Easter Sunday & Normal Service

Home / Church / Easter Sunday & Normal Service

As part of our encouragement this week we wanted to once again share with you the hope we see as we cautiously move forward to return to “somewhat” normal on April 4th.

On April 4th, we will be returning to our normal service times; 9:00 AM for bible class and 10:00 AM for worship. Please continue to wear masks and remember to put your name tags on.

  • Bible Classes will resume for our children assuming we have teachers for that class or age group.
  • The auditorium class will be taught by Jared who will be bringing lessons on “Strengthening your Grip;” a class on remaining strong in the Lord.
  • The remote class will be taught by Clint who will be bringing lessons on “Christians in Real Life;” this class will teach how to cope with everyday living in this evil world and is intended for the YA/YF group.
  • We will be singing with a song leader from the song slides not from the Praise & Harmony slides.  Songbooks will not be available at this time.
  • Communion trays will not be passed, so please remember to pickup your communion cups as you walk in.
  • The contribution trays will not be passed, so please simply drop your contribution in the tray when you pickup your communion cups or continue to use the online giving system or simply mail in your contributions.  Thank you for being so faithful with this part of the Lord’s work!
  • The mailboxes will not be open as we continue to be concerned about such tight quarters.  We would anticipate that the mailboxes will remain closed until at least June 1st.
  • The remote area will be open and available for those who may want a bit more social distancing space.
  • For those not comfortable or ready to return to a crowded auditorium, we will be streaming both the auditorium class and the worship service.
  • The remote class will not be live streamed but may be recorded to upload at a later time. 

Sunday evening worship service starts at 6pm

  • We will be singing with a song leader from the song slides not from the Praise & Harmony slides.  Songbooks will not be available at this time.
  • Communion will be served for those who desire; no trays will be passed so please remember to pick up your communion cup when you walk in.
  • Richard or one of the other ministers will be bringing a lesson.
  • For those not comfortable or ready to return to a crowded auditorium, we will be streaming the worship service.

Wednesday nights classes will starts on April 7th

  • Bible classes will resume for our children assuming we have teachers for that class or age group.
  • The auditorium class will be taught by Richard who will be teaching from the book of Revelation.
  • Richard has prepared a workbook to go along with his class, please pick up the workbook as you enter the auditorium as we will not be passing the books.
  • The remote class will be for the ladies only and be taught by Michelle Mendiola who will be teaching a class on “Spiritual Seasons”.
  • For those not comfortable or ready to return to a crowded auditorium, we will be streaming the auditorium class.
  • We will have a short devotional following the class period that will not be live streamed.

On April 4th, we ask that each of you wear your name tags as well as wear your masks.  Many of you will quickly recognize that your name tags are in your mailboxes.  Since the mailboxes will not be open, Lori will have your name tags on a table in the foyer.

We are so looking forward to being back together and we HOPE you are as well….  May the Lord continue to keep each of you safe!

I found this in a book of illustrations and thought it may be useful to us as we navigate the troubled waters of the virus.

A ship’s mate once challenged a chaplain with the question, “How is it that you are always talking to my men about Jesus Christ? Did you ever see Him?” “No, I never did.” “Then how can you tell a man to trust in someone you have never seen? I can’t see any sense in that.” “Well,” replied the chaplain, “when you head for a place of refuge in a storm, what sense is there in telling your men to let go the anchor when they cannot see the ground? On what principle do you trust your ship and your life to ground you have never seen and never can see?” “Oh,” said the mate, “we go by our chart.” “Exactly,” replied the chaplain, holding up his Bible, “and I, too, go by a chart, and it is an infallible one, while yours is not. It tells me of the only sure ground of my salvation—the atoning work of Christ upon the cross. My faith, like your anchor, takes hold of this unseen but real ground, and so rides out the storm of life in peace and safety.”
