Pastor Gordon’s Statement
Most of you who are familiar with scripture and the amazing story of the beginning of the Church, know that thousands of believers became tens of thousands in a very short time, long before the Church had a building of any kind. Believers were meeting in homes all over Jerusalem and beyond declaring their belief in Jesus the risen savior.
We are faced with an amazing opportunity because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) which is forcing us all over the nation to cancel public events of any size. We are following the lead of our Foursquare leadership in closing our public services for 4 weeks. During this time we will believe for unique opportunities to be the Church in all kinds of settings, primarily our homes. We hope you will take this opportunity to form small home group meetings, new journal groups, and other Spirit lead locations to express and practice your worship and faith in Jesus and each other. Let’s believe that we can see Jesus bring others into the Kingdom during this season. We know that most people are not “saved” in public services, but as a result of friendships and small group encounters with believers who are living their faith. We are going to live stream a shortened version of Sunday service online, and that should be available soon. We will keep you posted online and by telephone for those who are not online, of our journey through this time.
We have never believed the “Church” is the building. The Church is the Body of Christ in a community walking out their faith. This is a great time for us to be exactly that.
