Starting Sunday, August 16, we will have fellowship before worship from 9:30-10:00am!
It’s been great to see the ways that everyone is working together to weather this crazy season in our lives together!
In March and April, we found ourselves in emergency mode trying to figure out how to do anything at all during this pandemic. In June and July, we settled into a routine and began to hone in the programs we set up in the spring. Now, we are assessing how to move forward and continue to engage everyone in some new ways. There are a few gaps we know we need to fill. Some people still don’t have internet access and/or the equipment needed to access online events and services. We’ve had lots of prayer, worship, and learning opportunities, but not much fellowship time. Finally, much of what we have been doing is mid-week rather on Sunday, when many of us are used to doing more at church on Sunday, and less throughout the week. Here are the ways we are currently working to fill those gaps:
Thanks for all your patience and creativity during these crazy times! I love and appreciate each and every one of you. Remember that you are always welcome to reach out to me any time via email, phone call, or text.
In order to continue reaching as many people as possible as safely as possible, we now have a way for our members without internet access to call in with any telephone to listen to the latest worship service any time from Sunday - Friday. If you know of someone in the congregation who doesn't have internet access who could benefit from this service, please ask them to contact Pastor Charissa or the church office for the details, including the phone number they should use to call in to. Because there is a small cost associated with this service that is based on the number of users, we are asking that those who do have internet access continue to access worship through YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram. If you have internet access but are having trouble accessing the service, please connect with us to schedule a tutorial through our new technology access program.
Just call, email, or text us for details on where to send your videos and photos! If you need help recording yourself, let us know and we'll set up a time to socially-distant record you.
