We are sorry to announce that due to quite a few positive cases of Covid-19 in the area, we plan to have online church services for the next two Sabbaths, September 11th and 18th. The doors to the church will be open as we broadcast the services, but we encourage if you do come, to please take the proper precautions. There are masks available near the door of the church. We do not plan to have any children's Sabbath School classes either for the next two Sabbaths, due to many of the children being quarantined. We also do not plan to have a dinner after the services either. Thank you for your understanding of this matter. Two easy links for access to watch the online services are: https://www.facebook.com/murphysdachurch or https://www.murphysda.org/ .

Please PRAY for the Steps to Christ mailing going to 21,458 homes in our community. Pray the Holy Spirit to go before and open heart, for God's Blessing on each book that all will come to know Jesus, for an abundant response that many would request Bible Studies. Pray that we are prepared to receive those responses.
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Matthew 9:37
