Special Updates

Update – March 25, 2020
Much has changed in a couple weeks! We just want to offer a quick update on services and let you know about some new engagements we are starting.
Online Services
We will continue to offer Sunday Worship and Celebrate Recovery online only for a season. We are hopeful that we can get back to normal soon. However, no one knows when that will be. In the meantime, continue to connect with us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM and Friday evenings (Celebrate Recovery) at 7 PM. We will continue to stream to Facebook and to our website. This week we are adding YouTube as we know that will work better on some televisions.
We are adding a few additional mid-week connecting points!
Mid-Week Worship
Each Wednesday evening at 7 PM be sure to tune in for a live worship and prayer time. Tonight Rebekah and DeAnn will lead this special service.
Encouraging Words
Each Tuesday and Thursday morning, Pastor Tony and Pastor Cody will share a short word of encouragement from Scripture. These will be available on social media and our website.
If you have any suggestions, concerns, comments, or questions, please reach out to us! We will continue to answer calls, respond to emails, and serve as best as we can.
Update – March 23, 2020
Like all of you, everything we are used to is disrupted by the current health crisis.  Our intention is to follow the guidelines established by the health professionals and local, state, and federal government.  As such, all of our normal activities are postponed.  Sunday worship and Celebrate Recovery will be online only.  Youth group, children’s ministry, and life groups are also suspended.
If there is something you need, please call or email without hesitation.  Even though office hours are different that normal, our staff is available as always. 
Though we might not be able to meet in person, the strength of God’s church is not impacted.  The power of God is far greater any virus, policy, or crisis.  
Be sure to follow us on social media and subscribe to our email list (use the form on this page).  We look forward to seeing you soon!
Update – March 17, 2020
This is an unprecedented time. And unusual times call for unusual measures. Due to the current health crisis, all Sunday services and Celebrate Recovery will be online only for the next two weeks. Please plan to join us for a livestream service on Sunday morning at 10:30 AM and Celebrate Recovery on Friday at 7 PM. We will share the livestream on our website and on Facebook.
While this is radically different from what we are used to, we want to encourage you and your family to make the best of it. As you watch the livestream, sing out loud! Open the windows and make sure your neighbors can hear you! Open your Bibles and follow along. Parents, download the resources (available soon!) to do your own Children’s Church. While we are separated physically, nothing can separate us from God’s love!
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.”
— Romans 8:38 NLT
To be clear, this decision is not a reaction based on fear. This is a necessary and wise step to help minimize the threat of this virus. It is an action of care. We reached this decision on the counsel of our local health professionals and at the recommendation of our government leaders. The sooner we all do our part, the sooner our lives can return to normal. Never before have we faced something like this and never before have we been better equipped for such a time.
Our intention is to return to normal just as quickly as we can, though no one knows when that will be. It seems that reports are changing by the hour. We will continue to send out updates via email, text, and social media. Thank you for your understanding!
Update – March 12, 2020
In response to the locally confirmed case of COVID-19, we want to assure you that we are aware of the situation and that we are taking steps to help minimize the risk of further infections. We’ve been in contact with health professionals from the beginning of this crisis. There is no reason to live in fear or to panic. However, we will take reasonable steps to help prevent additional infections. This is a serious sickness that spreads easily from person to person. While most people will be fine, we would be foolish to not take actions that help protect those among us that may be most vulnerable.
Here are some of the actions we will take immediately.
  • Additional cleaning measures – more frequent cleaning of high contact surfaces
  • Modify greeting time – less shaking hands and more air high fives! (Seriously though, we need to minimize hand-to-hand contact.)
  • Modify communion – we will use alternative methods that reduce the chance of exposure.
  • If sick, please stay home! We would prefer to worship with you in person, but for the sake of the larger community and the more vulnerable please stay home if you are sick. Watch online through our website or Facebook.
At this time we do not anticipate these concerns having a major impact on any of our services, small groups, or overall ministry. We will continue to communicate with our local health professionals and adapt to the circumstances as necessary to help keep everyone safe.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
