As you are acutely aware, the world is in the midst of a major pandemic. Because of this there are major adjustments and disruptions to what we have come to know as our normal lives. Changes in routines and postponements of activities are being announced every moment as we attempt to slow the progress of this outbreak.
University Church is not immune to these changes. We are doing whatever we can to do our part in “flattening the curve” of the outbreak so that our healthcare system isn’t swamped so that beds and caregivers are available to those who become ill. With that in mind, after much prayer, at this time we are unable to have in-person worship. We are shifting all live in-person worship to an online platform. You can access our full worship service featuring worship leaders and select musicians here on our website under the worship tab, just the recorded sermon or through our YouTube Channel. Additionally, for those who don’t have internet capability, a DVD of the recorded service will be available on request.
During this critical time, it is my hope that we can continue all staff positions who will be assisting with ministry, while some may be working from home. Please remember that our ministry is more than our worship experiences. Our Child Development Center is a vital part of the community and will continue their services as long as it is foreseeable. This is certainly straining everyone and the financial impact is huge. Our church, as you know, does not have reserve funds so your continued financial support is vitally important to support our ministries, especially at this time. Thank you in advance for your ongoing support. Contributions can be made on the Donate Tab, mailed directly to the church.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us and each other. Let us know how you are and if there is any way that we might be able to help. This is a difficult time for all of us and I thank you for your understanding and ask that you hold in prayer those affected by this disease, all the healthcare workers who are responding to this critical need and the leaders of not only this state and nation but leaders throughout the world.
Please stay safe and well. We didn’t see this coming – but all things will be new on the other side of this.
“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings of eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Grace, peace and wellness to all,
