Church Office & CLC Closure

 
As the ministry team and staff continues to work from home, we remain available to assist you in any way possible. Contact us at office@cocws.org or 901-761-2007 and let us know how we can help you or if you have any questions. Prepackaged communion wafer and juice sets are still available Mon-Fri, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM.  *Call 761-2007 to arrange a pick up time.


COVID Vaccines Available in Shelby County

Shelby County Health Department is currently offering an online registration for receiving vaccines for people in eligible categories. This now includes people who are 75 years old or older, in addition to those already qualifying because they are in groups covered by the 1a1 category. Some may want the vaccine themselves, and some may want to be sure elderly loved ones are vaccinated.

Slots are filling up quickly, so you will need to check the sign up a few times daily for open slots. Make appointments online using SignUpGenius here. Consider arranging assistance for any members who need help signing up online or with transportation. The vaccine will be our best tool yet for protecting ourselves and those we love—and regaining normal social interactions when enough people have been vaccinated.

Let’s care for one another in this very practical way.

 

Virtual Sunday Worship extended through January 31

We are extending our live stream 9:30 A.M. Sunday morning worship through Sunday January 31st.  The service will also be available later in the day for viewing on the White Station website. Our in-person worship services at 8 AM, 9:30 AM and 11 AM are cancelled out of concern for Shelby County’s increased COVID cases, giving families an opportunity to be together, safer at home.

Thank You Note from Vivian Maher

To my wonderful and loving church family. I want to thank each and every one of you for the kind words of love and encouragement, the prayers, and for the food you provided me and my family during this difficult time of my dear, John's passing. Please remember me in your prayers. With all my love, Vivian Maher.

 


Prayer Request on Behalf of Dr. Jim Wheless

Jim asks that we pray for a change of heart for the people working in the hospitals that are afraid of the vaccines. He said that 100% of the doctors at LeBonheur where he works have had the vaccine, and they are concerned about the ones that believe the social media comments and scare tactics. 

Thank you all for praying for relief from the current pandemic, wisdom for those developing and testing new vaccines and treatments and for good health and calm for those in the health care field. In my 45 years of medicine I have never seen a time with so many anxious colleagues and co-workers at the hospital. They need to know they are being prayed for daily. Thanks for supporting in prayer these health professionals.

Family Accomplishment

Enoch and Jeannine Thweatt have written a 274 page book entitled, Gathering the Clouds.  During these times of frequent attacks on Christian faith and teachings, all believers everywhere need to strengthen their faith in the God of Heaven who loves all people and wants all who believe to resist every attack by Satan and his followers with a determined faith. Strengthening our faith is what the book is all about.

To take advantage of the lowest rates, there must be ten or more orders for each of the soft cover and the hard cover books. The soft covers price is $7.32, including TN Sales Tax. The hard cover price is $15.09, including TN Sales Tax. There are no S&H charges. Please do not pay until we have the books in hand, ready for distribution sometime in Mid-January. For more information on how to order, contact Jeannine Thweatt at (615) 305-5217.
