Church Online

Pineridge church,

As we take new steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 we are thinking about those with compromised immune systems who will be able to receive care from a health system that isn’t overwhelmed. Think in those terms as the church moves to recommend new measures of social distancing as follows:

1. Church services will be done online. A bare-bones crew (mainly my family) will lead the worship time, preach and facilitate post sermon dialogue through social media (see instructions below).
2. Bible Studies, Berean groups, teen and young adult studies will be done through social media. (see instructions below).

3. If you must connect personally with someone outside of your family, we recommend you do this outside, keeping a good distance from each other.

None of us have ever experienced anything like this before. Some of you have lost their jobs, others are in limbo. All of us are learning to live with uncertainty. But the God we serve is still in control as ‘No purpose of His can be thwarted (Job 42:2)’. Therefore we can rest in Him even in these uncertain times:
“though the olive crops fail and the fields live empty and barren though the flocks die in the fields and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The sovereign Lord is my strength” (Habakkuk 3:17,18).
