DOING EVERYTHING IT CAN TO KEEP
PEOPLE CONNECTED DURING THIS

TRIED OUR BEST TO FIND A WAY TO
CONNECT WHICH SHOWS MOTIVATION,
WHICH SHOWS INITIATIVE AND I
THINK GOD HONORED THAT AND GAVE
US SUPPORT AND PEACE IN OUR HEART. EVERYTHING MOTIVATING US TO
CARRY FOR AND PRAY FOR AND ACT
FOR PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT HAVE THAT
PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO
CONNECT WITH TECHNOLOGY.>>AND WHILE THINGS ARE GOING TO
BE DIFFERENT FOR A WHILE, PASTOR
CALEB SAYS THEY WILL CONTINUE
SHARING THE WORD OF GOD IN EVERY
WAY THEY CAN.>>THE CHURCH IS NOT A BUILDING. THE CHURCH IS NOT AN “IT.”
THE CHURCH IS A COLLECTIVE BODY
THAT EXISTS. NO MATTER IF WE GATHER TOGETHER
OR IF WE’RE FAR APART WE
CONTINUE TO BE ONE BODY IN MANY
LOCATIONS.>>PASTOR CALEB SAYS THEY WILL
CONTINUE ONLINE WORSHIP SERVICES
AND COMMUNITY GROUPS UNTIL THE
AN DEMOCRA
