Coronavirus Response

What we’re doing

During this time of uncertainty, we look to Christ.

The coronavirus and incidents of COVID-19 have ushered in unusual and uncertain days. Among other things, it offers the church the opportunity to lean in to being “the church beyond the walls.” We are following the path of wisdom and compassion by suspending all of our in-person meetings and providing online opportunities.

.

It’s with this understanding that we look for alternative ways to worship, fellowship and gather virtually. We are doing what we can to “flatten the curve.” Flattening the curve requires a “neighbor-first” mentality, precisely the kind of mentality that we try to cultivate as followers of Christ.

What does this mean?

It means we join together in worship through an online live streamed service. It’s really as simple as clicking a link. You can watch it live on Saturdays at 5:00 pm, or you can watch the recorded version on Sunday morning or anytime that’s convenient for you.

We are following the State of California directive to “shelter in place.” We are creating ways to be community in these unprecedented times. For example:

Our Deacons, Elders and staff are reaching out to our members and friends with phone calls to check on their welfare, and respond to their needs.

All meetings, including our weekly Bible Text Study, are being held online, and we have offered similar opportunities for all of the support groups that would customarily meet on our campus

We are reaching out to our children and youth to keep them engaged through online meetings and virtual projects.
