Dear Arden Church Family,
All activities at Arden Presbyterian Church, including worship, are suspended until further notice to diminish the spread of the COVID-19 virus. These are unprecedented times and each day seems to bring some new dimension. We trust you know that you are all greatly loved by your church session, diaconate, and staff and we are endeavoring to meet the challenges of not being able to be physically together. At this point, we have no way of knowing how long we will be in this mode, so we need to remain calm, pray for one another, communicate with each other, and trust in the Lord’s loving providence and gracious sovereignty in the days ahead.

Our church ministries are seeking to continue to serve you through technology. However, if you have any questions, please contact the Church Office at email@example.com or 828-684-7221.
Online Sermon Messages: Interim Pastor Dwight Basham will continue providing weekly sermon messages available online by 11:00 a.m. each Sunday.

Congregational Care: Our ruling elders are reaching out to you either through phone calls or emails to pray with you and to ask if you have any questions or needs that we can facilitate through our diaconal mercy ministry. You may also contact the Church Office if you have any needs so we can serve you with Christ’s mercy.
Tithes and Offerings: Please continue your faithful tithing and Faith Promise giving for global missions either online or by sending a check to the Church Office c/o of our business administrator Mr. Dan Berger at 2215 Hendersonville Road, Arden, NC 28704 as general operations and salaries at the church continue.

You can also check your county’s Health and Human Services website for drive-through testing sites.
Prayer: Please pray for the sick, for health care workers, for the vulnerable, for the unemployed, for our leaders, for students and families, and for churches.
Trusting in Christ,
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27
