A quick update from the Athens Church of Christ

Due to the recent spike in covid cases even within our own church, we will not meet in person as a congregation at the building this week (January 2). Instead, Kindred will be delivering an online message to be streamed at 10:30 am via the church’s Facebook page and website. Feel free to meet in smaller groups to pray, sing, share communion and watch the message together, to the degree that you feel safe and comfortable. We will resume in person Sunday meetings January 9.

Don’t forget our CONGREGATIONAL FAST begins Sunday, January 9, and runs through Sunday, January 30. This year, we are asking all disciples to have 3 key areas of spiritual focus for which they choose to fast: 
1) A churchwide focus  
2) A family group-shared focus (one for which your family group fasts together)
3) A personal/household focus

Also, the fast will feature 3 consecutive FRIDAY NIGHTS OF PRAYER, each beginning at 7 pm and running through 8:30 pm. We are asking all disciples who can attend to do so.
Friday, January 14 — The men will assemble and pray at the church
Friday, January 21 — The women will assemble and pray at the church
Friday, January 28 — The entire congregation will assemble and pray at the church

Finally, below is the church’s MIDWEEK SCHEDULE for the first quarter of the year. This should help Family Group Leaders plan accordingly.
