COVID-19 Response Update
SPREADING HOPE IN ANXIOUS TIMES
As of March 18, 2020
To honor the latest direction from government and health officials to restrict public gathers, we will not gather together corporately for Sunday services for the next several Sundays. We will also temporarily suspend all ministry events and groups during the week, regardless of size. Although our church offices are now closed and our staff are all working from home, we still encourage you to reach out to our pastors and staff with your needs.
Watch Sunday services live-streamed at 10 AM instead of our regular 9 AM and 10:45 AM service times. Our desire is to have our entire church family worship together from each of our home or mobile “sanctuaries” as a way to gather together in spirit and fully rely on God, as He stirs our hearts to love and good works and to encourage one another—our friends, our families, our neighborhood— through Him.
Every need in the world is an OPEN DOOR to share God's love. That's why, as a church family, we're responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by serving the people who are most vulnerable.
No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, fear doesn't have the final say. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” Our hope is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, so we've been called to share that love with the world. And that's exactly what we'll be doing in the coming weeks and months as more and more people in our community are in need.
In a crisis like this, it's common for misinformation to spread, and it can be difficult to figure out who and what to trust. Here are some reliable resources that can connect you with accurate and helpful info:
