Worship Live Now

Rethink Church

*Important Announcement from Pastor John regarding     COVID-19:

We are suspending all worship services and Sunday School, as well as Wednesday night supper and bible study through the end of the month.   This is being done in response to the Corona Virus situation, as well as upon the recommendation of our bishop. That being said, remember that we, each of us, are the church; not our services, events or building    So, pray. Check in on your friends and neighbors.
Even though our activities as a congregation have ceased temporarily, let us not forget that the church’s needs for operations (on-going bills) remain. You may mail your contribution to the church (P.O. Box 30, Winterville, GA  30683) or drop it off as the office will initially remain open, however, you may want to call first.
I have a feeling that something good will come out of all this, so let’s continue to be the Church even though we are not meeting together. I will keep you updated as I get more information.
Pastor John
