Update Friday, March 20th:
UPDATE ON CHURCH GATHERINGS: We hope everyone is hanging in there. All church gatherings are still canceled, and will be until further notice. We are following the government's direction to limit gatherings to 10 or fewer people, and ask that you do the same.
We will be live-streaming an update with a brief message and encouragement this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on our Facebook page, YouTube channel (click the red 'subscribe' button), and our Sermons page.
This will be our plan for the next few weeks, unless something dramatically changes with the coronavirus. We will post a worship guide by Sunday morning, along with some other resources to help during this time. We will let you know as soon as we plan on resuming gatherings.
We know this is an uncomfortable time, but we're praying for abiding peace and joy even as we wait. Use the restless moments, and the moments of irritation, and the moments of worry as doorways to draw near to God. He cares for us. This is not a disruption in the work of God. Continue to trust him, even when you feel restless.
With much love in Christ, Phil and Josh

UPDATE Saturday, March 14th:
After consulting with the elders and taking into consideration both the president’s and governor’s suggestions in regards to our current state of emergency, we are not going to have services this Sunday. While we were hesitant to cancel services, we came to realize that the safety of our members and our love for our friends and neighbors needed to be taken very seriously. This is a practical way for us to demonstrate such love at this time. Instead, we as pastors will be addressing the church with a challenge from God’s word and logistical updates for the next few weeks. As for the rest of this week, all regularly scheduled events and Bible studies that meet at the church will be cancelled.
Please tune in to the livestream for this address Sunday morning at 10 AM through the church Facebook page. The sermon will also be on the church app under Sermons, or the website immediatly after broadcasting.
Posted Friday, March 13th:
In response to the current state of things regarding the coronavirus, we want to respond biblically and wisely as a church and as the people of God.
We want to respond in line with our five convictions:
We are currently planning on meeting as usual this Sunday, March 15. Should the governor advise these kinds of gatherings be canceled, we will follow suit and cancel our services this week, making the sermon available online. We will keep you posted if and when other events and regular programs are canceled.
Whatever you do, do it to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). If you decide to gather, gather in faith and to the glory of God and for the good of those who gather with you. If you need to stay home, stay home to the glory of God. Guard against fear because our God is still enthroned and he delights to use His Church to manifest his glory, especially in times where all other hopes are waning.
