Hello Church Family,

Unfortunately, due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the Chewelah Seventh-day Adventist Church is closed until further notice.

Instead of pressing together physically, we will press together virtually using the GoToMeeting online tool; see the connection information below.

If you would like to join us and need help, please contact one of the following individuals: Webmaster Steve Graham, Head Elder Dave Reid, or Pastor Howard Tello to get connected. It's free for you, and easy to use, so don't hesitate, join us!

During this uncertain time of history, more than ever, it is important for us to focus on our relationship with the Lord and make sure our hearts and minds are focused on Him; letting fear and panic rule your life is not healthy, but neither is disregarding the prudent advice of many counselors.

Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. Isaiah 26:20

The Lord is my light and my Salvation; whom (or what?) shall I fear? Pslam 27:1

Rejoice in the Lord always! Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all [mankind]. The Lord is at hand.Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supllication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 6,7

Indeed, we do come to You, for You are the Lord our God. Truly, in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains; Truly, in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel. Jeremiah 3: 22,23 (part)

While we are sheltering at home and keeping our physical distance during the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, here are a few resources to help keep you spiritually full of life and peace.

There are a couple ways you can continue returning tithes and offerings while we are sheltering at home.

      Note: Be sure to include a note regarding the fund(s) included if you do not have a tithe envelope.
  2. Use the Chewelah Seventh-day Adventist church online giving platform (this is a popular option).
