The dynamic of COVID-19 continues to play out in real time in our cities and communities. I know that many churches like ours are grappling with how to respond: from looking for places to minister to our hurting communities and even more specifically choosing whether or not to continue to gather on a weekend service.
As a network we want to continue to help provide insight, tools, and resources to help each one of our churches and ministries navigate this moment well.

While this is a fluid situation, God was not taken by surprise. He is among His people in a very special way. Let us pray to our Good Father, believe in the Word of God, deeply love our church, and be light to a darkened world needing answers. Divine protection is our inheritance and His name is a refuge for His children to run into.
Spera in Deo,
