Coronavirus and YOU
It is crucial that the church stay connected through this time of not meeting together. Let's engage the people in our small groups via email or phone throughout the next few weeks in order to remain connected and support one another through this time.
"Church" is the people
We want to reinforce the truth that the “Church” is the people, not the structure. Wherever you are, you are called to be the church. Be constant in prayer! Be looking for ways to lead your loved ones into a closer relationship with Jesus. Take advantage of the extra time to grow in your own walk with Christ.
We want to emphasize the strategic nature of this opportunity to be the “hands” and “feet” of Christ in your community. There has perhaps been no better time to show your faith in God and love for others than there is now. Look for ways to serve your neighbors. Be diligent in your efforts to B.L.E.S.S. the world around you!
Begin to pray for 4-5 people in your circle
Listen to their story
Eat with them
Share your faith story with them
We want to help you remain connected to one another through our live-stream ministry. Each Sunday morning we will continue to stream our service from 11:00 to 12:00. We will also upload the message by Monday for those who missed the live-stream. Our prayer is that God will use his word to settle and strengthen our hearts through this time.
We will undoubtedly spend more time at home during this season. We are working to compile a list of resources to help families be creative with the use of your time. Our prayer is that we as a church body would use our extra time together strategically for the purpose of spiritual renewal and restoration that leads to greater dependence on the Lord through prayer, generosity that flows from the abundance of God's faithfulness to us, and opportunities to declare the Gospel in the midst of uncertain times.
Coronavirus and Christ
In Coronavirus and Christ, John Piper invites readers around the world to stand on the solid Rock, who is Jesus Christ, in whom our souls can be sustained by the sovereign God who ordains, governs, and reigns over all things to accomplish his wise and good purposes for those who trust in him. Piper offers six biblical answers to the question, What is God doing through the coronavirus?—reminding us that God is at work in this moment in history.
