Saturday, March 21, 2020: Note from Pastor Matt
March 19, 2020
We will communicate on this page, through Facebook, our free mobile app , and all church emails. If you would like to be added to the email list contact us at email@example.com and we add you to the list.
Each Sunday morning at 10 am, we will offer a message and worship service on our church app, website and Facebook. We encourage ALL of you to join us as at that time. Even though we won’t be in the same building we can and will gather together as a body and worship together!
It is important that in our effort to save our physical bodies from harm we do not neglect the health of our spirit! So stay in love with Jesus!
March 18, 2020: COVID-19 Announcement
I pray this email finds you well! We are in a peculiar time in history. I want you to know this with absolute certainty: GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL! In accordance with Governor Reynolds’ State of Disaster Emergency Plan, mandating no group meetings of 10 or more, Life Church will not be meeting on the church campus until further notice. None of this is a surprise to God. This does NOT mean that there is no church . . . it actually means that the church is expanding!!! The building is not the church, YOU are the church, and God is forcing us to get outside the walls of the building and be the church inside of our homes and communities! Think how this could further the gospel and the reach of the Kingdom of God if we allow it to. We are excited to see how God will use our church during this un-precedented time. There are many scriptures that bring us hope in what seems like a failing and worsening world. Nicole and I believe whole heartedly that God is already using what the enemy meant for destruction for His good. Why wouldn’t He? Genesis 50:20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.
The Life Church leadership team has been meeting and praying about how to empower YOU to be the church and how to most effectively bring the hope and salvation message of Jesus to our hurting and scared world. The Church (You) needs to rise up for such a time is this. Satan would love to isolate each of us, and with these mandated new measures, it could be easy for our church to lose community. But we will not sit by and let that happen! We are implementing a strategic plan to bring our body closer together, rather than further apart. Over the next week we will be communicating that plan with you. Also, each Sunday morning at 10:00, we will offer a message and worship service on our church app, website and Facebook. We encourage ALL of you to join us as at that time. Even though we won’t be in the same building we can and will gather together as a body and worship together! Depending on the length of this crisis we will be offering more resources. It is important that in our effort to save our physical bodies from harm we do not neglect the health of our spirit! So stay in love with Jesus!
As with everything else, our financial obligations continue. I want to thank you in advance for your faithfulness in tithes and offerings; whether on-line, through the mail, in person or at our offices. Our offices will remain open during normal office hours, Tuesday-Friday 8:30am–4:30pm. We know that these can be difficult times for many, and we want to be here for you more than ever. If you have prayer requests, concerns or questions please post on our church app or call the office at 319-352-2038.
Pastor Matt & Nicole, and Life Church Board
