A worldwide virus outbreak does not mean the absense of Jesus! He remains King, and we are a people of hope who constantly look forward to the day when He will bring sorrow and sickness to an end and make all things new. And in the meantime, we aim to live our daily lives in a way that demonstrates that He is our Saviour. Through all of these Coronavirus fears, our staff, volunteers, and our communities have found creative ways to help our city and to continue our worship.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: ‘For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Romans 8:35-39


Even though the Coronavirus has kept us from meeting in person, we have had the incredible opportunity to live stream our worship services! Within a week, and with the help of Inspirmedia Productions, we were able to put our worship services online. Having the opportunity to worship together, even though we are not able to be in the same space, has given us a chance to reach even more people than before in different and new communities. 


Our Family Ministries team has been hard at work creating and publishing online content for all of our Sunday School and Wednesday night family participants. From Wednesday Night Live to High School Ministries, families and kids have been meeting online as we continue to help kids connect with Christ. For more information on our online programs, visit our Family Ministries pages.


In addition to our regular Family Ministries activities, our team has been organizing bedtime stories for kids! Volunteers and staff members have been reading kids books at 7:00pm on our Children's Ministry Facebook page. This has given our kids a chance to hear from those who care for them, hear a small message of hope and faith, and a prayer.


Through this pandemic, our Christ Stitchers and various volunteers have been busy sewing face masks to help control the spreading of Covid-19. These masks are being distributed to our doctors, nurses, and patients at Bryan Hospital. With free donations from JoAnn Fabric and Duncan Aviation, we have been able to help those who help others as we work together to slow the spread.
