Some of you may have received an email earlier today from Sign Up Genius regarding the church picnic. Obviously that event has been cancelled, but I had failed to remove the sign up so it sent out an automatic email today. I've now taken that sign up down so you shouldn't be receiving any more emails.
Be the Church T-Shirts
Even though we're having to postpone the "Be the Church" Sunday that was planned for this coming Sunday, we had already ordered the t-shirts for that event. I want to get these out to as many people as possible since the message on the shirts is so appropriate as many of us are out being the church on a daily basis (while we stay safe, of course). I'll be scheduling a couple days next week when I'll be at the church to hand them out to those who would like to pick them up. Or I'd be happy to deliver them as I have time.
Live Streaming - Sunday 9:30 a.m.
Thanks for all of you who connected to our test on Wednesday night. We discovered a couple minor issues that we were able to fix thanks to your comments. In past emails, I've shared a number of ways to connect to the streaming, but the simplest is to connect to the streaming player right on the Home Page. It looks like this until the stream starts:
Now that we've hopefully worked out the bugs with getting our church online on Sunday mornings, we're going to be trying to help get some of our groups meeting again online. If you're part of a group that needs some help with that, or if you're interested in starting a new group, let me know. Our Men's Bible Study will be the first to go fully online next Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. If you're not already a part of that group and would like to join us, let me know. I'm also looking at some ways to share some daily videos that will help us all to be better equipped to feed ourselves and our families spiritually during this tim
The next big opportunity we're going to have as a church is to mobilize to really "be the church" and help meet needs in our community. As things continue to change rapidly, it's really hard to know exactly what that is going to look like, so we're going to have to be willing to be really flexible. I'm going to start doing that personally next week by volunteering with Mobile Meals and delivering food to those who can't leave their homes to get food. If you're aware of other opportunities like that let me know and I'll be happy to communicate that to our church family. And if you have needs of your own, we have people in our church family ready to help. You just need to let me know what you need.
