From the elders:

Chattooga county Commissioner and Sherriff’s offices are asking that all congregations suspend public gatherings for a minimum of two weeks.  In consideration of this, coupled with the continued pleas from health professionals, government officials, and the escalating threat of Coronavirus (aka. COVID-19) infection, we have decided to suspend ALL services until further notice.

We will continue to offer prayer, a lesson, and communion(via Facebook live).  We ask each member and/or family to facilitate the remaining items of worship in your homes.  At 11AM Sunday morning, Tommy will begin broadcasting.  He will lead us in a collective prayer and bring the sermon.  Afterwards, he will lead us in observance of the Lord’s Supper.   OnWednesday evenings at 7PM, Tommy will be conducting a Facebook live Bible study.

If you need communion supplies, please contact Tommy directly (he has the communion supplies in his possession). Responses (i.e. prayer requests) will be handled remotely by phone (please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the elders or deacons for assistance).  Should anyone desire to obey the gospel and be baptized, do not hesitate to let us know and we will gladly (and speedily) assist you.

These decisions have been among the most difficult an eldership would have to make.  We ask for your continued prayers, as you are in our prayers.  Remember, you can cancel a public gathering in a building, but you cannot cancel worship to God!  For those with the ability to do so, please make plans to assemble (albeit electronically) Sunday morning for a briefperiod of worship. Tommy has graciously offered to come to your home and gather your contribution, bring communion supplies, etc.  If you have any needs, please do not hesitate to let us know.
