We wanted to bring you up to speed about a decision we had to make as a team this week. In light of COVID continuing to spread in clusters, we have taken into consideration the health and safety of all our church family and decided to discontinue church services onsite for approximately 6 weeks. After 6 weeks we will re-assess. We will continue to have church each Sunday live streamed online.
As a team we are encouraged as we sense that God is taking us into a season of fresh growth in new ways. The strategy He has shown us is to encourage everyone in our church family to LEAN IN and REACH OUT. This will help us to stay strong in faith and encourage one another that we are not alone.
Some ways we can LEAN IN are by watching church online, attending prayer meetings, finding a connect group, continuing to do the Church’s Daily Devotion Journal and gathering in small groups to fellowship.
Ways to REACH OUT are emailing or texting one another words of encouragement, making a phone call, inviting others over to hang out, heading outdoors together, making or sharing a meal with church family, watching church online together or starting a connect.
As we lean in and reach out we know our relationship to God and to one another will grow stronger and closer. We look forward to seeing the fruit of what God will do in our midst through this unusual season. It is not wasted time. We encourage you to regularly check your email, our church website and social media where we will keep you up to date.
We look forward to seeing you online this Sunday at 10:30am. https://shlhbr.cc/youtube.
We stand together and look to God, our creator, Saviour and sustainer, to guide us forward with his mercy and grace.
