As you’ve heard, our city’s shelter in place order has been extended to April 20, 2020.
But please hear this, too: church is not canceled.
It just looks different.
Honestly, this isn’t the 2020 we had in mind. Navigating what church looks like during a pandemic has been a challenge, but we find hope in seeking our faithful God and knowing that nothing can cancel the Church.
Our community, all of the people of God around the world included, is not canceled. We’ll just worship differently from where we are until we can be back together again. And we will be back together again.I know you’re facing disappointment, grief, and other difficulties in this season too, but we’re all in this together and we’re here for you.
We’ll keep updating this page with the latest news about how our church is “meeting” and serving during this time.
What we won’t do:
Meet in-person. All of our in-person events, groups, and other gatherings are on pause as we practice loving our neighbor through staying at home as much as possible.
Panic. God is still on the throne and in control. As hard as it is to rest right now, we can choose to remember this and rest in Him.
Waste this season. All of us have a huge opportunity to connect with people online and serve our community right now. Let’s leverage this.
What we will do:
Stay connected. Isolation isn’t good for anyone and we’re making sure that having to be physically distanced doesn’t mean we’re completely disconnected. Check out our online service details and virtual small group information.
Love our neighbors. There are needs inside and outside of our church that we can work together to help meet. Even if you’re not in a position to donate financially, a kind word through the phone, volunteering in local relief efforts, or spreading a hope-filled message on social media can really help.
Remember our Hope. Our shared faith in Jesus Christ is what brought us together and will help us stick together. We should lean on and remind each other of God’s promises when we’re feeling weary.
Our church leadership is praying continuously and trusting God. We encourage you to do the same. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
