Church/Covid updates

Dear North Collins Wesleyan Community,


It is our desire to respond wisely to the coronavirus (Covid-19) and minimize its spread.  Out of love and concern for everyone who attends, worships, and participates with us, particularly whose who may be most vulnerable to the virus, we will be implementing some safety measures.  Please check out this page to discover the current steps being taken and the status on services, events, and gatherings.  

EASTER WEEKEND UPDATE

We are super excited for the Easter Weekend!  Here is a quick reminder of our weekend schedule:


Saturday, April 3rd

- Community Easter Egg Hunt at 10AM

- Easter Worship Service at 5PM


Sunday, April 4th

- Easter Worship Services at 9AM & 11AM

- Facebook LIVE Online Worship at 9AM


We hope to connect with you through one of these fantastic opportunities!!

MARCH 27 Update

This is Palm Weekend! What does that mean? Every year, on this weekend, we celebrate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This event is the start of Holy Week and the final build-up to Easter. This is a special week and we hope that you are able to celebrate in some meaningful ways. 


Each weekend, including this weekend and Easter Weekend, we offer 3 in person services (Saturday at 5pm, Sunday at 9am/11am), as well as 2 virtual options (Facebook Live at 9am Sunday, or our message is available on our YouTube channel.)  We look forward to worshipping with you!

Our Easter egg hunt scheduled for Sunday, March 28th is postponed due to the expected bad weather.  Instead, it will be held on Saturday, April 3rd at 10am.  The hunt is for all children and teenagers - all are welcome!

Looking for an update on the Family Life Center Building Campaign?  We got you covered!  From this weekend's services, we added another 28 ping pong balls to the lantern! Remember each ball represents $100 given to the campaign!!  WOW! Praise God!!! We have reached over $118,000.00 raised! That means we are under $2000 away from our one year goal of $120,000!! That could happen this weekend! Wouldn't it be wonderful to further celebrate on Easter Sunday, which is actually our church's 60 year anniversary, by reaching this goal!


God is doing great things in our church and community! We hope you are excited for the next two weekends as we celebrate Palm and Easter Weekends!!

MARCH 5 UPDATE

We hope this week finds you well! During this season of Lent, we remind you to look for opportunities to spend some extra time with God!  Here are some updates about current happenings at the church:


*This weekend, 17 ping pong balls were added to the Family Life Center Building Fund Lantern!! Yes - that means over $1700 came in! Praise God! We are excited to continue to see funds come in for this incredible project! We are getting closer to our $120,000 goal!


*While we are saddened by the news that the Leininger family will be leaving in July, we know that God has great things for the future of North Collins Wesleyan! The church board has met this week and is putting together a search committee as we look for a lead pastor. Your prayers are appreciated as we know God is preparing the right family to lead us in the next chapter of ministry!
