Dear Church Family,

 

The church staff is continuing to pray through, discuss, and evaluate our plan of action in regard to COVID-19. Please know that our priority is to respond in the most faithful way. As a church body, our commitments must be to honor God in all things, be faithful in prayer and stewardship, and to share the love of Christ with those around us.

 

To protect as many people as possible from illness and to cooperate with recent guidelines established by local, state, and national authorities, we will continue to suspend all on-campus activities and corporate gatherings through Friday, April 24. Even during this season of physical separation, we are committed to keeping our church family connected. On Sundays, we will continue to livestream our 10:30AM service on Facebook and YouTube. Additionally, each ministry will begin to host video conference calls via Zoom. This is geared toward connecting our Sunday School classes, our children and youth groups, and our music ministry. Through these digital resources, we can remain faithful in worshiping the Lord together, maintain discipleship, and continue to build Christian fellowship with one another.

 

As we face great challenges due to COVID-19, we can find comfort in knowing that this virus is not a challenge for God. While this is a time of great uncertainty for us all, God remains faithful and true. May we continue to walk in faith “for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7



Our plan of action:

  • Suspending all on-campus activities and congregational gatherings through April 24
  • Livestreaming our 10:30AM service on Facebook and YouTube
  • Using Zoom video conferencing to maintain discipleship and build Christian fellowship
  • Posting updates each Wednesday and Friday on Facebook and on our website

Dear Church Family,

 

In recent days, we have seen unprecedented measures taken against the spread of COVID-19. As the staff continues to evaluate the ever-changing situation, our priority is to respond in the most faithful way. As a church body, our commitments must be to honor God in all things, be faithful in prayer and stewardship, and to share the love of Christ with those around us.

 

After prayerful consideration, discussion, and evaluation of the global pandemic, we have made the decision to suspend all on-campus activities and corporate gatherings through March 31. We will continue to assess the conditions and adjust our plan of action accordingly. To not neglect the biblical mandate to meet together, our 10:30AM service will be available exclusively online via livestream. As believers, when we are unable to worship together in a corporate setting, it can leave us feeling incomplete. While we may not be together in the same room, we can be confident in that our worship of the Living God is not contained to one building or location. Through livestream and digital resources, we can still worship the Lord together each Sunday.



Our current plan of action:

  • Suspending all on-campus activities and congregational gatherings through March 31
  • Livestreaming our 10:30AM service on Facebook and YouTube
  • Posting updates each Friday on Facebook and on our website
  • Deep cleaning / sanitizing each building on campus

In these times of great uncertainty, when most of our activities in life and at church have been disrupted, what are we to do? Isaiah encourages us to “Seek the LORD while He may be found.” This could be a time to let fear dictate our actions, but it could also be a time for a great spiritual awakening. Not only during this crisis, but in all our days, may we commit to being ambassadors for Christ. Let us take the time we have been given to intentionally love and care for each other. Now is the time to step up – not step back. How can we do this? We can pray for one another, call one another, and help those who are in need. May we serve with His hands and see with His eyes, so that our community, nation, and world will know Christ by our love.

 

 

In Christ,
