With COVID-19 back on the rise, social distancing measures, and restrictions on public facilities are once again being imposed. As these measures were first introduced in March, churches scrambled to move their services online. Most started conducting services on Facebook Live, some went to YouTube, and many gathered via Zoom.
It is not our intention to close the doors of the church building, however, we recognize the need to be able to connect as a church while keeping a safe distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, we will offer our teaching online, as many churches have done.
However, a church is not a church if it doesn’t “gather.” That is, if we do not come together and encourage and pray for one another. During this pandemic, “gathering” in person may be limited, however, in this age of technology, gathering can also be done virtually.
The easy answer is to use Facebook Live and Zoom. However, there must be some more ways we, as a church, can come together virtually and safely, and keep everyone connected and lifted up. We are seeking ideas. Feel free to post your comment below, or send us a message via the contact form below.
May God bless you, and keep you safe.
