Hello Shelter Body,
2020 is behind us as well as the first week of 2021. There is no magical change in the year, we are still in a pandemic, still masking, washing our hands, and social distancing. We are a blessed people with a great hope, hope eternal because of our trust in Jesus Christ.
As we move into 2021 we will continue our service on January 17 in the building, with same practices as before. We will wear mask in and going out, social distance in the pews, each family will sit with their own family or groups with their own groups. Please pass this info on to your family or group. We will dismiss by rows following the ushers directions.
There have been questions about our Mini Churches in regards to attending and schedule. So here is our new plan and schedule. We are going to ask you to pick the Mini Church you want to ATTEND and SERVE with. So please pick one Elder (it doesn't matter to the Elders but we are asking for you to choose one) Monty Reeves, John Mercer, Casey Neal, Connally Million or Pastor Sterling. If you choose to stay in the same one that is ok stay there. However we NEED you to communicate with us your desired choice through Email, Text, or Note in offering box about which Mini Church of you will be participating in by the first Sunday in February.

Budget and Giving
March 20, 2020 Update
Shelter Church family,
Continue to pray for one another and contact each other as we go through uncertain times. Keeping in mind God is still in control. None of this has surprised Him.
Since we are not meeting in the building for now, we are shutting everything off that we can in order to conserve cost. Keep in mind we still have bills and salaries to pay and we have a biblical responsibility to be good stewards.
Please continue your giving throughout this time so that we can continue to meet the needs of the church. Offerings can be sent by mail, dropped off during regular hours or call one of the elders and they will come and pick it up at your home.
