Dear Canaan Family and Ministry Leaders, 

As a result of the coronavirus we are not able to worship in our building. We all know that the church is a body of believers that are called to live out the Gospel in their words and actions.  As a result we will have prayer meetings and worship via conference calls and Facebook live.  Monday through Friday a Prayer Line has been set up via conference call from 10:00 am – 10:30 am and 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm. Wednesdays at 7:00 pm we will have prayer meeting via conference call.  Sunday at 10:00 am we will have worship service via the conference call and Facebook live. The number to call in is 978-990-5000 access code is 734799. Although the building is closed the CHURCH is still open.

Please continue to check in on our seniors and those who are in need. Remember your commitment in supporting our church. Let us remain faithful to God’s command. You can use our Paypal donation box below or send your contributions to the church’s PO Box 679. Thank you,  be blessed and stay safe.


Sunday Services have been cancelled. We are worshiping at home through prayer. Please continue to contact the church or check the website for future updates. 

Father God we thank You for life and strength. As our nation and world is being shaken by this Cornonavirus pandemic we look to you for all our help. We decree and declare that the present situations and circumstances we are facing will not determine our future to be a discouraging end. Our hope is based on YOUR promise in Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with MY righteous hand.” Father God we ask for YOUR healing for those who have the virus, for those who have lost their lives because of it. Please grant their families comfort and peace. We pray that a cure is developed swiftly to contain the spreading of it. We pray for the medical profession as they endure to help those in need. We pray for those who have been and will be affected financially because of it. We thank and Praise YOU God that this too shall pass and that we will all be more untied as one with You. In Jesus Name!  Amen!!!
