Church at home

"Worshippers never leave church... We carry our sanctuary with us wherever we go." -A.W. Tozer

We are called to be the Church. In this time of self-isolation and uncertainty, we are still the Church.  It just looks different. The Church has lasted through many pandemics, governments, plagues, and unknowns.  We will get through this too.  We believe in a God who lives and moves among us. God is here with us and we are here for each other.

We are here for you, in-person, by phone, online and via Zoom.

MICRO-LOANS

Making micro-loans through the lending website Kiva.org offers a way to makes a difference in the world while practicing self-isolation. Log on, look through various groups and individuals asking for a loan, and lend someone $25. Once you get repaid, you can choose another group or individual to lend to!

PLAY

Time at home presents a blessed chance to let children be children and play!  During this time for slowing down, you may spend some time playing with your children. Use building toys like blocks, LEGOs, Lincoln Logs, Keva Planks, etc. to create Bible story scenes and use them to play out the stories.

SING & DANCE

Have a sing-along, have a dance party! Listen to family-friendly music that reminds us of God’s love for us. Make some joyful noise and play along with your instruments or, you can even make use of other things around the house for percussion. Here are a couple suggestions: Ellie Holcomb’s albums “Sing; Creation Songs” and “Sing; Remembering Songs”
