Easter Services - April 12, 2020
Steele Memorial Church at 733 Shaw Street in Barboursville will host an Easter Sunrise Worship at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 12! This Parking Lot worship event is open to the entire community! We ask that you remain in your cars and leave one space between cars. The service will be transmitted over radio frequency (104.5 FM) with Pastor Kevin Lantz speaking from the Church grounds.
The Church’s regular Easter Worship will be available as live-streaming at 10 a.m., and you can connect through the Church’s Facebook site: www.facebook.com/steelememorialumc/.
Due to threats surrounding the community with the Coronavirus, our worship services will be provided online. We want everyone to be safe and stay away from crowds. I'm praying that you and your families will be healthy and well-cared for during the pandemic. But please know that you can contact Pastor Kevin with any concerns or questions during this time of self-imposed quarantine. [Pastor Kevin's cell: 304-638-4840]
We plan to live stream an abbreviated worship using Facebook Live on Sunday at 10:00 AM. Near the end of March we will re-evaluate the health concerns and express plans moving forward. If any seniors or homebound friends are unable to go out for groceries or necessary medications, please contact the Church office; we have others in Church who are very happy to assist with deliveries.

As our Bishop Sandra Steiner-Ball recently commented: "We need to remember that we can unknowingly be carriers of the Coronavirus and we do not want to carry the virus to someone who does not have the health and strength to fight it. So please remember, we do not isolate or refrain from meeting together for ourselves, but for others who need us to help them stay healthy and for our first responders and medical professionals."
If there are groups that would want to meet via tele-conferencing or on-line video conferencing, you can make efforts to use Zoom or the FaceTime app.
Let us continue to pray for all our churches, lay leaders, communities, our medical personal, and health officials during these challenging and fast-changing situations. Please, please keep up with the latest updates and make adjustments to your personal life as called for by our health officials and our national, state, and local leaders.
We know that the current crisis, though historical, is a temporary crisis. As people of God, rest in the hope of your faith: For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
