Welcome to Fairhope Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
We are glad you stopped by.
Our tagline is ‘Reach up to God, Reach into our hearts, Reach out to others.’
We are not a building, but a body of believers seeking God’s will for our lives.
It is no secret that we are in uncertain times as we deal with this Covid-19 pandemic. Since all in person activities are still suspended, we in an effort to try to maintain some semblance of normalcy are offering our Sunday worship services via Live Stream. Each Sunday at 10:30 am we will be live streaming an abbreviated service which can be viewed through the live stream tab on our website, fairhopechristian.org.
We have also started a drive in worship service. This service takes place in our north parking lot starting at 9:00 am. The caveat here is that everyone must stay in their cars and stay a reasonable distance from each other as they park. During this service we have music, prayers, scripture reading, a message and the sharing of communion. It is recommended that all who attend bring something they can use to resemble the bread and the cup (we use grape juice) so that when we partake, all can share in this moment of communion. This is one other way we are staying connected as a body of Christ.
The stay at home order has been amended to safer at home which means certain parts of our lives will be reopened. Currently Fairhope Christian Church is not one of them as we are taking a cautious approach knowing that there is still a large danger out there with this virus.
As of now there is no firm timeline in place for resuming in-person worship but we are continually monitoring the situation and making plans for when we do return to insure safety and peace of mind for all. Please bear with us as we attempt to make wise and thoughtful decisions trusting that God is with us and leading us.
We know this is hard as we all want to get back as soon as we can, and Lord willing, it will be sooner rather than later. But we as Christians are not deterred by the wait as we have been told time and time again of our need to wait on our Lord.
Psalm 27:14 tells us, Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Remember, we are not a building, we are a church and wherever we are, there also is the church.
May God bless and keep you as we move through this difficult time. All Glory be to God.
