Message from Pastor Walter

July 6, 2021

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.   Psalm 18:2

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Many of us are watching the tropical storm named Elsa.
We do not expect this to have a major impact in our area, but we are watching it closely. However, this is a good reminder that we are entering the more active portion of the hurricane season. We encourage everyone to consider their plans should extreme severe weather hit our area. Also, please consider being aware of those around you who may need some assistance. Here is some information about how a storm system may affect worship services at Anastasia Church locations.

All Anastasia Church locations adjust worship services together.
In a hurricane/tropical storm situation, decisions that are communicated will affect all locations. This simplifies communication tremendously and reduces confusion. 

The schedule of worship services will not normally change during a:
– tropical storm watch
– tropical storm warning
– hurricane watch. 

During an active tropical storm, decisions are made based on local conditions.
For instance, if conditions are such that bridges to Anastasia Island are closed or expected to be closed, then church services will be cancelled. A notice will be sent out to this email list and will be posted on the main church website.

During a hurricane warning and during an evacuation notice, all services and ministries will be cancelled immediately.
Members and attenders will be encouraged to seek safety for themselves and their families. The church office will be closed. Weekday childcare will be closed.

If you are concerned or unsure how to plan for your personal safety during a storm event, please contact us at so we can reach out and help ensure your safety and well-being.

Want to find a place to serve? One of our core values at Anastasia is “Serving is our privilege” and there are lots of opportunities to do so. If you feel led to serve at one of our Anastasia Church sites, feel free to contact us by email.

Your Servant in Christ,
Pastor Walter
