in-person worship resumed

The shepherds have decided to begin in-person worship and Sunday morning Bible study at our building for those who are comfortable doing so.

As we did previously, there are numerous precautions in place to assist us in staying safe during our meeting, including sitting at a distance in the auditorium, individual Lord’s Supper servings, and an offering box in the lobby. Our building has been sanitized from top to bottom and is ready for us to resume gathering.

In making this decision, we have taken into consideration what the local schools and other churches are doing and we have consulted a study produced by MIT, entitled COVID-19 Indoor Safety Guide, and it affirms that for people wearing masks and keeping their distance, a room the size of our auditorium can hold 100 people for up to 2 hours without spreading an infection. For these reasons, we believe that conditions are safe enough for us to meet.

We will still broadcast the live stream of our Sunday school at 9:30 and our worship at 10:30 for those who choose to remain at home. Each individual and family should make their own decision about whether to return at this time after making an assessment of their own unique circumstances, health condition, and needs.

We look forward to seeing how God will bless us as we work to rebuild our congregation in the days ahead.

The Montwood church of Christ

The Montwood church of Christ is a non-denominational bilingual church that looks to God’s word in the Bible as an authority and guide for all we do. We are a loving, accepting family with a common belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God. We believe that it is by the grace of God that we have been brought into an eternal relationship with Him.

The church family is a community of real people who have all types of hurts, pains, discouragements, and problems, just like anyone else. We come together because God has forgiven our sins and is changing us into something new. It is our aim to personally know the love of God, powerfully show that love through our daily lives, and prayerfully go with God’s love into our community.

As a group of people, we experience Jesus: his love, compassion, and grace. He fills us with His healing Spirit and calls us to follow him. The Montwood Family is a place where you too can experience love, acceptance, and forgiveness. If you are searching for a church home, we'd like you to know that there's a special place here just for you!

If you have not yet committed your life to Jesus, we would appreciate the opportunity to assist you in your faith journey through group or individual Bible study.
