As we enter our second Sunday of not gathering in one place to worship, I want to remind you of a few things:
First, I miss you! It has been great to connect with some of you via phone or text and I am grateful for those opportunities to connect in that way. We want you to know that we are here for you. If you have any needs, please reach out so we can extend the hands and feet of Jesus in a caring way to you.
Also, it is important to remember that the church has never really been about the building. During these times we are reminded of just how great our God is. The word omnipresent has been on my mind lately and I have realized I don’t need to be in a building in order to connect with God and his people. I love the fact that God is with us wherever we are and as I am worshiping throughout the day, I know that there are so many others who are worshiping as well.
This week as I gathered with my pastor connect network of over 100 Pastors from across the country via video, I realized that I am not alone in dealing with how to be the church during these challenging times. We are continuing to look at how we can reach out during this time. The Harvest Pointe leadership team are greatly anticipating being with you next week for our worship time. It may look different than what we normally have, but we are excited about sharing with all of you.
We want to challenge you to reach out at least 2 people a day. I recommend you reaching out to 2 DIFFERENT people each day so you can reconnect with some and share stories of what God is doing in your life during this time.
Finally, we would love for you to share stories with us on how God is working and whom you are connecting with.
I look forward to seeing you face to face in the future as we continue to Love God, Love People and Impact our Community!
Your partners in ministry,
Pastor David and the leadership team at Harvest Pointe
