Special Notice


In light of the most recent COVID-19 numbers in, the Tiftarea and at Southwell-Tift Regional Medical Center, we have made the decision to suspend in-person worship and activities for 30 days (tentatively).  This was a difficult decision, but based on the numbers of at-risk people who were being so faithful to our services, we decided that it was in the best interests of our church.  We are doing everything we can to insure the safety of those who are here, and hope that you can understand that.  Our services are live-streaming on Facebook (Contemporary Service) and YouTube (Traditional Service) each Sunday morning, and you can access them from our church website –

In the meantime, please be vigilant in washing your hands, wearing a facemask when in public, practicing social distancing, and praying for our healthcare workers, the sick, and their families.  If you need us, we’re still available.

Chip Grantham, Senior Pastor
