BULLETIN 7/7/20:

To: Members & Friends of KPC 
Dear Members & Friends of Kanapaha: The rising numbers of COVID-19 cases has become a matter of great concern for myself and the members of the Session of Kanapaha Presbyterian Church. We are concerned with the safety of all those who choose to worship with us. On June 14th we opened worship service with limited numbers and following all the recommended social guidelines. 
This morning the Session met to discuss the results of the opening and whether we should continue. Session has agreed to stop meeting for worship in person until such time as the new case numbers are under control in the Gainesville area. Everyday there is new and conflicting information on this virus. I want to see you all but not when it could jeopardize your health. 
I understand meeting together is very important to all of us and, as some have mentioned, video is not the same. I am empathetic to this viewpoint but would like to remind you that “worship is the work” of God’s people. If you commit yourself to growing your worship and prayer life, God will surely meet you wherever you are.
The Session and I will do all we can to continue to encourage each of you on your faith journey in these trying times. To that end we will record Sunday readings and sermon on Saturday afternoon and have it available on YouTube for you on Sunday morning. We will continue with Bible Study notes for Tuesday mornings as well. You are welcome to call the pastor or the church with any concerns, prayer requests, praise reports, or suggestions for further ministry. 
Calls from the Nurture Committee will begin today to be certain as many as possible hears the news from us. If there is anyone you know that may not be on our email list please be a party of one and contact them. This letter will also be added to FaceBook and our webpage.
On a related note, an email went out last week with a link to the latest newsletter. If you need a copy mailed to you please leave a message on the office phone. Also, if you would like a copy of the Presbyterian Today magazine or the quarterly devotional contact the office. You may pick up a copy during office hours or it can be mailed to you upon request. 
I want you to know that your church officers are continuing to do the work of ministry behind the scenes. There are still bills to pay, grounds to be cared for, mission projects to fund and operate, and congregational concerns to be addressed. All these are being done through the work of faithful leaders and volunteers. 
We all, as the church of Jesus Christ, are essential workers for the kingdom and the congregation. If you feel you have time and talent to keep the church moving forward in these days please do not hide your light under a bushel. Remember to keep us all in prayer as we also pray for you.
Michaele RJ Wood 
Pastor, Kanapaha Presbyterian Church

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.
