Hi Church Family!
The building may be closed but the church is alive and well. Isn’t it interesting to notice the ways that God is at work through this unique moment in our culture? We are among churches throughout our nation who are doing church differently. It’s in moments like these that God works for good in ways that are beyond what we can imagine.
Our service on Sunday had our strongest engagement ever for an online service with more than 1,300 views as of today. The video message I posted last week has had more than 4,600 views. We have growing numbers of people following our page and engaging with us – both here in our community and beyond. All of this tells us what we already know… when we experience moments of disruption in our world, our hearts are more open to notice God.
Let’s keep our eyes wide open! Just as we are seeking to notice God more, let’s help others notice him too. Keep sharing our posts. Keep inviting people to join us online. I’m eager to see what God will keep doing in the days ahead.
Thank you for your faithful giving in the midst of this time of adjustment. Your giving fuels the ongoing mission and ministry of the church. We have recently moved to a new online giving platform and it’s easy to use. All the details are at almacog.org/give. You can also text to give by texting the dollar amount to 84321.
I’m especially grateful for the awesome leadership teams of our church. We are working closely together to adjust plans as needed. Here are a few updates we would like to share with you:
How can you help? I’m glad you asked.
Keep noticing God more in the days ahead. We will keep publishing our Noticing God Weekly Guide – a fresh version each week – as a resource for you. You can get a copy at almacog.org/notice. Take time to write down every day how you notice God.
I’m on standby to support you however I can. I’d love to hear from you. Call or write anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org or 989-463-3730.
I love you!
