Sundays: 9am Bible Study, 10am Worship 336-885-6016

Stay Informed During the Pandemic

Being the church is about more than Sunday morning worship. Unlike eating out or going to a movie theater, being the church isn’t something we can really afford to opt-out of for a few weeks, especially during times of heightened anxiety.

We need each other and our shared pursuit of God because, well, that’s the whole thing.

So, while we are preparing for extended disruptions to our Sunday morning gathering due to the coronavirus, we aren’t canceling “church” and our belonging to one another. On the contrary, these days ahead will provide opportunities for us to be present to one another in creative and sustaining ways. Read on for more information about how to keep being the church.

Stay in the KNOW

We will be creating resources and reflections through this season of uncertainty. But creating the content is only half of the process — you have to be able to access new content easily. We have added email/text updates as a seamless way to stay informed and encouraged. Before reading any further, make sure you are set up to receive email/text message updates from your church leaders.


  • Share this website with your friends and families. Encourage them to sign up for text updates so our efforts can reach more people.
  • Please take time to engage in our weekly worship experience, which will include Sunday School at 9am and Worship at 10am.
  • Make sure you are signed up to receive weekly emails for the Prayer List and Updates on what is happening in our community. You can do this on the Contact page.
  • On our Contact Us page you can send us prayer requests you have, and please let us know if we have your permission to share with the larger community.
  • GIVING is the place where you can support the work of Emerywood Baptist. We want to keep our ministries sustainable through this crisis, so that on the other side we are healthy and ready to expand our work into a hurting world.
  • Finally, visit all of our previous website pages from before the crisis like Past Sunday teachings, Staff Info, About Us, and more. This set of pages reminds us that there will be a future after this moment of crisis, gesturing at hope with some normal content from before the virus spread.

“Our commitment to being an inclusive church is not based on a social theory or the ways of the culture, but our belief that the outstretched arms of Jesus on the cross are a sign of the very love of God reaching out to us all."
