Together in the Spirit

Our buildings are closed but our church is not!

While we have suspended physical gatherings for now, we remain the church. And while social distancing is our temporary norm, God is not at all distanced from us. Listed below are opportunities for spiritual growth. For more information on each opportunity, please see the church newsletter or the church website.

Summer Socials

Let’s celebrate summer together! Worship will move to 10:00 a.m., and there will be a virtual fellowship time from 9:30-10:00 a.m. via Zoom. Pour yourself an extra cup of coffee, sit at your computer, and join your church friends for a few minutes of fellowship time before we worship together. Contact Alisa Secrest for Zoom information.

Worship

Join us Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for worship on the church website.

Pray

We are a community of prayer. Pray for those already affected by pandemic in various ways, for health care providers, first responders and teachers, for the wisdom of government leaders in policy-making, and for the peace of God to enfold us all during this season. Our Cares and Concerns line continues to be updated on weekdays. Call (501) 227-6117 to hear joys and concerns.

Stay Connected

It is challenging to celebrate joys or endure challenge when we cannot share loving hugs. Yet, loving care remains. We are united in prayer and continue to care for one another in many ways. There is much we can do for each other. Let the church know about your joys and concerns by calling the church office or contacting Sharon Howard.
