The Church now uses an automated contact system called One Call Now®. This system allows us to contact everyone at once for Service Cancellations, Prayer Chain, and Event or Meeting Reminders.

Most of you provided information earlier this year, but with this new system, we can create more sub-groups than we had previously, (like Ladies Fellowship, Youth Group, Church Board, Teachers, Singers, etc., should something need sent to those groups specifically.) and we want to make sure that people are only getting the information that they want.


To submit your information or update your information securely online, fill out the form on this page.

If you no longer wish to be contacted by the church, Please contact Steven Hughes. Call: (740) 344-4292 or Email:

Why the Switch?

At one time pay phones donned every city block and families adjusted rabbit ears to tune the television set. Additionally, the manual call tree was developed to send messages to large groups. When information needed to be communicated, one person called several others and in turn, those folks called a few more, and so on. Even though the call tree phone method was far from perfect, organization members tirelessly dialed and relayed messages, hoping that most of the organization, congregation or team would somehow get the message (and that it would be accurate). The phone or call tree is still in use today, even for important or time sensitive messages. Unfortunately, it is prone to miscommunication and long delays.

One Call Now simplifies sending fellowship announcements, volunteer requests, prayer chain requests, event reminders, funeral notifications and dozens of other important messages with a sophisticated, affordable church calling system.
