ALL in-person gatherings at the church, including Sunday morning services, remain suspended. However, we are still worshipping, being the church, and staying connected in many other ways! Here's a few answers to any questions you might have about church during the pandemic.
First, join us for live lobby fellowship at 9:45am every Sunday on our Facebook page!
Each Sunday morning you can join us for worship one of two ways:
Lots! Visit our events page for the online events and groups happening, including youth, young adults, life groups, and prayer.
We're also sending out weekly midweek devotional content/videos to encourage you and keep us connected, including content for kids like beolow! View all past ones and sign up for our e-newsletter here.
This is a time to lean into community, not away from it, and the best way we can do that right now is digitally.
Make sure you're subscribed to all our media channels listed here and on the buttons on the top of our page. We're very active on social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram so join us!
Absolutely! In fact, some might say we're working more than ever during this time! We're still avaialbe by email or phone (we're checking messages daily so call us at 250.248.5333) and as things open up we'll be available by appointment at our church offices. Find out how to contact us here.
We're making sure every person in the congregation has been called and checked in on, but if we've somehow missed you, let us know!
We're so overwhelmed by the support and generosity of our church so far! Thank you! We're still ministering to and meeting the needs of our community on a daily basis, while we also excercise proper caution in cutting back in areas that we can financially.
We are supported 100% by donations, so we continue to need your support!
All the ways to give (online, text, app, e-transfer) are listed here.
You can also mail in your tithe and giving or set up an appointment to come by the church and drop it off.
As we're a fairly large gathering, it could be a while. However, our team is already creatively brainstorming on ways we can start to gather in smaller groups and in safe ways for worship, and you'll hear more info soon.
We realize for some (especially those who are or live with someone at higher risk to the virus) it could be a year or more before they can safely return to any gatherings. Therefore, we will continue to make our services available online for the foreseeable future even if/when we're gathering in person on Sundays.
We're here for you! We are asking the Lord to draw us near to Him and use this as a way to draw the church closer together, making it stronger even as we are physically apart.
We love you, church!
