Announcements

WORSHIP SERVICE ATTENDANCE UPDATE

All church members and guests are invited to attend church every Sunday, with the ABF Room utilized as an overflow room. The ABF room will seat 12 households (socially distanced), joining the live stream on a television and speaker. Our current attendance rotation will end, and Sunday morning seating will be first come, first served. Thus, those who wish to sit in the sanctuary should plan to arrive early. However, there may also be some folks with kids who prefer to sit in the ABF Room for added convenience, and they are welcomed to sit there straight away. And the live stream will remain available for those not ready to worship in person.

Our worship service time continues to be at 10:30 am.

Masks remain required for now, as a decision of the pastors (with the exception of kids 10 and under, and those with a medical exception). We will continue monitoring the state of COVID in Bexley and other communities, and make other adjustments as needed. Thank you for your patience. For the rest of the update please visit the Paramount Church website via this link here.

Community Groups

Community Group

Community Groups meet weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. Visit our Community Group page to reach out to a leader.

God created us to live in gospel community, under the word and rooted in the person of Jesus Christ. Our focus is to bring glory to Christ, to orient our lives around the gospel, to focus on change, and fulfill our mission as Christ’s ambassadors. To keep a proper balance and guard our Community Groups against revolving around something other than the gospel, we pursue at least four primary goals for life with one another:

1. Progressive Sanctification (Growing Into the Image of Christ)
2. Caring for One Another
3. Biblical Fellowship
4. Stewardship of Spiritual Gifts

Prayers and Praises

127 Days of Prayer: Wassulu of Mali, Guinea, and Cote d’Ivoire

Prayer

(WAH-soo-loo) - In recent weeks, news of grave concern has reached workers who are unable to travel in and out of the Wassulu area due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Malian ministry partners learned that suspicious armed men were spotted in a key Wassulu region near "Dalton," a Wassulu village where God has notably been at work. The latest update is that Malian military personnel were being sent into the area due to a heightened concern for the wellbeing of the regional residents. You may recall previous appeals for prayer, as Mali is "ground zero" for Islamic extremist operations in the Sahel. Please pray for safety and boldness as the Lord continues to direct the work among the Wassulu in "Dalton." Pray for the believers to remain strong and steadfast. Various extremist factions may very well plot and prepare for attacks like those that they have executed elsewhere in the nation, so pray that vulnerable villagers will not believe their empty promises or extremist rhetoric that is used to pit village against village--often due to ethnic differences. Pray that the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ will reign and that the multitude of seeds planted in and near "Dalton" will come to life by the work on the Holy Spirit. ("name changed.)
