Waiting on God in a Crisis

Sunday :: Worship / Fellowship

Sunday, May 3rd

It’s often hard to see what God is doing. Where are you, God? What are you doing? Why can’t we see you working? Are you there? Why aren’t you doing something? Our questions often are met with silence. So naturally, we want to design our own plan. We want to get things going in the right direction. Why wait on God, when there are things to be done?

Key Verse

He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.

Hebrews 11:26

Upcoming Worship Services

We are planning our first corporate service on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10th. In the meantime, we are getting the facility ready. This includes disinfecting surfaces, increasing distance between rows and aisles, and preparing the building in other ways.

We will also continue to livestream our services. If you are uncomfortable, or in a high-risk group please feel free to continue to worship with us online. Also, worship with us online if you have recently been sick in any way.

One might ask why we are waiting a few Sundays before taking advantage of worshipping together. Our size of congregation and getting our space ready are a big part of the delay. We are doing everything possible on our end to make returning to corporate worship safe and exciting.
