                            In Memory of Cliff Collins
Please join us in prayers for the family, friends, church family, and all who knew our brother in Christ, Cliff Collins. He was a gifted speaker of the Truth and maybe, someday in Heaven, we'll know just how many people he helped lead to Christ. He was a family man, served his country well, inspired many with his lessons from the pulpit, friend to many, was a phone call away for any need, and a soul winner. We will miss him dearly, but are comforted by the scriptures that assure us he has recieved a great reward for his service to the Lord and we have the hope to be able to be with him again in heaven, where he will be wearing that glorious crown that he wanted so bad in this life. Praise the Lord for the hope of eternal salvation!!

                        Digital Connect Bible Study  

When God closes one door, he opens up another one. During the Corona virus pandemic, our good brothers in Christ Jonathen Jenkins and Eric Owens began a virtual Gospel Meeting on Facebook and Youtube. They aquired some of the best speakers in the brotherhood and have gotten a good response from the viewers. They are continuing this effort and it is highly recommended to anyone wanting to hear the Gospel preached as intended. They are expanding the efforts by offering Bible Study courses in the day by some of the best highly qualified teachers. It is a great way to introduce someone to the Gospel or you may want to present it to your congregation. All previous lessons are archived and are all worthy of your time. Please visit their pages on Facebook and Youtube and check out everything offered, you won't be disappointed.




                       Yuma services now on the radio

We have recently added another way to hear the Gospel here at the church of Christ at Yuma. We are now broadcasting over the radio on FM 90.5. If you are in the immediate area or would like to come sit on the parking lot and enjoy our sevices, you are welcome to join us. This will insure social distancing for those who are concerned about transmitting the virus and allow for hearing the complete service from beginning to end. We also have individual cups with the two emblems for communion. Morning Worship is at 11:00 a.m., evening worship at 6 p.m., and Wednesday evening Bible Study at 7:00 pm.  




                                      Corona Virus

The following schedule of events, as well as those on our calendar page, are pending due to the Corona Virus.

House to House Heart to Heart


We have recently begun to send out a fine publication, House to House Heart to Heart, to folks in the immediate area. It is a great introduction to the church of Christ with very well written articles and a small Bible quiz, along with contact information for our congregation here at Yuma (perhaps that led you here, that's a good thing). We have tracts for each publication sent out if you are further interested in any one of the articles written. Also, we have a 10 part Bible Study written by the same authors that we would LOVE to share with you.

As always, you are invited to come worship with us here at the meeting house. Or, if you would like for us to come to you to find out more of our beliefs or explain some of what you've read, please contact us. We want to share the Good News of Jesus Christ and want to include you!

House to House Heart to Heart also has an excellent web site and we invite you to check that out as well.
