Sunday Services Online – Even though we have reopened our sanctuary to members and guests for worship, we continue to be mindful of those who cannot join us for health or safety reasons arising from the pandemic. As a result, we are continuing to provide live streaming of our worship service on Facebook live so we can gather together. Click HERE to be taken directly to our Facebook page and remember to share the live feed so others can join in watching!
Online Giving – We now have online giving options! Head over to our home page to give to our general fund, to our monthly capital campaign, Stephenville Christian School, or directly to our building loan fund! The Deacons will also be sending out pre-addressed and stamped envelopes for those who'd rather not donate online. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be added, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Monthly Capital Campaign – The August capital campaign is for Back to God Ministries International. They are the worldwide media ministry of the Christian Reformed Church in North America and they use all types of media, from radio broadcasts to printed materials to smartphone apps, in 10 major languages to share the gospel, disciple believers, and strengthen local churches. Your gifts, offerings, and ministry shares make it possible to share God’s Word in remote villages of South Asia, growing faith communities in Africa and Latin America, “closed” countries in the Middle East, and among tech-savvy seekers in China, Japan, and North America. To learn more about how God is at work through this ministry visit https://backtogod.net/.
