A letter from our Session

Good Afternoon Beloved,

Last night, the Session talked on-line to prayerfully trust Christ as we shepherd His flock. We agreed to abide by the recommendations coming from our governor’s office by continuing to suspend all programs and operations in our facilities (1 Pet. 2:17). During this season, please consider doing the following:

  1. Participate in the means of grace that are available. We will continue to stream adult Sunday school and worship services. There are also mid-week forums for men, women, youth, and children. The Apostles Paul (1 Thess. 2:17-20) and John (3 John 14) longed to see their friends face to face; yet they wrote letters. They used the means of communication in their day to convey love. Similarly, we seek to do so through those afforded to us (1 Thess. 3:1-13). Visit for more information and join links.
  2. Pray for the Session’s next stated meeting on May 14th to be guided by the Holy Spirit as we seek the Kingdom of our God (Matt. 6:33) and serve you (Gal. 6:10).
  3. Pass on shepherding concerns to us. For clarity, the current Session is Steve Dowling, John Parr, Bob Norman, Tom Tillman, David Rouse, John DiJulio, and Jere Scott Bradshaw. Our great privilege is to walk through every season with you (Acts 20:17-38). Please share with us your joys and concerns as we look to the Great Shepherd by faith (John 10:11-14). If you need a church directory, please request one here.
  4. Communicate mercy opportunities in our church and in the community to our deacons (Acts 6:1-7). The current Diaconate is Shea Tillman, Tim Hunter, Jose Vasconcelos, Robert Judd, and Stephen Taunton. Again, if you need a church directory, please request one here.
  5. Direct questions related to worship services, giving, and weekly studies to the staff. Tom Dowling, Tiffany Blackmon, and Clint Estes serve to equip the saints for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:15-16).

Finally, rejoice (Phil. 4:4). There are many good reasons for us to be fearful, angry, or indifferent; but there are many better reasons for us to persevere by faith. May our Great God establish you in His love as together (though separate) we affirm, “But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it, we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved.” (Phil. 3:20-4:1).

In Him,
Your Session
