Latest Update from our Pastors at Newchurch
Dear Newchurch Family,
In an attempt to help the Church in a difficult time, C.S. Lewis once said, “Do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation.” The simple truth is that the Church has gone up against many different challenges. We now get to join in this history of overcoming the obstacles that lay before us. We will hold tight to the words of Hebrews 10 which encourage us to "not give up meeting together," even if those meetings are online rather than in person.
As concerns for public health and safety continue to grow during this season of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made some decisions concerning how we will proceed for the immediate future.
Our Sunday morning celebration times will be online only. In agreement with the suggestion of the CDC and the local government, we will only have essential staff & volunteers in the building during this time. You can join our Sunday celebrations in two ways: Click HERE for our Facebook page or HERE for our website.
In addition, we are postponing all of our regularly scheduled, on-campus, gatherings until further notice. This includes all small groups and age-graded gatherings (both Sunday and Wednesday) and any other meetings/events scheduled for our buildings.
Keep an eye on your inbox as we will be sending out suggestions on how to help make your in-home Sunday morning celebration times effective and encouraging over the unforeseen future.
As mentioned in our last notice, we are doing this not out of fear but out of an abundance of care and love for one another and our community at large.
“Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on, especially as we see the big Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:23–25 (Message)
We Love You…Pass It On!
