Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Hebrews 4:16 tells us "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
We are taking resumes for our part time paid Youth Leader position. If interested you may contact the Pastor for information. You may also send a resume to the Pastor at firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop it off at the Church (Mon - Thursday from 8 to 12 am) We will be posting job description in the next few days. We ask everyone to pray for us!
We will not being having a Wednesday night service this week due to the Community Thanksgiving Service at Cedar Creek Baptist Church on Hwy 34 heading into Bishopville at 7:00 pm. This will be a great time of worship! Masks will be highly recommended. There will be no meal afterward.
What a great time we (Youth) had at the bonfire event, and we want to thank the Hinson family and all their helpers! We are looking at our next event being a fun time bowling. We will let you know when and where very soon.
Reminders for Church family and friends:
Come by and pick up your copy of the By Laws Recommendations so that you can review, ask any questions, make any suggestions, so that we can get them voted on in December. We have one copy per family and can stop in Monday thru Thursday from 7:00 am to 12:00. There will be one of the By Law Team members who will meet with you after the Wednesday night service if you have questions.
We are in the Sanctuary: God be praised, we are back in our Sanctuary with our first service at 9:00 am service with masks being mandatory. Our second service will be at 11:00 am with masks being highly recommended for the protection of all. We are also having our Wednesday night Refreshing service at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary. Remember our goal is the safety of all our brothers and sisters around us. We are now working on future dates for starting our Sunday school, Children's Program, and Youth Ministry. Please be in prayer for us as God restores our Church to full programs again. Come and join us as we begin a new journey with Jesus!
Our plan for keeping everyone safe when you enter the Sanctuary. We will have two entrances, the main doors and the side door by the walk rampway. Inside the doors we will have a Deacon to instruct and answer questions. There will also be a table with masks, gloves, and sanitizer. Each person will need to decide for their safety what to or not to wear during the 11:00 am service. We ask that everyone restrain from handshaking and hugging for now. There will be separated seating using every other pew which is marked with a yellow sign. Deacon Carl Lee has made two beautiful boxes so that as you enter the Fellowship Hall you may deposit your Tithe and Offering into it on the way to your seat. For now there will be no Welcome time, Children's Moment, Sunday school, Nursery, Children's programs to include Children's church. If you would like to sing in a service, please contact Tommy. As you leave we ask that you take your time leaving giving everyone space/distance. Also be careful in groups outside the church. We will continue to have Facebook live on Sunday and Wednesday to include FM 93.1. We may have more information to come.
Upcoming Events at Antioch:
We welcome our two new Deacon's Alan Lutterloah and Stephen Anderjack to the work of the Church in fulfilling God's Will! Please be in prayer for them.
We want to welcome to our Church Family our newest members Dylan Frost, Jake Trimnal, Justin Hopkins, Kinlyn Hinson, Josh and Meagan Twitty and kids, Vicki Logan, Ann and Bo Stokes, Matthew Stokes, Marcus Stokes, and Summer Arrants. We look forward to working together for the Kingdom, Church, and Community. We praise God for all He is doing in our church family. May God bless our journey together with each other and with our community!
Our Church is growing and we want to be more involved in Discipleship and Evangelism in our Community along with helping meet needs. Every part of the body has a purpose and a part to play - please let each of us do our part to the glory of our God and Savior. Even if you don't feel led to lead a ministry or team, then just be part of the team. Every member needs to be active in some ministry of our Church. We are in need of volunteers to work in the Nursery Sunday AM and PM services along with Wednesday service. We also need volunteers to work with the Preschool ages. Please see Pastor, Jane, and Loren if you need more information.
Our focus at Antioch is to provide the Holy Spirit the environment to move in the lives of all Visitors, and Disciples as they journey with Jesus. We promote the Word of God as our book of life. We promote a daily walk with Jesus. We promote daily Prayer (communication) with the Father. We promote action for Disciples in the forms of ministry; use of spiritual gifts; use of talents; love for the Saints, and those who don't agree with us. If this sounds like a House of God that you would like to visit, then you are invited!
Check out our calendar for all our events, then come and join us for a great time together in the Lord.
