Church from Home

Read our weekly update here.

As our nation and world deal with the coronavirus outbreak, The Presbyterian Church of Danville is committed to continuing to glorify God and express God's love in our community as a joyful fellowship of Christ's disciples. 

 

At this time, based on recommendations from the CDC, we can best serve our community by staying home. We have suspended all in-person gatherings at the church until April 20th. We invite you to continue to worship with us from your home. 

Church Office Hours

You will be able to communicate with the church office by phone and email each day between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm Monday thru Friday. Note that Lacey will only be working from the church office between 8:30 am and noon and then will continue from home between 12:30 and 3:00 pm. If you need to come to church, please call Lacey in advance. We strongly encourage you to stay home and communicate with the church through email and phone. 

Staff
Amy, Zach, Caroline and Emma are working from home. Tim will be on site during his regular hours. We will continue to pay all our staff, including Sunday nursery staff, at the 2020 budgeted rates. 

Caring for our Members

The Stephen Ministers and Deacons have organized a system for calling each household in our congregation, including regular visitors. If you have not heard from anyone, please let Lacey know at church@presbydan.org. Information from the calls will allow us to stay in touch with each other during this pandemic and make sure that everyone has access to what they need.

Caring for our Community
In response to the lack of available supplies, we donated all our stored food for Soups On Us to the Salvation Army and all our unopened boxes of gloves to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center (see our Facebook page for pictures).

In addition, the Local Mission Committee has granted an additional $2,000 to Grace Café to help them carry out their mission to feed folks during this challenging time.

One way you can help our community is to respond to the 2020 Census, which you should have received by now. The information collected by the U.S. Census Bureau determines the level of federal funding and number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, among other things.
