Dear TrueNorth Church Family,
Over the last week and especially over the last 3 days, our nation has entered into a unique and seemingly unprecedented season. The ripple effect of COVID-19 has been felt across the wide spectrum of our social environment and has begun to affect daily lives.
Our leadership team including our pastors and elders have been in constant communication since the beginning of the unfolding of this event. With the advice of medical professionals and community leaders along with a vast network of resources, we have sought to create wise decisions on behalf of the people that attend our services and events.
To this end, we have made the difficult decision to transition our normal Sunday services to an online-only format. Additionally, Element student ministry programming on Wednesday evening is postponed. Any additional changes will be announced.
We are taking this approach because we know that a church of our size includes people not only from across the CSRA, but across the greater region including those who travel. Furthermore, both locally and nationwide, gatherings of greater than 250 are being discouraged. As a church that reaches nearly 3000 people each Sunday, we want to do our best to “flatten the curve” of the spread of this virus by shifting our ministry approach during this season.
We encourage you to join us for worship online Sunday at 9:00am, 10:45am and 12:30pm. This will be available on our website at truenorthchurch.com, the TrueNorth app and on Facebook. We hope that you will commit to joining us each week for this experience and leverage this as an opportunity to share our services with people you know by posting the link or even inviting people to join you in your home.
We know that in these uncertain times the church carries a message of hope that needs to be heard by everyone. We also know that the people of our church will want to lean in and serve those in need in our community. We are evaluating needs daily and will be sharing information with you soon as we continue to confirm our plans. For now, let your light shine to everyone you encounter. We know that we have nothing to fear because God is on our side! Let’s do our best to share this hope with anyone we meet.
Our staff and offices will continue to operate during our regularly scheduled hours. If you have any questions or needs, don’t hesitate to ask. You can reach us by phone during office hours at 803-279-1555 or feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to respond to you as soon as possible.
We encourage you to stay connected for updates regarding any additional changes and response opportunities by following our social media channels on Facebook and Instagram or by checking our blog.
We love you and we know that we will see God continue to use TrueNorth Church to create passionate followers of Jesus Christ now and in the future!
