During this uncertain season we want to help people live in the Spirit of power and love and of a sound mind. We want to do everything that we can to help people who may drift into living in a spirit of fear. In Proverbs 22:3 Solomon (the wisest person in history) said, "A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences." Because we want to take precautions AND help as many people as we possibly can, below you will find our current response to what is happening as well as some resources that will bring hope, encouragement and connection.
For the foreseeable future our Sunday services, cYouth Group, Celebrate Recovery, traditional Life Groups and any other gatherings are postponed.
Don't stop reading though, we have some great things in place instead!

It's time to get connected.

During this season we are all going to have times where we need encouragement and times we can bring encouragement. We will have times where we need prayer AND times we can pray. We may have times we have needs AND we may have times we can meet needs. Our God can move mountains, but we need to understand that he usually moves mountains through His people. The best way to see God move mountains during this season is to join an Online Life Group today. You may need a mountain moved AND you may be God's plan to move a mountain. Join a group today and be part of mountains being moved.

Do You Have A Need Right Now?

We'd love to hear from you and try to help with any needs that we can


The best way to find help and hope...

You guessed it! Joining an Online Life Group. While we don't love those in a group more than we love you, we know those in a group more than we know those outside of our groups. Don't go through this alone, join a Online Life Group today!

A Few Thoughts That May Help...

REPLACE PANIC WITH PRAYER AND FAITH OVER FEAR.

Philippians 4:6-7 implores us "do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

During these uncertain times what we are all realizing is that the rock we thought we were standing on, was really just sinking sand. During this season we need to return with great prayer to The Rock.
 
If there is no peace in your life it might be because you are presenting your fear filled request to social media, and not to God.

If you listen to the right voices you will make the right choices. Maybe put down social media and the news and pick up the Scriptures a little more!
 


SHARE HOPE, NOT FEAR. 

The world is looking for hope, so share the hope you have found in Jesus.

1 Peter 3:15 tells us "always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; but do it with gentleness and respect"

The reason so many are afraid is because they don't have the hope that Jesus provides. Now, more than ever, we can live this out AND then share it with the world around us. A world that has always been in great need of the hope Jesus brings.


FAITH BRINGS PEACE. FEAR BRINGS PANIC.

There is a great promise for us in James 4:8, "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you."
 
God is one step away! You lose your fear when you know God is near.
When we forget that God is near, we begin to fear. Draw near to God today, and he will draw near to you.
 

6 Week Study For You

What do you do when there's no way forward and there's no way out? In this study, our Online Life Groups will discuss this, have a great time of prayer, and will extend hope.

We will get through this, but it'll be a lot easier together.

Let Praise Build Your Faith

We have a list of suggested songs just for you and this season (thanks Hannah for putting this together)

Can You Meet A Need Right Now?

We'd love to hear from you and get a list of possible resources we can provide


Finally, 

We hope this page helps you, your friends, and your family. I want to make one final plea to consider a group today. Our Online Life Groups will help you find hope, help, prayer, encouragement, and connection during this tough season. Our Life Group leaders are rallying together to provide all of the care, growth, and prayer, that you'd find in our traditional Life Groups while leveraging technology to adapt and respond to our need for physical separation. We’ve been testing out this new format and have already received positive and encouraging response.

We hope this opportunity is a huge blessing to you, and that it comes at a time that we all need hope, help, prayer, encouragement and connection.

There is a little more space than when we met in living rooms, but space is still limited (or we wouldn't be able to care or connect with everyone).

With great love and concern for you, your family and our community,
Pastor Michael
