We are thinking about you and about all of our neighborhoods as we proactively respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19). We want to take every precaution to keep our church family healthy and safe, and are following the CDC guidelines.

How should we respond spiritually to COVID-19?
We want to take the impact of this pandemic on our world seriously. We want to be wise by implementing the recommendations of our local, state, and national health organizations. We know that we live in a fallen and broken world that is daily impacted by sickness and death, but we have hope because of Jesus. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and God raised Him from the dead. When we repent and believe in Jesus, we receive the gift of eternal life. It is our hope in eternal life that helps us deal with this world’s problems, issues, and concerns. We want to be busy during these days of uncertainty loving our neighbors and looking for opportunities to turn coronavirus conversations into gospel conversations.
Understand, right now in the midst of all the anxiety, fear and uncertainty... God wants us to remember at least 5 things.
That HE is still on His throne
The HE is in control
That HE can be trusted
That HE is our hope
That HE is great and HE is good
And brothers and sisters, since those 5 things are true, what should our response be...
We will not fear, we will trust
We will not worry, we will pray
We will consider this trail pure joy
We will be a light and live differently
We will show compassion
We will seize this moment for His Glory
We will pray for a national healing
We will fix our eyes on Jesus
