​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​News and Upcoming Event

Community Safety:  We remain focused on the health and safety of our members, visitors and our communities. CDC is encouraging people to take advantage of the flu vaccine; the CDC continues to revise their recommendations, so we encourage you to check with local healthcare agencies and your doctor if you are not feeling well and/or test positive or has been around someone who tests positive.

         You should always practice good handwashing at all the time. The CDC advises that COVID viruses will always be with us and continues to mutate, so we have to treat it the same as we do annual 'flu virus'. Please continue to check your temperature daily and if you are not feeling well stay home and contact your healthcare provider for instruction on what to do to feel better and protect others.
           Be safe and do not forget to check on your neighbors.   Please contact Roy Stephenson if you have any suggestions or questions regarding worship service, bible study classes and/or devotional.


Wednesday evening devotional classes @ 6:00 pm 

        If you try to sign on to our Wednesday call-in free conference class and there is no one on the line, please contact Roy Stephenson to make sure the class has not been cancelled.  We have started to resume in person classes at the church, but the conference call is still an option if you are unable to attend in person.

            Please continue to monitor this website and/or contact Roy Stephenson, Minister at (828) 557-8882 or email him at MurphyNCchurchofchrist@gmail.com  if you have questions or suggestions about the classes.

            We are not limited to the number people on the conference call, so the more the better. At about 5 minutes to 6:00 pm EST dial this phone number 1-425-436-6324. You will be asked to enter the access code, enter the following number 5155915#. Once you hear other voices on your phone, introduce yourself (say your name) then mute your phone and unmute when you have a question or want to make a comment. We hope the discussion topics will be challenging and enjoyable in helping us in our goal to Grow in Christ. Look forward to your participation. Feel free to tell others about how to join our class. If you have any special requests for the next series/topics, please contact Roy Stephenson. 

Sunday Morning Bible Study @ 10:00 am 

After class time is allotted to fellowship before worship service begins. We are using the Gospel Advocates Adult Bible Study as a guide for discussion of each series. 

            At the beginning of each series, books are provided and are yours to keep as future reference materials. The Gospel Advocate series for the spring has arrived and we will focus on biblical personages as Longfellow wrote, "Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime".  When you arrive for Bible study, please pick up a booklet from the table in the back of the church when they become available.

Sunday Morning Worship service begins at 11:00 a.m.

Roy Stephenson is being treated for a foot infection, so Dean Wray has volunteered to deliver the sermon on June 4, 2023. The doctor informed Roy June 1, 2023, that his foot has healed so he could resume teaching provided he does it sitting. 

As always, we encourage members to bring your family and friends to worship services whenever they are in town.
