Regathering

Regathering Announcement

Winder First Family and Guests,

Let’s talk about re-opening the church building for worship!  Our pastor along with church leadership have made the decision to target Sunday June 7th as our date to begin holding on-campus worship services again!  Please watch the video announcement from Pastor Chad and take a look at our Church Regathering Document available here on our website.

We are planning services for 9am and 11am.  Those services will be family worship services with no Life Groups on campus at least through July.  Additionally, we will be live-streaming each service to our YouTube and Facebook channels and encourage you worship with us online until you feel it is safe for you to return.

In this current season, we will need you to pre-register you and your family for the service you plan on attending.  You can easily register here on our website or by using our App or simply call the church office during normal hours and someone can get you registered! 

Finally, let us remind you that until we begin gathering together on June 7th, you can join us each Sunday at 10am online for worship!
