Pray 5:19

main image

Psalm 33:6 says, "By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host."  We serve a mighty God who reigns over all His creation.  Through the perfect, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, His church has access into the throne room of grace.  Thus, a staggering truth is that we serve a God who is all-powerful and hears our prayer.  1 Peter 3:12 says, "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer."  Prayer is the one of the greatest privileges that the people of God have.  In times of trouble, the people of God are called to pray!  


Over the next 5 days, the SCC family will have a time of focused prayer for God to move among the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are calling this prayer initiative "Pray 5:19."  The plan is that each day at 5:19 p.m. the church will collectively focus our prayer on a specific category.  It may be helpful to set a reminder for 5:19 p.m.

COVID-19 Update and Plan of Action

main image

SCC Family,

As many of you know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal and State governments have asked churches and other organizations to limit the size of events and public gatherings to less than 10 individuals.  For SCC, this primarily affects our ability to meet for Wednesday Night Activities and our Sunday morning worship gathering.

Last night church leadership met to put a plan in place for this unique season.  We desire to continue to provide opportunities for you to worship with your family and personally grow in your faith.  We will continue to monitor the situation on a weekly basis.  


We will continue to record an audio sermon that will be posted on our website every Sunday, beginning this weekend.  Starting March 29, we hope to also provide a video livestream of church prayer and teaching on the SCC Facebook page (www.facebook.com/stockhamcommunitychurch).


To supplement our Wednesday Night Activities, we will also post family resources and teaching on Wednesday evenings via Facebook.  

Prayer Correspondence

Please let Pastor Paul or myself know how we can continue to pray for your needs.  


Church outreach and operating expenses continue to be ongoing during this time.  To continue your giving, we are encouraging individuals to write checks made out to Stockham Community Church and send them to 401 Scott Street, Stockham NE 68818.  Another great option is to contribute by your bank's bill pay system.  

Thank you so much for your flexibility during this time.   Please watch for an upcoming church campaign to assist us in our efforts to minister as the church to our communities.  We look forward to once again gathering together in person to worship the living God.  

We will continue to keep you updated during this fluid time.  

Pastor Rick
