I hope you’re finding ways to take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your neighbors as we all adapt to the quickly changing circumstances surrounding the pandemic. We’re hearing from the CDC and state leaders that it may be 8 weeks before we’re able to gather again in person, and we’ve asked table hosts to pause in-person table meetings for now, too. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other beautiful, urgent ways for us to be a church in this moment. Our team is brainstorming about how a Jesus community could live the way of grace and peace in the midst of COVID-19, and you’ll be hearing more from us in the days and weeks ahead. And if you haven’t found our podcast yet, just search for “South Bend City Church” on your favorite app or head to southbendcitychurch.podbean.com to listen to new episodes that we’ll be releasing throughout this unexpected season.
We were planning to communicate some important church family news unrelated to Coronavirus with you in our most recent gatherings, but since we weren’t able to meet, I wanted to find another way to share with you, so please take a few minutes to view the video above. If you have any questions or concerns about the news, please feel free to reach out to our executive pastor, Matt Graybill (firstname.lastname@example.org) or me (email@example.com).
Praying for all of you every day, with gratitude and love,
Lead Pastor // South Bend City Church
