Hi Stono Family! Pastor Stephen did a One Call, but for those not on our One Call list, we will be meeting for services this Sunday at 11am. The nursery will be closed and we will be practicing safe measures as much as possible. We will be recording the live service, but it will not be available until Sunday afternoon - we will have it posted here for you. As Pastor Stephen said on the One Call - if you are sick please stay at home, and if you are immunocompromised, we completely understand if you choose to do a virtual service. We want you to be able to worship freely and comfortably.
Hello Stono family, and welcome to another virtual service! While we miss being together in person, isn't it awesome that we can "meet" together at the same time and worship together as a Church family? Our Church leadership is much in prayer about the timing of our virtual services coming to a close as we fellowship together in person.
Congratulations to the Waters family as Pastor Stephen's sister had a beautiful healthy baby girl - welcome Anna Grace to the family. Thank God for a healthy baby and Mom.
I have to admit, this one is for all the Moms out there who can identify as much as it is for the kids - enjoy! Good Night - Veggie Tales
Sunday May 3, 2020
Welcome to another Virtual Sunday - the first Sunday in May! We pray you are doing well and are looking forward to the day we can worship together in person. Until then, we hope you are enjoying our virtual services and basking in His presence as we all worship together in Spirit.
Adding another song for the kids today. This is one that has been used a lot for reminding our kids that God is in control and there is nothing that He can't take care of - nothing to be scared of here!
Happy Sunday everyone - last Sunday in April! We have added a guestbook page for you and would love to hear your comments on our virtual services. We would also love to hear from you if you have made a decision for salvation, or if you have a prayer request or praise report! Your email address will only be seen by administrative staff, and used for responses if requested or needed.
Greg recorded this on his phone at the Church last year when I sang it and it is still one of my favorite songs. The message itself is timeless - it doesn't matter what you say about yourself or what others say about you - the only thing that matters is what God says about you. He calls us His beloved children!
While we are not able to meet in person today, we still have great cause to celebrate: Jesus is Risen! May each of you and your families have a safe and happy Easter!
Please join with us in worship during the songs and the message. We are using YouTube, so some of the videos will have ads that can be skipped. This is the "behind the scenes" stuff you don't usually see because we have 2 wonderful people at the soundbooth taking care of these during the Church services - thank you Janice and Greg! Also thank you to our Pastor's wife Debbie for enhancing the Pastor's message with visuals - great job!
I want to leave you today with an awesome message and song from a man who greatly influenced me as a young Christian.
I was fortunate to be able to see him in concert before he was taken home to be with the Lord at a young age. If you have
some free time, I would encourage you to find some of his songs on Youtube - they are truly inspiring!
Palm Sunday - how many of you thought you would be spending it at home?
Can you just imagine how Jesus felt riding that donkey in to shouts of, "Hosanna" and "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord", knowing that in the very same week they would be crying out, "Crucify Him!"?
We are using YouTube so you may need to skip ads. Sing along and worship with us today!
Welcome to our second Virtual Service! We hope you enjoyed the music and the message last week, and are staying encouraged in these troubling times. One thing that was missing last week was the visual for the music, so we hope you will enjoy and sing along with the music selections for our service today. Keep in mind that with YouTube you may need to skip ads.
For our special this week, I am bringing back one of my favorite memories. This is a great song to remind us that we are not alone, and this was the first (and only) time that my daughter and Hannah Butler ministered with me at another Church. I hope you enjoy it!
Welcome to our first Virtual Ministry Service. Due to the Coronavirus, we are having to come up with new ways to continue ministry in a virtual setting. So consider yourself virtually hugged and enjoy the selections for today! May God continue to bless you and our country.
We will start out with some music, and then there will be a You Tube link for the Pastor's Message. Click on each link to start the music or message.
