On Thursday, April 23, 2020 Governor Roy Cooper extended the "stay-at-home" order through May 8, 2020 for the state of North Carolina. With this extension he outlined a 3 phase plan to reopen the state and to ease the current restrictions. In this plan, churches would be allowed to gather in person during phase 2 (2-3 weeks after phase 1). This would likely allow any type of assembly to take place toward the end of May and approaching June. Of course, we also recognize that the Governor's order would put limits on those gatherings as well (perhaps a limit of 50 people at a time, as an example). Hopefully this is a "light at the end of the tunnel" scenario as we continue to pray for the resuming of our corporate worship gatherings. Please pray to this end, and pray for wisdom and discernment as we navigate the days ahead. We desire to honor government, protect the vulnerable, and remain obedient to Christ. This takes patience, prayer, and wisdom.   

As we have stated, we will continue to minister to you during this time through the following means:



  • Each Sunday at 4:00pm a fun and interactive Kid's video will be released by Pastor RJ and our kids connection ministry to encourage your children and keep them connected to the weekly to Bible lessons. You can find this video on Facebook or YouTube


  • Virtual Fellowships are designed so that our church family can connect with each other for a scheduled time of conversation, prayer, and scripture reading. These virtual small groups take place on Sunday afternoons. 

Thank you for your faithfulness in giving during this season. Your continued faithfulness helps us to maintain our day to day operations and missionary obligations during this season of limited gatherings. If you need more giving envelopes, contact the office and we will be happy to mail them to you. Also, you can give online anytime by clicking on the giving page of our church website. 

As always, please let our staff or your deacon know if there’s anything we can do to serve you during this time.

"The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those that trust in him."

Nahum 1:7

Your Pastor,

Jonathan Blankenship
