BULLETIN 9/24/20:


The first Sunday in October is designated as World Communion Sunday, which celebrates our oneness in Christ with all our brothers and sisters around the world.  Paul tells us that we are to “discern the body” when we partake of Holy Communion, mindful that we note our relationship to all our brothers and sisters in Christ in the celebration.  It is appropriate that World Communion Sunday is also a time when we receive the annual Peace and Global Witness Offering as a way of continuing the ancient Christian practice of sharing what we have with brothers and sisters in need.  Our own Pat Stump will speak to the offering during this week's worship service.

We at Kanapaha will be sharing communion on World Communion Sunday, the first Sunday of October, [October 4, 2020] with an outdoor worship service in the church courtyard. We ask that those who plan to attend wear masks while on site and refrain from close personal contact [such as hugging] during this time to assure the safety of all attending. 
  • It would be helpful if you could bring your own lawn chair so as to limit our need of moving furniture outside and sanitizing it before returning it inside.
  • You will be asked to social distance - 6 ft apart and only groups who have been quarantined in the same place during the pandemic permitted to sit together. 
  • Communion elements will be prepared and served to you by assigned elders. We ask that no one be moving around at that time.
  • Remember please to watch for each other's safety. This is not a time to assert personal rights but a time to demonstrate our love and care for each other as God's family. Please abide by the safety guidelines. 
  • If you need to use the facilities please limit numbers in the restroom to family units or a single individual and keep your mask on indoors.
  • If there is a bona fide medical reason you cannot wear a mask let the pastor know ahead of time and we will do our best to accommodate your need without jeopardizing the safety of you or others.
  • I know it is our nature to "visit a minute" at the close of service but please remember the safety protocols then as well. 
For those of you who are not comfortable attending in person we are working on a live feed to YouTube and will try our best to have that ready for Oct 4. We will let you know if we can make that available.
 We will record the service and post it to YouTube as we have been doing these last months. It will be available that afternoon. 
Lastly, if you could let us know you plan to attend that would be helpful in preparing the elements and necessary seating space. It's been awhile since we have been together and with COVID we simply don't know how many folks for which to prepare. We want to be certain everyone is comfortable and allow for social distancing.

We will begin opening the church office on May 11, 2020, for four (4) hours per day, Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to 1 PM. We ask that you continue doing as much as possible by phone or email. If there is something that you must do in the office please make an appointment.

"Kanapaha Presbyterian Church- Rooted in History and Relevant for Today" by Kendal Norris, The Village Journal, August 15, 2016

Among the most steadfast historical landmarks of Alachua County, Florida, stands Kanapaha Presbyterian Church.  This wood frame gothic church, located in a field along Archer Road at SW 75th Street, is recognized as the "mother church" for Presbyterian churches in Gainesville, Archer, Micanopy, McIntosh, and Ocala.  

God has provided for us a delightfully peaceful environment on the outskirts of Gainesville. Our hope is to provide you with an atmosphere of welcome, acceptance and affirmation that enables each to explore and develop their own relationship with God in Jesus Christ.

To this day, we celebrate worship in the Sanctuary which was built in 1886, still adorned with the original pews, stained glass windows, kerosene chandelier, and church bell whose peal calls us away from a spinning world to rejoice in the word of God, to sing long-cherished hymns, and to nurture our spirit through good fellowship.
