Ash Wednesday Service
Join us on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 in the Weeks Chapel sanctuary to move into the season of Lent and prepare for the resurrection hope of Easter! Our 15-30 minute service will include the imposition of ashes, prayer, and Scripture as we reflect upon this new season in the Christian year.
Updated Worship Schedule
Because the number of coronavirus cases has remained the same since our recent suspension of services, we are extending this in-person suspension throughout the rest of January to ensure everyone's safety! We plan to resume biweekly services beginning with the baptism of Jon Grady Harvin on February 14. Even though we aren't meeting inside the building, we are planning to gather in person another way on Sunday, January 31. We will gather in or near our vehicles at 11:00 am on that date to share in a worship experience together. More information is to come.
online worship now available
While we may not be gathered in the same worship space during these different and difficult times, we are held together in Christ. A new order of worship including hymns, prayers, Scripture, and a message will be provided for each of the three weeks we will not physically gather, per our new Worship Schedule Update below. Feel free to use the orders of worship provided here to conduct a worship experience in your own home, for our Lord promises that when two or three are gathered together in His name, He too is present. Follow the instructions on the graphic to the left or click the "View" button in the red bar at the top of the screen to access Online Orders of Worship!
important worship schedule update!
Due to increasing coronavirus cases, many churches in our surrounding area are cancelling all in-person worship services until some point in the New Year. After consultation with church leadership, Weeks Chapel is suspending in-person services for December 27, January 3, and January 10. We would hopefully resume services January 17, continuing with our every other Sunday schedule. To stay connected on these three Sundays where we will not be together, we will send out a worship service by text message and email for our joint participation.
Christmas Eve Celebration
Join us on Thursday, December 24, 2020 in the Weeks Chapel Sanctuary for a Christmas Eve service celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ! We will sing Christmas carols, participate in a candlelight moment, and receive Holy Communion as we reflect on this joyous occasion.

Pastoral E-Notes Available online
Every week that we don't meet for in-person worship due to COVID-19, our pastor Whit Byram sends the congregation an inspirational message through the form of an "E-Note." While these are usually sent by way of text messaging, all E-Notes are now available on our site as well! Click on the "Pastoral E-Notes" tab at the top of the page and navigate to the month of your choice. We can't wait to expand this ministry!
