We will reopen the church for in-house worship on Sunday, May 17, 2020 for our 11 AM service only. We have put into place several measures to keep you and your family safe for when you join us, including spacing seats in the sanctuary to abide by the social distancing guidelines of six feet and providing sanitation stations throughout the facility. We've also removed 100s of seats from the sanctuary altogether to help keep the distance.
Your health and safety remain our top priorities. While we are eager to reopen the church, we are doing so cautiously to keep you safe. As we take a day-by-day approach to how we move forward, we may have to make more adjustments to how the church operates. We will keep you updated with the latest information as it becomes available.
Until we meet in person, here are a few ways we're going to stay connected with you:
We're very excited to be moving forward with reopening the church and we can't wait to see you and your family! As new information becomes available, we'll update this page to keep you informed.

With the current shelter in place order for the state of Georgia, it is obvious that we will not be gathering at our physical building for services this month. We do have several ways to stay connected with you, our church family, during this unprecedented time.
Please remember that we are still available to help those in need. If you or anyone you know is in need of food, errands, or anything else, please reach out to us so we can help.
Your tithes and offerings are greatly appreciated during this time. Please continue to be faithful in your giving. We've sent out self-addressed envelopes so you can give your offering by mailing it to us. We've also set up a new, secured mailbox directly at the church office, so you can bring your offering and place it in there without having to mail it or worry about postage. As always, our online giving option is the fastest, easiest, and most secure way to give your offering. Go here to give online.
We love you and we are continuously praying for you, your family, our nation, and our world. Stay encouraged and full of faith — we will get through this and come out better on the other side.

We are keeping up with the latest developments of the coronavirus disease. Since the beginning, your health and safety have been our top priorities and they will continue to be so. Until further notice, all classes, groups, and services will continue to be canceled.
Here are a few ways we're planning to stay connected with you during this difficult time:
The City of Carrollton has issued a Shelter in Place order. We are aware of this and will abide by it, but our church will still be available to help anyone in need. If you or anyone you know is in need of food, errands, etc., please reach out to us so we can be of assistance.
We love you. We're praying for you. Stay encouraged and full of faith — we will get through this.

As news about the coronavirus pandemic rapidly changes, the health and safety of you and your family remain our top priorities. Along with other businesses, churches, and organizations in our area, we want to do everything we can to help prevent the spread of this disease. Based on the guidance and recommendations from government leaders and medical professionals, we have decided to cancel all services for Wednesday, March 18 and Sunday, March 22.
If we have to cancel more services after this week, we'll keep you updated on the homepage of our website and on our Facebook page. If you've signed up to receive text messages from us, you'll get a message about those cancellations as well. If you'd like to sign up, go here and enter your phone number.
We are praying for you and yours during this time.

The church continues to monitor the developments of the coronavirus disease. Based on information and guidance from government leaders and those in the medical profession, Pastor Guyton announced that we will take a day-by-day approach in regards to how services will be held at Mount Holly Church. We will not arbitrarily make these decisions — as new information is released about the disease, if we don't feel it's appropriate to meet at the church, we won't. If we have to call off any particular services, we will. This is our plan on how the church will operate for at least the next week.
As the church remains open, we will continue to take preventative measures to help reduce the risk of exposure. A sanitation station will be set up in the lobby of the church, we will not engage in the regular ways we welcome you (including handshaking, hugging, meet and greet during service, etc.), and we will rigorously clean and sanitize all areas of the facility. As a general practice, we suggest engaging in social distancing by keeping a few seats between you and other visitors and members.
We will keep the homepage of our website and our Facebook page updated with any service cancellations. If you've signed up to receive text messages from us, you'll get a message about those cancellations as well. If you'd like to sign up, go here and enter your phone number.
