Resumption of Wednesday Bible Study
After five months of altered services due to COVID-19, the elders have decided to expand the congregational meetings at Centreville with an adult Wednesday evening study. This will begin on September 2nd at 7:30 PM and follow the format of announcements, a song, a prayer and Bible study.
We continue to hold Sunday worship services on Sunday morning at 10:30 AM. Our worship service includes 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 during our meetings. We also continue to broadcast our Sunday Bible class from our YouTube channel on Sunday at 6:30 PM.
The elders will observe how this works for several weeks with an evaluation to follow. We feel confident that our current social distancing and other precautions will ensure continued safety within reasonable bounds. We understand, of course, that nothing in life is completely without risk.
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.
