass out Christmas cards or gifts without the added expense of postage. There is a numbered sheet listing all the members of our church. Please note that the numbers have changed slightly from last year. We have also placed next year’s tithing envelopes in the boxes for your convenience. If you did not receive a box and would like to, please see Pastor Jeff.

COVID-19 Information

In this time of COVID, we wanted to keep everyone updated on what has been outlined by the CDC in response to the COVID virus for those who test positive.

FROM THE CDC: 

Once an individual has tested positive for Covid, the return-to-work criteria are as follows:
(we are using this same guideline for return-to-church activities as it is the right thing to do)

  • Must be fever-free 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medications)
  • Respiratory and other symptoms have improved
  • It has been at least ten (10) days from the onset of symptoms.

Please let’s all do our part; if sick, stay home; if fevered, stay home and contact your healthcare provider for his/her advice.

We will get through this together!
