Bell Shoals Family,
As you may have seen recently,  the President extended social distancing guidelines through the month of April, so we will continue to meet online only through the end of the month. I know this has been a huge adjustment for everyone and hopefully we can gather again in person beginning in May. That’s our plan as of right now!

We do have something special planned for Easter weekend, however, that I’m excited to tell you about! We will be offering a special drive-in worship experience at our Brandon Campus. This will get everyone out of the house and gathering in person - even though we’ll be in our vehicles. I believe it will be a unique opportunity for our faith family to gather on Easter weekend and make the most of this current situation. So here’s the deal: we will have a minimum of six services on April 11-12, and we need you to get tickets for the service you and your family plan to attend! Parking spaces are limited so be sure to register through our website ASAP. Tickets are free, of course; we just need to ensure that we have a spot for everyone who wants to attend. We have the capability to add additional services if necessary, so I’ll keep you posted on how registration is going. Now, in the case you can’t attend in person that weekend, we will still offer our online services at every campus to ensure you don’t miss out.

You can sign-up for your tickets anytime over the next 2 weeks, so head to for service times and to reserve your tickets. 

Thank you so much for your understanding, encouragement, and support, over the past few weeks. These are unprecedented days but we’re seeing God do some amazing things. We’ve seen people come to faith in Christ every week even though our worship services are online, and our online viewership continues to grow. This past weekend, for example, we had over 8,000 views on Facebook and nearly 2,000 unique IP addresses through our website stream. The Lord Jesus continues to build His church through the Coronavirus situation and we are blessed to be a small part of what He is doing.

On behalf of our entire staff team, we love you and thank God for you, and we look forward to seeing you as soon as possible! Stay safe and healthy, and be sure to let us know if we can minister to you in any way. And be sure to register now for your Easter weekend drive-in worship tickets, and join us for what will be a special weekend in the life of our church. Take care and I’ll talk to you soon!
