Due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus and the call to limit exposure through large gatherings, we’ve made the decision to temporarily suspend all in-person gatherings of over 10 people.
People who contract COVID-19 may be contagious for days before they realize that they’re sick. Because we want to protect the most vulnerable in our community we will not be meeting together in the church building until further notice. We feel a responsibility to be part of the solution and not the problem of spreading the virus. Continue to check this website and our Facebook page for any changes.
Know that we do not make this decision lightly. We believe that corporate worship is a biblical mandate for Christians and important to our individual and corporate spiritual health and we will resume in-person gatherings as quickly as safely possible.
•The good news is that you can still gather with us for Church Online!
The worship team will lead us in worship and Pastor Gary will deliver a message by live-stream on our Facebook page Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.
Live streaming will be available every Sunday morning as long as the health crisis continues. If you can't watch it at the live time, it will be available on our Facebook page and also in our Sermon Archives for you to watch at your convenience. Please be patient with us as we navigate through the process of becoming an online church.
•Be a Digital Missionary
While it’s easy to feel like life is on pause during an event like this, we believe that God is still at work in and through our church body. With many concerned about coronavirus and the emergency response throughout the nation, we think this is actually a great opportunity to share the hope of Christ and invite your friends to join you online to watch the service.
•What About Groups?
Our weekly Small Groups are suspended along with our other in-person gatherings of over 10 people. If you lead a Small Group, you might want to consider meeting digitally with tools like Zoom, FaceTime or Google Hangouts.
•A Note About Giving
If you’re a regular giver, please continue to be faithful with your generosity to Life Church Meridian. Your weekly gifts are a vital resource that allows us to continue the work that God has called us to do.
Even though we are not using the building to congregate regularly, we still have to pay the rent, utilities, and other expenses of maintaining the ministry.
