Easter Sunday 2020

Easter Sunday was a special Sunday for many reasons. We were able to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection with so many of our church family via the Easter Drive-in Service. The special music was wonderful and many of those who attended commented they loved the service and seeing their friends (through their car windows) again. We’re so thankful for how the Lord has blessed us during this time of quarantine. We’re so thankful for the many that came out to celebrate in worship with us here at Suburban!

We pray for health and safety of you all!

Until we can be together again, God Bless!

Easter Sunday Drive-in Service

Resurrection Sunday—Drive In Sunday!
Sunday, April 12th – Come celebrate our Lord’s resurrection at our Drive-in Easter service at 10:30 a.m. We will have ushers directing you on where to park once you arrive. We can celebrate Christ’s resurrection and worship the Lord “together” from the safety of our vehicles.

Children will be given Easter Bible lessons, crafts and Easter Eggs.

There will be no evening service.

COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE

3-24-2020 Service Schedule Update

Church Family,

On Monday, March 23, Governor Holcomb declared a statewide “Stay at Home” order.  This declaration requires Hoosiers to stay at home except for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety.”  In speaking with our attorney, Joshua Hershberger, he informed me that having our musicians and A/V personnel at church to live stream services is considered essential and is being encouraged.

This mandate goes into full effect at midnight tonight and covers two Wednesdays and two Sundays (25 Mar, 29 Mar, 1 Apr, and 5 Apr).  I want to strongly encourage you to hunker down and watch the live stream.  Our schedule is as follows.

No Sunday School                                     

Live Stream Morning Service                    10:30 am

Live Stream Evening Service                     6:00 pm

Live Stream Wednesday Service              7:00 pm

Prayerfully Optimistic,

Pastor

Worship Schedule

Dearest Church Family,

We are definitely in uncharted waters here.  Many of you are aware of my policy on closing down the church.  Barring a lawful edict to cease operations, I don’t cancel church services, and that is not my plan now.  However, our state government has been methodically escalating efforts to enforce what they have termed “social distancing”.  Let me say that I believe in doing all we can do to prevent the spread of this virus that currently has no vaccine.  The biggest danger seems to be in the over-65 age group.  I am not going to list the current statistics because they can be very misleading.  But the fact remains that a high percentage of the danger this virus poses is in that age group.

With that being said, we will be conducting church services, but I want to encourage you to stay home and watch the live stream while the situation remains volatile.  If you are high risk, you probably shouldn’t be here; the statistics are not in your favor.  I have struggled mightily over this, but I have come to the conclusion that no one is trying to prohibit us from preaching and teaching the Word of God.  Rather, this is a health crisis that all are trying to mitigate, and almost every facet of society is affected.

Our schedule is as follows.

No Sunday School

Live Stream Morning Service 10:30 am

Live Stream Evening Service 6:00 pm

Live Stream Wednesday Service 7:00 pm

If you have any questions about this, or if I haven’t covered your particular area of concern, you can contact me any time.

I love you all very much and look forward to normalcy in the near future.  I pray that God gets all glory from this.

With much love and support,

Pastor
