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.

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!
