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: http://OurCC.org 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 OurCC.org/Giving, 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.

Pastor Joshua Lynn and Staff

COVID19 Response: 3/14/20

COVID19 Response: 3/14/20

We want to address the developing issue of the COVID-19 virus and its effect on us to let you know we are doing everything we can to be safe and wise. First and foremost, the cornerstone of our faith continues to be our total reliance on the Lord and His Promises. To our congregation who attend in person in Hackleburg, to our internet followers who watch and actively participate online, and to our community in Hackleburg to whom we serve, we give you this scripture to firmly stand upon in any time of trial or uncertainty:

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.” Psalm 46:1-3

We stand fearless in the face of what is before us, with God on our side. We also want to use WISDOM during this time. We have plans to continue our services as planned so that we can seek God in prayer, worship together, and be encouraged by God’s Word. We will also participate in a time of prayer to join our nation in the President’s call to a Day of Prayer. We want you to know we do not take your health and well-being light and have implemented the following to further protect you and your family:

  • Common areas, doorknobs, and touch surfaces have been disinfected before and after service.
  • The main bathrooms have sanitation stations at the door.
  • Sanitation at the children’s check-in will be available.
  • We are seeking extra sanitizers to be available in all children’s areas and in the lobby area.

If you are sick, we ask that you use your judgment in protecting the elderly, and medically vulnerable by participating in our services online at www.ourcc.org/live. As well, please let us know so we can pray for you in your time of need.

We encourage everyone to take this opportunity to show the love of Christ to your neighbor and those around you. While you may not have anyone in your family that is affected, there may be those who do become sick. Our church will continue to strive to be like a beacon of light in our community. We pray that this event passes quickly, with minimum disruption, but should disruption arise, we want to be ready for what is ahead, and poised to continue to minister the Word of the Lord and make a positive Impact for Christ in all ways possible.

As the situation evolves, we will continue to update you on any changes in terms of your Community Church family. If you have a need or know of a need please let us know.

Joshua K. Lynn

Lead Pastor

We are excited for each woman to pursue and fully take on the image of God and His presence. The world marks women with many labels that the daughters of God were never designed to wear, but Christ wants us to live permanently marked by the presence of the Holy Spirit.  

Together, we will draw strength, form and renew friendships and worship freely for a day that we believe will mark us in His image throughout eternity.
