We are continuing to have in-person Sabbath Morning worship services. Masks are required for all attendees while inside the building.

If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, or if you are sick, or have been in close contact with someone who is sick with any type of contagious illness you are encouraged to join our service via live stream.

Any person who is considered "high-risk" for contracting a respiratory illness (over 65 or with pre-existing medical conditions) is encouraged to remain home and continue watching our service via live-stream.

We are resuming our regular schedule of worship services. Morning Sabbath School study begins at 9:30 in the sanctuary, and the Worship Service will begin at 11am. We will continue live streaming of the sermon which will begin at 11:30am. 

We still ask all attendees to maintain social distancing with others outside of your family group or household, and avoid handshaking, hugging, or other forms of physical contact. If the Sanctuary becomes too crowded, some attendees may be asked to view the service via video from the fellowship hall. 

Hand sanitizer will be available around the church building and frequent hand washing or use of sanitizer is strongly encouraged. We will continue to work to sanitize the building and frequently touched surfaces to help keep our attendees safe. 

Any person who is sick, or has been in close contact with someone who is sick with any type of contagious illness should not attend and is encouraged to join our service via live stream. Any person who is considered "high-risk" for contracting a respiratory illness (over 65 or with pre-existing medical conditions) is encouraged to remain home and continue watching our service via live-stream.

In compliance with state and federal regulations, our church has received permission from the Carolina Conference to resume in-person worship services on a limited basis. 

The worship service will begin at 11:15 am, with no Sabbath-School programs. All attendees are strongly encouraged to wear a protective mask or facial covering over their mouth and nose to help prevent spread of disease. While we know it may be difficult, we ask all attendees to maintain social distancing with others outside of your family group or household, and avoid handshaking, hugging, or other forms of physical contact. If the Sanctuary becomes too crowded, some attendees may be asked to view the service via video from the fellowship hall. 

Hand sanitizer will be available around the church building and frequent hand washing or use of sanitizer is strongly encouraged. We will continue to work to sanitize the building and frequently touched surfaces to help keep our attendees safe.

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the temporary suspension of our on-site worship services and prayer meetings to protect the health of our church members.  

Please visit our Social Media video pages to see past sermons. Also, we will be live streaming weekly sermons presented by Pastor Marshall or other speakers, so check in at worship time on Sabbath for live stream video of new sermons.

Other options for Sabbath viewing material are listed as well, so check them out!
