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.
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!
It was a joy to witness the baptism of five people at our church during the Sabbath Worship service on October 24, 2020! Davis Meathrell, Ava Van Horn, Cora Patterson, Josiah Van Horn, and Andras Temesvary all professed their faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance as Lord and Saviour.
Here’s a video of the service. Enjoy!
Continuing in this series on the Gospel of John, Pastor Chuck’s sermon on October 10, 2020 was titled “All This for a Purpose” and was based on John 9.
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!

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!
