3/19/20 COVID-19 Update: A Message from Pastor Mike


As Paul would start many of his letters, we are praying that the grace and peace of God have been tangible to you over the past several days. It has been unbelievable the stories of encouragement we have heard about how the body of Christ is loving one another during this season. Thank you for loving your neighbors fearlessly in the face of illness and uncertainty.

We wanted to provide a quick update and connect you to some resources that we can use to serve and stay connected while we exercise wisdom in our interactions and monitor updates from leading voices in our nation about COVID-19.

Digital Gatherings
As communities around the nation enact policies that are further limiting in-person gatherings, our previous recommendation to continue community groups can no longer stand. If we continue to ask the question about doing everything we can to shepherd the body safely, it is becoming increasingly clear that we cannot gather as we planned. As an alternative to our in-person gatherings, we will be creating digital gatherings allowing group members to see and hear one another. Your community group leader will be reaching out in the next few days to help you connect to your next digital gathering. If you are not currently in a community group, we will do our best to connect you. Contact us at  .

Upcoming Short-Term Trips
We will be postponing our upcoming short-term trips to Jackson, MS and the Middle East until a later date.

We also want to offer a few resources to provide aid for tangible needs during this season. Here are a few ways to receive help:

We are developing a rhythm for updates and encouragement, so please return to the Elder Updates page regularly for the latest information. Please also join us in prayer as we continue to seek the Lord's wisdom for how to care for the needs of our church.
