Buckingham Church and COVID-19

"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



Dear Buckingham Church Members and friends.


After prayerful consideration our church leaders have decided to continue with our live online worship services through May 2, 2021, at which time we will begin a hybrid service schedule that will allow for us to gather together in the church itself or to participate in the worship services remotely at the same time. Please join us at 10:00 am Sunday mornings live on Zoom, Facebook or YouTube for an inspiring service. You can also watch the service here on the website by visiting the "Services" tab and selecting either "Virtual Services" on the drop down or "Children & Youth" for Sunday School themed videos. 


Pastor Shelly offers "A Journey Through the Book of Psalms" at noon each Wednesday. You can find that live on Facebook, or view it later either on YouTube or the home page. 


Our decisions to remain virtual for services and our current plan to move forward with a hybrid service model was and will continue to be made out of love for all our members and the desire to keep us all safe and well. We have had a team of church members who've been meeting weekly for several months who have been working to ensure the safety and well being of all who wish to participate in services, either in person or virtually.


In this time, let us pray for our church family and those around the globe whose lives and livelihoods have been impacted by the virus. Let us be God's heart and hands, reaching out to those who will be impacted with love, aid and care.


Let us remember, we’re all in this together. If you are able, please keep the financial needs of the church in mind as we continue to need your support caring for our community both within the church and at large. You can give in one of the following ways:

Let's do everything we can to stay in community and reach out to each other in love.
