Resumption of Assembly
Based on State of Virginia policy and recommended health guidance, the elders have decided to resume Sunday worship services on 10:30 AM beginning Sunday, May 31st. Our worship service will include singing, prayer, a sermon, and observance of the Lord’s Supper using appropriate health safety measures. State policy is to wear a face covering, so we are asking everyone to do so. There will be no assembly for Sunday evening worship and Sunday or Wednesday Bible classes at this time. We will continue to broadcast our Bible classes from our YouTube channel. The Sunday Bible class will be broadcast on Sunday at 6:30 PM, and the Wednesday Bible class will be broadcast on Wednesday at 7:30 PM.
We ask for your continued prayers and encouragement as we attempt to strike a balance between conforming to God’s will and acting with due concern for our neighbors. It is our desire to maintain humility and brotherly love as we work together through the challenges of returning to a new normal as God’s people.
Theme for 2020: “Christ in You, the Hope of glory”
As Paul writes to the Colossians, he seeks to reaffirm the all sufficiency of Christ against the backdrop of empty human speculations. Christians today need to have the same singular, exclusive relationship with Christ, but it comes from a true and complete commitment to Him. As our faith grows, and Christ grows within us, we also see our hope of glory grow and create strength and confidence in our future glory.
We need no doctrine but the pure gospel of Christ; we need no other savior than Christ; we must not add to or take away from the totality of who Christ is. Sermons throughout the year will highlight this theme: Christ in you, the Hope of Glory.
