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 and his wife 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 has 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.
