Dear Church Family,
Due to the Conference request for all churches to close effective immediately, we will not be having services on location at Lewisville until further notice. This decision was not made lightly, or without regard to our desire to meet together. The cases in Texas are increasing, and the concerns exist that churches could be contributing to the increase in cases, and therefore we have agreed to follow the Texas Conference request, and close up until we get the all-clear signal.
So what will we be doing in the meantime?
We will have special connect groups online beginning Sabbath, July 11, with start times of 10:30A, lasting until 11:45A. This will be via Zoom conference call and information for the meeting are as follows:
Zoom Meeting Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89883622099
Meeting ID: 898 8362 2099
NON-Video / Phone Only: PH: 346-248-7799,, Enter ID: 85305168109#
NON-Video One-tap Option: 346-248-7799,,89883622099#
We strongly encourage you to do this, to keep our relationships growing and going through all of the events transpiring. We should have done this sooner, and I, as your pastors, will take the responsibility for it not happening. I failed you, and I apologize. I know we need these relationships and connect groups, and perhaps the mid-week Zoom was not enough.
What happens after 11:45A?
Great question! We will be streaming the service for Mosaic's 12:00pm Service coming from Arlington for the next several weeks, until we are up and running with our own streaming platform from this church. We are exploring a partnership in ministry with Arlington church currently, and we feel they have invested in the resources of a great worship experience online, and we should take advantage of it while we get ours purchased and installed in the very near future.
For those who are unable to attend Church services, we ask that you would consider setting up your online giving, if you have not done so yet. You can give online just as you would on the tithe envelope. Thank you for your faithfulness in this stressful time, and one of heightened fear and strain on a personal level for many.
Online giving allows you to set up with a debit/credit card, or your checking account. I have used online giving through the Adventist Church for over 8 years and have not once experienced an episode of security being breached. Your information, and your data, is safe and secure. Please set up today if you have not before.
If you would like a phone call of encouragement, just drop me a line at my email, or sent a text, makes a call. I am your pastor, and consider it an honor to love, serve, and walk this journey with you. We are on the road to heaven, and it is most likely closer to realization then any of us could ever believe possible. We are almost home!
On the journey...
