Worship with us and be encouraged during this time.


April 9th

In place of today’s blog entry from Pastor Ken, we instead want to ask for your prayers for him as he was admitted to the hospital over the weekend. He was experiencing abdominal pain and is undergoing tests and procedures for a diagnosis. He has not shown any symptoms of COVID-19 and that is not currently a cause of concern for his health.

Due to the ongoing restrictions at hospitals right now, no visitors are allowed to be with him in the hospital, not even family. Please pray for God’s healing on him, for his peace of mind, and physical comfort as he is in the hospital alone. Pray for doctors’ clarity of mind and for a quick diagnosis and effective treatment to get him home and recovering as soon as possible.

We’ll keep you posted.

Latest Service

4 Questions From Wednesday’s Service.


  1. How does acknowledging that we will die one day shape how we should live today?
  2. What is it about death that causes you to fear?
  3. How can we think about death in a way that leads us to rejoicing in Jesus?
  4. What other promises from God’s Word help us to not fear death? One example Pastor Edgar gave was Romans 8:38-39. What are some other examples?

Prayer is a powerful tool that God has given us to seek peace, wisdom, and courage in the face of fear and confusion.

At Idlewild we want to respond to this pandemic not with fear but by serving those in need. If you have a need please fill out the form and we will get in touch with you to find out how we can best serve you.

If you find yourself in a position to help those in need please sign up through our service form and find out how you can volunteer, donate, give and pray during this time.
