Thank you again for your patience during this challenging time!

 

Are all services cancelled? If so, do you offer online services?

We currently offer in-person services most Sunday mornings (beginning at 10am and ending at approximately 11am). All Sunday School, Sunday evening youth, and Tuesday evening Bible study services, as well as all large group activities and events in the near future, have been cancelled. You can find all the latest news on cancellations, postponements, etc. by visiting and/or bookmarking our COVID-19 Response page. And yes! We offer online services. You can find our videos here, or on YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook.  You can also find our children’s videos above or at www.tgsmKidsWeekly.com.

 

Is the church office closed?

The church office is operating on limited hours or by appointment. You may still contact individual pastors and staff via the Contact page above, or by texting, calling or e-mailing Pastor Kenny at (301)302-9825 or lead.pastor@mytgsm.com

 

Who do I contact for hospital visitation, home visitation or funeral needs?

Contact Pastor Kenny. Please just keep in mind that medical centers, hospitals and funeral homes currently have extremely tight restrictions in place regarding visitation and services. We’re also taking precautionary measures in situations where we might normally visit someone in their home. We aren’t worried you’ll make us sick… we don’t want to inadvertently put you at risk! That said, don’t hesitate to contact us. We can walk you through current restrictions, answer questions and provide support in whatever capacity we are permitted and able. 

 

Can my small group or ministry still have meetings?

Most small groups are beginning to meet again with precautions (like masks) and physical distancing measures in place (Shepherd’s Groups, Hearts of Love, Easter Seals, etc). Please contact group leaders or Pastor Kenny for more information.

 

Do you offer anything for children online?

We currently offer kids’ videos, class content and more online! Look for new and exciting ways for your children and grandchildren to learn about Jesus, stay connected with teachers and each other, and more this summer as well.
 

What about teens and young adults?

Yes! Our youth group is conducting studies and services online and in-person (during Sunday in-person services), and there are a ton of surprises and innovations being utilized. Please email our Student Ministries Team Leader, Bella Morganthal, if you have any questions or would like your teenager to be a part of our online youth group!
 

I’m struggling to answer tough questions my children are asking…

Don’t hesitate to contact our pastors and ask for help! We’re available. Our TGSM Kids Weekly videos are also a great resource. The doors may be closed but our ministry to your family is not!  
 

How do I still give my tithe and offering?

We don’t yet offer online giving. However, you can mail your tithe or offering to 19763 Longmeadow Rd, Hagerstown, MD, 21742. You can also email our secretary, Lisa Mowen, if you would like to learn about an option that allows your bank to send tithes and offering checks for you. Currently all mail is being held at the post office and picked up by staff, so your checks aren’t at risk of being stolen. Mail won’t be sitting in the mailbox at the church! We appreciate your continued obedience to God, worship and stewardship. We don’t take tithes and offerings, we receive joyful tithes and offerings. There’s a big difference.
 

Who do I contact with prayer needs?

Any of our staff or pastors. We have a weekly prayer list, Facebook prayer groups and more. Please don’t hesitate to share your needs so your church family can support you in prayer!
