I hope this finds you well. Indeed, I am praying that it finds you with an uncommon sense of peace in the midst of the chaos.
Things continue to change. Indeed, things remain too unsettled for us to look out much more than a couple weeks. But I wanted to write to let you know of three ways we intend to stay connected.
- One: Online Services: We will be holding online worship services at 5:30 p.m. on Saturdays and all day Sundays starting at 9:00 a.m. for at least the next four weeks. They may continue well beyond that, but for now we can say that during the next four weeks we will be holding online services and we will NOT be holding live worship services.
- Two: A Daily Update: Beginning today we intend to send out a comprehensive daily email that will contain a wide array of things, such as: a two minute devotional video, a worship video recorded by a member of our worship team, announcements about upcoming matters, a list of prayer requests, links to resources for children and more. We hope to have it arrive around 3:00 p.m.each day. No promises, but that is the goal. (BTW, check your junk email box).
- Three: Phone Calls: I have asked the elders and ministry staff to join me in phoning everyone in our data base during the next two weeks. Some of you are doing well, but some of you are struggling, and we may not know this if we do not connect. We look forward to checking in, catching up and finding out how we can both help you and pray for you.
Let me apologize in advance for sending this email to everyone in our database, including those who did not sign up for emails or who may have opted out in the past. At this moment we are trying to check in with as many people as we can, and we have heard from many of you that were not receiving the updates we have been sending out. NOTE: If you have not been receiving these daily emails but want to continue to do so, you must click here.
That is it for now. I am going to continue to pray that you finding ways to leverage this trial for your growth and His glory.
