Hey Tomoka family,
We want to give a huge thanks to all of you for how you are responding during this time of adversity. Your faith in Jesus and passion for Him is very apparent, and your support for Tomoka and each other is shining through.
Moving services to 100% online is something Tomoka has never had to do before, and we weren’t entirely sure what to expect. We were truly encouraged by how much interaction there was on the livestreams from our website and on Facebook. Lots of you left positive messages, prayer requests and were actively engaged in worship.
If you missed the message, you can watch the replay online here.
We would also like to thank everyone for their generous giving. It is especially important during times like this, and you all delivered in a big way!
You can give online, safely and securely here.
We may not be able to meet in person right now, but there are still plenty of ways to stay connected thanks to the amazing technology available to us.
If you need to reach out feel free to contact your local campus’ front office, or message us on Facebook.
We love you, Tomoka family!

March 13, 2020 at 3:17 PM – Tomoka would like to thank everyone for their patience and flexibility. Your prayers and encouragement have been incredible. Tomoka’s leadership is closely monitoring the news of the coronavirus (COVID-19). After much prayer and consideration, all in-person services will move to an online platform until further notice. All on-campus activities and ministries, with the exception of the Food Pantries in Ormond and Palm Bay, are canceled through at least this Wednesday, March 18. This decision is entirely faith-based, and was motivated by how we can best love our neighbors by preventing the spread of the virus unnecessarily. We know God is in control of every situation, and we encourage all of you to put your trust in Him. Please continue to lift up prayers for our cities, our nation and the world.
Livestream services will take place at 6:30 PM Saturday, March 14 and 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 AM Sunday, March 15. We look forward to worshiping with you as Pastor Joe continues his sermon series, Let’s. Click here to watch online.
