In-Person Worship Gatherings

We have decided to bring all worship services indoors. We will now 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.

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 on 11/1 here.

Register for the 10:00 service on 11/1 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 on 11/1 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.


Invitation to Honor "Miss Theresa"

Join us in honoring the many hours of loving dedicated service given by Theresa Jordan, who will be stepping down as White Station’s Children’s Minister on October 31st. Theresa’s heart, mission, and ministry has been and always will be about the nurture of children and young families at White Station and in our community. We are providing a way to honor Theresa through an opportunity to give to Agape whose mission is the care of children and families. If you would like to express your appreciation for Theresa and her dedication to our families and kids, you can go to this link to contribute in her name: https://agapemeanslove.org/donate/.

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.
