All actvities are still cancelled.

Please scroll to the bottom for updates concerning the re-opening of Morning Star for public worship. I will be updating the information there as time progresses. Please continue to pray for one another and for your Pastor. God is still on the throne and still blessing all His children.

Though things have improved somewhat, we are still waiting for a steady decline in numbers. As long as things continue to go up and down we must wait. Until then please join with me in praying to God and asking Him to take this plague away. Scripture has the answer for us all and it's found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. Read it and do what it says and you will join in with believers everywhere.


If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)

To be a loving and encouraging church that aids to build an individuals relationship with God and with the body of believers.

Here at Morning Star all are welcome. No matter where you are in life, there will be a word delivered to inspire and uplift you in knowing Jesus Christ.

Depths of Love 2020

Once again we will be helping needy families for Christmas 2020. Please make donation to our Depths of Love Ministry to help make someone's Christmas a reality. Our goal is to help five (5) families have what so many others enjoy. Once we secure the five families, we will also let you know the ages of the children and whether they are a boy or girl so that we can purchase gifts for the children. Don't miss your opportunity for blessings! We reap what we sow, so we bless others we shall also be blessed.


A new video will be coming soon!

Preparations for Re-opening

September, 2020

As we begin to look at re-opening the church, we are watching the current numbers for COVID-19 in NC. The number of confirmed cases continues to rise, therefore we are not looking at re-opening any time soon. We understand one reason for the numbers rising is that more testing is being done. Part of these numbers are from people who have had COVID-19 and recovered. If we re-open too soon, it is still possible for one who has had the disease to infect another who has not. Therefore we must be even more careful to re-open.

Once we re-open, there will be one way into and out of the church. We will use the vestibule and will have touch-less sanitizing stations set up for members to use. Each member will be asked to wear a mask and social distancing will begin at the entrance to the church. Please come early as you will be asked to stand 6 feet apart (by family). As you enter the vestibule you may utilize the hand sanitizing stations (in turn), and you must wait for an usher to seat you as the seating arrangements will be different due to us implementing social distancing inside the church. We ask your patience in all this because your safety is our concern.

We will also be implementing our own form of contact tracing. This means we will be keeping a record of who sat where in the church just in case someone unfortunately tests positive. We would contact the member(s) who were seated near that individual informing them of the need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks.

We feel this will help to prevent an outbreak within the church body.

For now, please note that the following Morning Star events are cancelled:

1. BBTM Retreat and Men's day - Cancelled

2. Church Anniversary - Cancelled

3. November Conference - to be determined

 There will be more to follow.....
