In-Person Worship Gatherings

Because we have had to cancel the last two weeks Sunday morning worship services due to the unpredictable weather forecasts, we have decided to bring all worship services indoors. Beginning Sunday, October 25th, we will have an 8:00 a.m. and a 10:00 a.m. worship service in the Auditorium and a 3:00 p.m. worship service also in the Auditorium. Bob Turner will preach in all three services.

8:00 & 10:00 a.m. - Auditorium

These services will both be in the more contemporary style of the Fellowship Hall service (but held in the Auditorium) and inclusive of women serving in leadership roles. There will be no Sunday school classes, children's activities, or nursery provided.

> Register for the 8:00 service here.

> Register for the 10:00 service here.

*The 10:00 a.m. service will be our live streamed service, so come early as we will be starting on time. If you worship with us online, please note that our live stream will now begin at 10:00 a.m.

3:00 p.m. - Auditorium

This service will be in the more traditional style of the Auditorium and 5:00 p.m. Chapel services. It is reserved for those who did not attend the 8:00 or 10:00 a.m. worship services. This service will also include communion (individually packaged).

> Register for the 3:00 service here.

As we continue to love each other and our neighbor, we require that everyone attending an in-person worship gathering wear a mask and respect physical distancing of at least 6 feet while on campus. Keeping each other safe is very important to us. We hope you and your family choose to join us on Sundays at 8:00 or 10:00 a.m. in the Auditorium, online at 10:00 a.m., or at 3:00 p.m. in the Auditorium as we gather to worship God the Father.

 

Virtual Bible Classes with Rubel Shelly 

Our virtual Bible classes are following our sermon series "Chosen Exiles" on the book of 1 Peter. This week, Dr. Shelly will be teaching us about Peter's messages in 1 Peter 3:8-4:11 in a series entitled "When Suffering Comes." Watch the first two videos here, and find the discussion questions here.

Trick or Treat a Trunk - REVERSED (Update)

As we all know, Celebrating Halloween this year can be a little TRICKY so we are trying to be creative but still keep the tradition alive in someway. 

There are a couple of ways you can participate:

  1. Sign up to pick up candy filled bags on Sunday, Oct. 25th  at our worship service or  Saturday, Oct. 31 between 10:00 – 11:30 AM.
  2. Sign up to pick up bags that you will stuff with your own candy. 

Please use this link to sign up for one of the two ways listed above. http://bit.ly/WSCM-TTT

Whichever way you choose, the main goal is to be the Everyday Church and GO TO our community!  Decorate your car, dress up, or just be your friendly self and share a treat bag with several friends and neighbors. You could even go to a neighborhood park and share a bag with the kids there. Each bag will be labeled with Trick or Treat a Friend and have White Station’s information on it.

Prayer Request on Behalf of Dr. Jim Wheless

Thank you all for praying for relief from the current pandemic, wisdom for those developing and testing new treatments and good health and calm for those in the health care field. In my 45 years of medicine I have never seen a time with so many anxious colleagues and co-workers at the hospital. They need to know they are being prayed for daily. Thanks for supporting in prayer these health professionals.
