This Week’s Message

COVID-19 ANNOUNCMENT

Good Afternoon Folks,

Just wanted to touch based with our members, friends and supporters of the Gentle Spirit Christian Church. Despite Gov. Kemp’s announcement this afternoon about opening business on Friday , and allowing churches to gather for Worship services under a strict adherence to social distancing rules, we WILL NOT be opening the Church Office or returning to Candler Park for Worship service just yet.

After discussion with our staff and other area pastor’s it has been decided we will act with extreme caution for our friends, members and supporters by operating as we have for the last several weeks in accordance to CDC guidelines.

I shall remain available via phone, text, video conferencing and email. Worship will be live streamed from Facebook 10:30am Sundays and our mid-week meditation will continue Wednesdays at 7pm. I know there are some who will disagree with our choice. However, I would rather spend a few extra weeks apart so that when we do come together we will be reasonably  sure we are not spreading a dangerous virus among our folks.

God Bless, Rev. Paul M. Turner (Pastor Paul) Senior Pastor
