As we continue to navigate our nation’s ever-changing Coronavirus situation, let’s first love others and do our best to represent Christ, regardless of what’s happening in the world.
In order to follow our governing authorities and do our part to flatten the curve, we’re going to have ONE service at 10 a.m., live streamed on YouTube each Sunday for the next several weeks until further notice.
God is sovereign and means this time of “social distancing” for good. Our mission of glorifying God by making, growing and unleashing disciples of Christ does not change regardless of how we are doing services. Actually, this time forces us to analyze our definition of church. Church isn’t a building, a service, or an event. It’s the people of God living out the mission of Jesus together.
We want to focus on small groups more than ever before during this time. We may not be able to meet together corporately on Sunday mornings, but we can gather in homes in small groups of people and view the service, while also caring for each other and holding each other accountable.

In the meantime as we navigate through this pandemic, we kindly ask you to do the following:
- Love others. That means taking the simple but effective steps that public health officials continue to recommend:
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and hot water for 20 seconds (you can sing Jesus Loves Me to time it).
- Stay home if you are sick (with anything).
- Avoid contact with those who are sick.
- Cover your mouth with your elbow when you sneeze or cough.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth (just your face in general).
- Get a flu shot (to decrease the complicating effects of the flu).
- Think twice about your social media posts. There is just as much false information as true going around the internet regarding this virus, and a lot of it is designed to increase fear. Christians should be serious about the truth, including the accuracy of the things we share online.
- Remember the gospel, and pray. Our personal health and safety is nothing when compared to the eternal glory of belonging to Christ and the promise of his presence forever! Christians don’t need to fear what’s in this world, because resurrection and new creation in the presense of God is our hope. That frees us to love others and be a calming influence, even when the rest of the world is in panic mode. We’re called to be peacemakers!
