At Home Worship
ETHOS AT HOME
As the impact of coronavirus continues to develop around us, we want to respond with both wisdom and love as a church family. Public heath experts and our public officials have encouraged the postponing of public gatherings in order to prevent further spreading of the coronavirus.
We want to be a church that loves our neighbors well and listens to our governing authorities (Romans 13:1); with that being said, our Elders and Direction Team have decided that we will not be gathering for worship at any of our campuses (Cannery Ballroom, Marathon Music Works, and Hillsboro Village) on Sunday, April 5th.
Even though we won’t be gathering publicly for the next two weeks, we will continue to worship Jesus and live on mission together in several creative, intentional ways.
Online Worship Gatherings | Sundays @ 10AM
We will continue to worship each Sunday as a church family live and online at 10am. We encourage you to join us on our Youtube page so you can chat with others, share prayer requests, and experience the joy of connecting with others in real time.
Online Prayer Gathering | Sundays @ 7PM
We will also continue our weekly prayer gathering at 7pm each Sunday night. We encourage you to join us as we set aside time to pray for one another, our church, and our city in this time.
Online House Churches | Various Days & Times
We believe Jesus-centered community is more important than ever in this season. Our house churches will continue to meet during this time. If you are in a house church, contact your house church leader(s) regarding details for how you will meet virtually during this season. If you are not in a house church but would like to join one, send us an email at .
#1: UTILIZE THE RESOURCES FOR SUNDAYS
Our team will provide resources to get you started each week. New resources will be made available each Sunday online. Click here to see available resources.
#2: PREPARE IN ADVANCE
Good preparation goes a long way when it comes to worshipping God at home. Just as people prepare our public spaces for our worship gatherings each week, you will probably find it helpful to prepare your home for a time of worship. Here are a few suggestions:
- Prepare your mind, body, and living room for worship .
- Have your Bible and something to write with easily accessible.
- Have communion prepared and ready. You will want to have grape juice/wine and bread/crackers ready. You can find our communion recipe here.
#3: INVITE OTHERS TO JOIN
Invite your friends and family to join us online. There are lots of people that are feeling scared, confused, and isolated in this season. Be intentional about inviting others to encounter the love of Jesus with us during this time.
