CHURCH-WIDE UPDATES + ANNOUNCEMENTS
Announcements and Updates for all three sites, including information about our response to COVID-19.
Effective Sunday, November 29, 2020, Forest Grove Community Church will be ceasing our in-person Worship Gatherings. This includes all Worship Gatherings across all sites until January 9, 2021 at the earliest.
As a Church, we want to support the people and systems that are made vulnerable by the effects of COVID-19. We want to be part of the solution and reduce events that could spread this virus.
We believe that the Church doesn’t exist within our walls; the Church is all of us. We believe the Holy Spirit is still within all of us and will continue to work even if we don’t gather in person.
Online options will still be available, and updates for other ministries will happen through our site pastors and weekly emails.
Pastor Bruce has more information in the video below.
It is normal to feel anxious and afraid while we deal with the effects of Covid 19. It is a stressful time for everyone, and we understand the effects that it may have on an individual’s mental health. If you or someone you know is struggling, remember you do not have to go through it alone. If you need someone to pray with you or need help finding resources, please contact Delores at email@example.com or Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org
In this video update, Lead Pastor Bruce Enns and our Council Co-Moderators, Jonathan Durance and Ron MacKay, share more about their heart to serve in this time and talk about what to expect at the upcoming Congregations meeting.
This Congregations meeting will have less decision making and more vision casting around our Strategic plan. There will also be a key focus on our Global partnerships; both our current partnerships and an environmental scan of developing partnerships. We will even have some of our Global partners join us live! To finish the meeting, we will get to hear a testimony of someone joining membership at the Attridge Congregation.
We invite everyone from our Broadway, Attridge and North Site Congregations to join us on Sunday, November 8 at 7:00pm for our virtual Congregations Meeting on Zoom. For the detailed agenda and how to join on Zoom, please use the link below.
