Pastor's Corner

A Word from your Pastor and Nancy,

Words can not even begin to express how much love and grace you all have poured out over Nancy & I during these past 2 months!  There really are no words I can find to say how much I love and appreciate each and every one of you!  Without all your love and support, I know I wouldn't be where I am today.   While I'm still not back to full strength, I am ready to start preaching again.  I want to share what God has shown me during this journey and believe that God has definetly given me a vision of where to go as a church starting this year!  I am excited to see those in attendance Sunday and reconnect with our church family via livestream this Sunday.   I hope you will join us for what I beleve will be a special day as a church body!

Church Family, 

Below is the direction we will take in January as a church body.  I am so proud of this church for the commitment and continued desire to share the love and hope of Jesus Christ to the Hobbs community.

 Since the virus is still rampant in Lea County, we believe the best path forward is to continue offering livestream of our Sunday Morning Worship services and offer Sunday morning in person opportunities depending on your comfort level.   Wherever you are as far as comfort level, we want to try and meet your need.   Just for your information, we averaged 30 people per week for in person worship while averaging 97 on line viewers each week during December.  We are encouraged so many of you are connecting on a regular basis. See below for a list of ministry opportunities available in January;

  • Sunday AM Worship via Livestream or in person worship each week based upon your preference.  Masks are required for in person attendance.
  • We will continue the children’s moment in the morning worship.   Rebecca & Kristin are reaching out to those with babies to see if there is a need for the Nursery or not this week.  If there is a need for a nursery, they will assess if there is enough help to open the nursery. (Excludes Kindergarten – 5th Grade)   Otherwise, we will stay the course in January as we did in December.  Families with children will know before Sunday of the outcome of their discussion and if nursery will be provided going forward.
  • Underground Youth will meet on Wednesday @5:30 PM as they did December.
  • Prayer meeting for all ages in the Parlor starting at 6:00 PM.
  • Bible Nerds has resumed in person for both the morning and afternoon Thursday groups!  Location will be in the Undergrounds versus the Parlor.  Same mask and social distancing requirements as in December.
  • American Heritage Group will resume meeting every Tuesday evening from 5:00 - 6:00 PM in the Big Ed room.  TMeetings are in person and via Zoom.   Masks are required along with social distancing of you chose to attend in person.
  • Praise and Worship team has restarted practices and in person worship. 
  • ROOTED will conduct contactless, drive through Music & CoMotion events on the 15th & 29th of January @10:00 AM.   
  • Home Groups.  May meet via Zoom or other electronic means during January.  

The staff and Deacon Body will continue to assess the situation throughout January and adjust if needed.
