Church Family and Guest,
First, we want to say thank you to all who tuned in to our live services, or have been able to watch them later. We, your church staff, have been blessed by your encouragement and prayers for us and your church over the last couple weeks. We also want to say that it's been wonderful to see how many of you are making the best out of a quite uncertain situation we find ourselves in. We've been hearing reports of how families have been utilizing the RightNow Media library, calling and checking in on one another, kids writing cards to our senior citizens, etc.
The truth is, we are just not sure when we can meet together again. We want to follow guidelines set forth by community, government, and healthcare leaders. We know that not meeting together is an effective way to slow down and possibly eliminate any chance of people further being infected by the coronavirus disease. Let us be clear, we don't see this as our church, or any church, being denied access to worship our loving God, but an opportunity, for the good of the whole, to keep us all as healthy as possible, so that we will be able to worship together soon in His house!
So until that day that we get to come together as the body of Christ, We want to encourage you to remain in Him! (John 15) Use this opportunity, parents, to encourage and uplift your children in the Lord (Deut. 6:7, Eph 6:4) in your homes. Lead them in prayer, reading the Bible and discussing God's Word. This year, our vision and focus is on the family unit, to encourage and strengthen it (Together). We never would have thought that God has set it up that you can do family worship on Sundays now in a unique way to build your relationship with one another and with God! We believe that God is doing a mighty work in our families and particularly in homes during this time. If that be the case, then He must be setting our church up for revival when we get to be together again! What a day that will be!
While you've been out, we've been working on a few things in house. Kelley has been doing a lot of deep cleaning throughout. We're working to make our worship experience better by improving our projection system and audio system. We've got to say, it's sounding a looking great! We plan to do some more touch up painting and a little work on our floors and hand sanitizing stations are going up throughout the campus, We're getting this place ready for you!
So, until we are able to return, please join us Wednesday Nights online at 6:30 and Sundays at 10am and 6pm as we gather scattered in His name, to lift His name on High, and to pray in His name, and to be encouraged by His Word! (Rom. 15:4)
-Your Ministerial Staff
