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."
Guess where we will be this Sunday? God be praised, we will be back in our Sanctuary this coming Sunday 25th and will begin with a 9:00 am service with masks mandatory and 11:00 am with masks optional, but highly recommended for the protection of all. Remember it is about the safety of all our brothers and sisters around us. Be in prayer for us that nothing derails us and thank you to the committee members who worked so hard to make this happen.
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 discription in the next few days. We ask everyone to pray for us!
Join us this Sunday as we reassemble together inside the Fellowship Hall at 11:00 am. We are meeting in the Fellowship Hall due to the construction in the Sanctuary. We will continue to have Sunday (11:00 am) and Wednesday (6:30 pm) services on Facebook Live and on FM 93.1. Sunday and Wednesday in services are open to all. Once Sanctuary is completed in God's time we will open our Sunday school plus Children's programs and Nursery. The Virus is still active and we need to be cautious.
Our plan for keeping everyone safe when you enter the Fellowship Hall: We will have two entrances, the main door and the side door by the walkway. Outside 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. We ask that everyone restrain from handshaking and hugging for now. There will be separated seating using our white chairs. A family may move their seats closer together especially with small children. 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. The Youth will continue to have their Sunday school and Wednesday night program via internet. Our current program Sunday will be as we have had in our Drive In service. Welcome and Announcements; Song; Message; Invitation, Song, and Closing prayer. If you would like to sing in a service, please contact Tommy. As you leave the Fellowship Hall, you may use any of the three doors. We ask that when the service is finished, please 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.
