Indoor Worship



A BIG Thank you to Rev. Bill Starr for filling in for Pastor Steve last Sunday.  We all appreciated his Message.  

Sunday Worship will be in the Sanctuary.  All pews and public areas have been sanitized and we will be following the same guidelines and procedures as the past few weeks.  Please remember that all must wear a mask and a reminder that there should be no contact with anyone but your immediate family – no hugs, no handshakes, etc.  We must remain socially distanced at all times.  Follow the instructions from the ushers and go directly to your pew and exit the same way, please.  Thank you all for your patience.

For those that do not want to enter the Sanctuary, the service will be broadcast into the parking lot on FM station 87.9.  If you are remaining in your vehicle, please park in the rear lot to allow those entering to use the closest lot to the sanctuary doors.  The online services from Pastor Steve will continue for viewing if you are unable to attend in person.  The video can be found on our website or the Central Highlands YouTube channel.

If your birthday month has passed and you or family members have not been listed either in the Highlander or here, that means I don’t have record of that birthday.  Please let me know and I can update the church records. 

Thank you received: 

Thank you wonderful church family for all the support during the month of September.  Thanks to all who sent birthday cards; it made her day special with so many birthday wishes!  Then you continued to support with your prayers and condolences as we quickly transitioned from birthday to her ultimate reception in heaven.  She loved her church and her family, but we take comfort that she is now experiencing what we all strive for – everlasting life.
