Livestream Only This Sunday
I pray you are safe and making the most of these challenging days.
Our elders met yesterday and were faced with some incredibly difficult decisions. We hope you will continue praying for us as we seek to keep our church unified and cared for.
Based on our desire to honor God and love our neighbors, we continue to be in complete agreement that we need to follow the recommendations of the authorities and experts. The current CDC recommendation is that all gatherings of 50 or more be cancelled. The president is even recommending no gatherings of 10 or more.
So, we will not be meeting together on Sunday mornings for the next few weeks (at least through the end of March).
However, as many other churches are doing, we will continue to have our regular service and livestream it (on our website, Facebook, or YouTube). We need to continue to gather around God’s Word. And even if we can’t be physically together, we thank God for technology that allows us to still “meet.”
Remember: this is only a season. We hate this. But it will pass. And Jesus will be good on the other side of whatever happens.
And we pray that this disruptive moment in our lives would be used to remind us to number our days and would give us a sweet longing for our fellowship and corporate worship to return.
So, just to be very clear: There will be no gatherings at the church building through the end of March. We will be re-evaluating as more information comes in. Please join us on the livestream and make extra effort to stay connected to the church family. Call and Facetime one another. Text and email. Let’s utilize these common graces to care for one another.
Pastor Justin (on behalf of the elders)
