Church Schedule Update!

Great News!  We will be open for services beginning May 3.  Please be respectful of the social guidelines put in place during this Corona Virus pandemic.  We have a large sanctuary, so use the space and spread out.

  1. Try to maintain that 6 foot distance between yourself and others who are not your immediate family members.
  2. As much as we love one another, now is not the time for hugging and handshaking. 
  3. Remember to cover your nose and mouth if you need to cough or sneeze (there are boxes of tissues dispersed throughout the sanctuary).
  4. Wash your hands frequently and use sanitizer if you have it. 
  5. If your immune system is compromised, follow the advice of your physician when returning to social gatherings and do what you feel is best.
  6. If you are not feeling well or if you know you have been personally exposed to someone who has the virus, please stay home. 

The sermon will be posted and it may even be live on Facebook on Sunday morning.
The Sunday school classes that normally met at 9:30 am will be combined and meet in the Fellowship Hall, a large room where we can space ourselves out.  Pastor Steve will be teaching the lesson.On Wednesday nights we will meet at 6:30 in the sanctuary to continue Pastor Eddie’s study of the Book of Acts.  The same guidelines apply.

Holding Fast

We’re going to start something new for the time being. Because of the current state of affairs, all services and activities have been cancelled. We plan to resume service with Easter Worship at 10:45 assuming the covid-19 threat is diminishing. We aren’t quitting until then though. For now, we will be posting our sermons on our website and making ourselves available for you via our contact page, on social media and over the phone.

Below is a video of our service last Sunday as well as the audio files or your viewing and listening enjoyment.

Covid-19 Precautions

These are confusing times for many people but, Don’t Panic! God’s got this, really. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still err on the side of caution and precaution though.

As of this weekend, we are not changing our regular Sunday worship schedule; however, will only have our 10:30 am service and we do ask for the following:

There will be no small groups and the schedule for Wednesday is pending. This schedule change is effective for the next two weeks and/or until further notice.

Other schedule changes that should be noted are as follows:

Food Pantry – Cancelled.

Monthly Pot Luck – Cancelled.

The Annual Easter Egg Hunt – Cancelled.

Some of you may be wondering how you’ll get some of your necessities and other items. Currently, most Hernando County residents have access to grocery home delivery service and grocery pickup. Here are some details about two of the services offered in our area:

Instacart for Publix can be downloaded on your mobile phone or tablet here:

iOS (apple) – Instacart App – iTunes Store

Android – Instacart app on Google Play

Or accessed via website: Publix on Instacart

Walmart Pickup can be downloaded to your mobile phone or tablet here:

iOS (apple) – Walmart Pickup App – iTunes Store

Android – Walmart Pickup App on Google Play

Or accessed via website: Walmart Pickup

Neither service will force you to tip; however, it is suggested, especially for Instacart, as they personally do all the shopping for you and do not get paid by the stores.

Now then, there has been a lot if information circulating in the media and on social media. Some of it is true, some of it isn’t. Some of it is sensationalized while some might downplayed. It’s hard to tell these days. Below will be some resources that can hopefully help clear things up.

First of all, here is the CDC website’s information on Covid-19 (coronavirus): https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/get-your-household-ready-for-COVID-19.html . There you can find how to prepare, how to protect, what to do if you feel sick and lots of other helpful information.

Here is a helpful illustration from the WHO on how to properly wash your hands:

The WHO (World Health Organization) also has a helpful website that gives information on the world impact of Covid-19. Their Covid-19 information can be found here: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

These last three links are for Florida and Hernando County residents. You can find County and State announcements and see how the virus is impacting our area. They can be found here:

We encourage you to continue your giving to the Church as God lays it on your heart. Most of all, please remember to pray and know that Jesus will never leave us or forsake us. As a church, we are here for you so do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of service in any way. Be sure to stay safe out there.
