Leadership Notes


For the past several years, people have been talking about and sharing concern about how we are so occupied with our computers, tablets, mobile devices and social media that we are losing personal touch. Ironic that now these technologies are helping us stay connected. God is Good all the Time!


Until further notice, all Sunday morning gatherings at Covenant Church have been cancelled. It is a blessing to know that Ben Nichols, Andy Stephens, and other talented tech people had been getting us ready to live-stream worship. So that work was already in process. And now it's here {more exact details will be available on our website before Sunday}:

Worship Live-Streamed Beginning Sunday, March 22 at 10:00 A.M.

This online worship experience will include prayers, sermon, and interactive elements. Pray for us as we enter new territory for our church!


I am especially encouraged by this observation from Andre Tan, pastor of The City Church in Singapore:

"It is especially tough as fear often has a way to masquerade itself as wisdom. How many precautionary measures are actually sound judgment and how many are too much, such that they teeter over into irrational fear and anxiety? It is a tough road to navigate, as we had to both convey safety to our members - by way of implementing recommended health measures - and yet not succumb to the cultural climate of fear, anxiety, and self-preservation. We do so in all our notices by ensuring that we are not just communicating measures but also casting a vision for how to be the people of God at this time."


As someone commented to me the other day, Covenant Church people are reasonable, rational, hardy people who love Jesus. You can't go wrong with that. I would add, Covenant Church people love each other, they love our community, and they are generous with all God's gifts. You have been called together and equipped by God for times like these.


All My Love,


Richard
