Hayward church of Christ


Welcome to the Hayward church of Christ website.  Please take a few minutes to browse around and look us over.  It is our aim to encourage, strengthen, and offer the way of salvation that God has revealed in His word--the Bible.  We also want to provide resources and Biblically sound material for you to use in personal study.  Feel free to contact us and let us know what you think. Or, better yet, come worship with us when you have the opportunity.

ATTENTION: ( This weeks bulletin is posted.  7:40 P.M. Friday, Sept.18th) The "Barnabas list" is with the bulletin and has been updated again for August. (Explains all of the people on the prayer list in the bulletin) 


NO Food giveaway  Monday... 



We will meet for morning and evening worship at the scheduled times, but not morning or Wednesday evening Bible class just yet.  

We still need to be vigilant to protect each other. 

This is for those who feel comfortable in public, and are not ill.


What to expect when returning to Worship:


  • When entering the building, your temperature will be scanned.  (no touch)
  • If you are asked how you are today... it's a serious question.  Please answer honestly.  If you don't feel well,  please stay home.  
  • We will only seat in alternating pew rows.  
  • Lords' supper will be single serving packaged or normal trays will only be handled by the server with protective equipment. (mask,gloves)
  • Doors will be opened to reduce surface contact, so please keep noise down in the lobby if you arrive late or have to exit during services.
  • Carry a mask, use it when appropriate. 
  • We have purchased hands free appliances in the restrooms and will continue to clean surfaces as well as possible.
  • Brother Miller has taken a class on sanitizing and virus abeyance.
  • More information in the bulletins as they come.   




The bulletin will be online Saturday evening or Sunday morning.  Below these announcements is a link.  Just below "Current Bulletin"  Or you can just click HERE. 


We have purchased and installed an Automatic Defibrillator machine.   Located inside the auditorium by the sound room door.  It is clearly marked.  It is fully automatic with easy picture instructions so that in a medical emergency we may be able to sustain someone until professional help arrives.  This device is extremely harmful (potentially) in the hands of a child.  It is mounted above childrens' reach, but they are resourceful... please watch your children or guests children.  We don't want anyone injured.  


Ongoing message until the status is changed:


Regarding the offering. (members only) 

It is suggested that you set aside your offering and have it ready for when we can meet again.   Or you can mail a check to the building if you prefer, drop it by the building if you happen to be by here (mailbox is on the East side by the door) when going to the store, etc.  

Call Tim Brown if you wish to electronically contribute directly.  He can give you the information.


We will be streaming Wednesday Evening but have no assembly at the building. (unless this is updated.)


Please continue to be in touch with each other and certainly pray for a swift end to this.   


What good can come out of this?  

We know that The Lord works in mysterious ways.  We can't often see what He intends accomplish by events.  

  • Please consider that many people are a bit frightened and concerned about their health.  (an opportunity to show a better way to live)
  • Couples and families are spending time together and having to bond.  Maybe even having a meal together and discussing things.
  • Globally, people are being asked to act in compassion and sacrifice their comfort for the good of others. (a Godly attribute)
  • The world has been asked to slow down and think about how they go about daily life.  

Shouldn't the keepers of true peace, love, and joy, be ready and anxious to take advantage of the situation and show them what we have? (That's us)





Door handles are a prime place for cross contamination and for bacteria and virus' to spread.  The most used door handle is in a public restroom.   

After washing your hands, use a towell to turn off the faucet, then the same towell to open the door.  There is a garbage can by the door to dispose of the towell.  

This is a good practice all the time, not just in an situation as we are in. 

Outside door handles can be worked with a sleeve, or a pencil, umbrella handle, etc.  We will attempt to keep doors open, or attended to avoid contact. 

Push the exit bar with your arm.  

If you go to the market, etc. keep two clean sets of nitril or latex gloves on hand.  Cash is dirty..... always..... The pin pads, and gas pump handles are also filthy.  A glove is a good investment.

What's Happening At The Facility?

If you see an area which needs custodial attention or repair, let David Miller or Tim Brown know.  Outside issues, see Curtis Stredic.  We are working very hard to keep the plant in good shape, however, we may miss something.  You will not hurt any feelings by mentioning it.  It may be something we can't fix just yet, or just haven't seen yet....  

We have yet more upgrades, repairs and changes to the Montgomery building.  (not in order of priority)

General Stuff:

Touch free faucets are done.   

*Clean foyer carpet and auditorium entry. 

*Repair and pressure wash the East side of the auditorium. (fix leaks) Miller    Pressure wash done>>>

*Finish repairs on the auditorium West side stucco which has leaky cracks. Miller

*Restore door handles. (brass plates and pulls)  

*Montgomery door delamination fix or replace.


Auditorium Lighting:

Replace all lights in the auditorium with LED bright fixtures.  This will brighten the atmosphere and make reading easier for most. The electrician had trouble making a meeting, so we are looking for another one.  The lights are being ordered so we'll have them on site ready for an electrician.  (bid from electrician pending)

See David Miller or Tim Brown for questions. 

Nursery and Training Room:

Paint the nursery and training room.  David Miller would like color suggestions for a neutral finish.  (wouldn't mind some elbow grease also)  Still need a color choice.....
