Baptism on June 5, 2021

Pastor Chuck Meathrell and Lillian Royer June 5. 2021

It was a great day to have a baptism! Lillian Royer had been waiting about a year due to COVID-19 shutdowns and was now able to publicly share her decision to follow Jesus Christ. During the morning worship service on June 5, 2021 at the Pataskala Seventh Day Baptist Church the pastor Chuck Meathrell had the privilege of baptizing her. The baptism was happily witnessed by the church congregation including Lillian’s proud parents.

January 30, 2021 – Youth Sabbath

On Sabbath Day January 30, 2021 we had a very special worship service led by the young people in our congregation. Following the opening prayer led by Josiah Van Horn, there was a Youth Choir singing a song arranged by Pastor Chuck Meathrell titled “Let Them Come”.

Following that was praise time and then a Responsive Reading led by Cora Patterson and Davis Meathrell. The Children’s Message that day was a puppet show by Fur & the Gang.

Lillian Van Horn gave a well prepared and thought out message titled “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. Then following the closing hymn Emma Van Horn gave the benediction. It was a blessing to have our young people participating in leading the worship!

Rev. Chuck Meathrell To Be Our New Pastor

We are happy to announce Rev. Chuck Meathrell as the new pastor at Pataskala Seventh Day Baptist Church.  The church has been without a pastor for 7 months following the retirement of Pastor Robert Van Horn in October. Chuck and his wife Jessica and their family of 3 boys will be moving to Ohio from South Carolina in mid May.

Rev. Meathrell received his MDiv from Columbia International University in Columbia, SC and was ordained by his previous church, Jacob’s Well Church also in Columbia, SC.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic, he and Jessica have been leading the church through virtual worship services from their home (check Sermons & Worship on this website or Youtube). We will begin regular services in person at the church located at 12161 Broad Street SW in Pataskala, OH when we can safely meet together.

WELCOME TO OHIO & OUR CHURCH MEATHRELLS!

Church Goal to Retire the Mortgage

Fifteen years ago our church bought the property at 12161 Broad Street SW on the western edge of Pataskala, Ohio.  After 15 years our church has decided it’s time to pay off our mortgage loan with the Seventh Day Baptist Memorial Fund.

We have been in the current church building since the fall of 2004. While the church had met in previous years at rented facilities, we had never had our own building before!

If you would like to be a part of our “Retire the Mortgage” efforts, you can make an online contribution through the secure giving feature of our website. The link is below.

Or you can send contributions to Treasurer, Seventh Day Baptist Church, 12161 Broad Street SW, Pataskala, OH 43062. Please designate your gift toward “Retire the Mortgage”. Even small gifts add up & will make a difference!

Make your dollars count TWICE! A matching challenge has been received so that every dollar received between now and July 4, 2020 will be matched one-for-one! Now is the time to give!
