Message from pastor keith:

Hello Church Family,

Our Bishop recommends if your county is in the "orange" or "red" hot zone (on the globalepidemics.org map) that you should have online worship services only.

Habersham County has moved from "orange" to "red" this week. In light of this recent change, it is imperative that we change our course of plan.

We will discontinue in-person worship starting this Sunday, July 26, until further notice.

We will continue to livestream from the Fellowship Hall at 10:00am.

You may look forward to a better sound system, plus hearing the piano and organ, when we move to livestreaming from the Sanctuary, beginning August 2nd. 

If you have questions, please email me: keith@clarkesvillefirstumc.org

If you watch our services online and want to donate during this time, your donation can be mailed to the church office or you may go online to our website to the GIVE tab.

Let us embrace our faith over fear while being proactive.


Pastor Keith

Current worship plan: fully online worship services beginning july 26th.
