Cooperating, Not Compromising

Based on the recommendations of our President, Governor, and local health department, we will not be holding events with groups larger than 10 people, at least through April 30, 2020.  See coronavirus.gov.


We do not see this decision as compromising our faith out of fear, whether toward a virus or our government.  Rather, we believe this is an expression of appropriate submission to our governing authorities, cooperation with our community, and concern for the most vulnerable among us (1 Peter 2:13-17, Isaiah 1:16-17).  In coming days, we may be called upon to serve our neighbors in less socially distanced ways, but for now, we will not gather in large groups.

Committed and Connected

At the same time, we are no less committed to worshiping God as a community, and we believe the good news of Jesus Christ speaks to our greatest need.  Our worship service will continue via video for the duration of this crisis.  Follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our YouTube channel.

 

Small groups or other similar ministry may continue at the discretion of the leaders and participants.  In fact, we encourage you to connect with one another one-to-one, phone, email, or text.  We have so many ways to connect!


We continue to support our local food pantry Loaves and Fish as well as other ways to serve our community at this time of need.

Care and Prayer

Do you need practical assistance during this crisis?  Email or call the church office, and we will see if we can mobilize someone from our congregation to help.

 

This is a great time to be praying for our governmental leaders, health care professionals, and most of all those infected and/or isolated.  Pray that our church would remain unified while we’re apart.  Ask for God to spare us in his mercy, and give grace for each new challenge.

 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  2 Corinthians 12:9
