We want to keep you well informed on how the ministries of the Church are going to continue! In accordance to the CDC guidelines we have moved all our Sunday morning services online.
Letter to Congregation
Dear Friends & Family,
I pray this message finds you healthy & safe! Thank you for taking the time to read this update. With all that is happening (and as quickly as things are changing) it is more important than ever for us to stay connected with one another and to maintain good communication.
- Sunday worship (at the church) remains suspended until further notice. We will continue to post a video broadcast on Sunday mornings, but with a slight time change from last week (to avoid overlap with our KAIR Radio broadcast at 10:00).
Facebook Broadcast airs at 9:00 Sunday morning (but it can be viewed at any time after this).
- Beginning Monday (March 30) I will be facilitating a 14-Day inter-active online Devotional Study through You Version (anyone who wants to join is welcome, but you have to sign up by Sunday, March 29). Our devotional study (by Dr. Joyce Meyer) is called Trusting God Day by Day.
To join: 1) Go to Bible.com and SIGN UP for a FREE user account; 2) Send me a Friend Request (that’s it!). There is also a free You Version app for your mobile device.
- Until further notice, we will have a team of volunteers at the Santa Fe (basement) entrance of the church Monday – Thursday from Noon-1:00 to receive non-perishable food donations & financial contributions for the Atchison County Food Pantry. Please help as you are able (you don’t even have to get out of your car – just drive through to donate).
Our first distribution event is scheduled for Friday, April 3 (from 3:00-6:00) in our parking lot (more information is available on our Facebook page).
- Though the church office remains closed, phone messages are being checked several times a week and emails are being monitored daily.
- Thank you to all who continue to support the ministries of FCC financially – we need your support now more than ever! For those who want to help but haven’t yet – please consider doing so as soon as possible. Thank You in advance for your support. Checks may be mailed to the church & our website outlines multiple ways to give digitally – all are very easy to set up.
- I have been collaborating with other pastors in Atchison about Easter. We are discussing creative ways we might be able to celebrate. Right now, we are inviting everyone to sing Amazing Grace at 9:00 from the doorstep of your home. This idea has caught a lot of attention and we already have folks from different cities who will be joining in! Stay tuned for more info regarding Easter Sunday.
Please know that you are ALL in my prayers. God is faithful and He will bring us through this. In the meantime, may “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 4:7).
In Christ, Pastor Matt
