COVID19 Response: 3/17/20

COVID19 Update: 3/17/20

As the church, it is Biblical and important for us to gather together. However, the weekly gathering together is but a small part of what the church, the Body of Christ, is all about. It is this fact that gives us comfort and assurance that we can make difficult decisions in times like the present. In accordance with both federal restrictions and guidelines and to our state church guidance, we will move to all online church actives and at this time will NOT have any on-campus services, Connect Groups or other actives. With the blessings of technology, we will still be able to stay connected through the week and participate in corporate worship. We will continue our online weekend Sunday AM service. As well, most of our recently launched Connect Groups will have an online presence with Facebook groups with weekly live videos and ongoing discussions to stay connected and continue to learn, grow, and live our life together in faith. 

You will be able to stay updated and find a common connection on our website: of what and how we are handing all activities online with links and times of meetings. Of course, we will use Facebook as well, but sometimes posts and details can get lost in all the others. We will also be setting up a call-in option for those who do not have the internet or access at the time of services. We will also provide points of devotion online, a time of weekly prayer and other ways to help you Connect, Grow, and Serve during this time regardless of how long or short it lasts. 

Community Church’s very name is to serve our community and impact in a positive way. We are and will continue to reach out to our community. To our students who depend on us for CHOW bags each weekend, we will continue to help provide that to you as well as other food you may need. However, we need you to contact us so we can work to get you the food. WE have food bags packed and ready. We also have offered to pick up and deliver food and supplies from the market for you. Or we can pick you up to take you for the seniors hour at the Market or Dollar General from 6-7. Just call us or message us so we can arrange it. 

During this time, as the church services look different, please know that the ministry is carrying on. You can fulfill your tithing and giving commitment to the Lord in several ways. You can go online to, You can text any amount to 84321 and then follow instructions. You can download the app Church Center and put in our zip code of 35564 and select Community Church, then set up the giving. You can also mail it to PO Box 100 Hackleburg, AL 35564. In this time, we have an even greater opportunity to make an Impact in our Community, please continue to give in this most critical time. Thank you for partnering in the work of Jesus. 

This situation is something we have never seen and it is very fluid. We will continue to watch, listen, and make decisions and adjustments with what we know and understand at the time. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we seek to serve and care for all people during this time. We pray this situation is resolved quickly. Yet, regardless of how and what happens, Community Church and our pastoral team are committed to seeing the Body of Christ shine brighter than any other time in history. It is not time to take a spiritual vacation but to engage in what Jesus would be doing if He was here today. Help us be Jesus to our community and beyond. Jesus’ Mission has not changed, but we are faced with a different situation to find a way to do His Mission. Let us strive to be the Church of the Book of Acts in the world of 2020 for the Glory of God!

Thank you and God Bless you.
