CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - May 9th

 

Friends:

 The status quo continues for the time being. However, as we hear broader discussion about cautious plans for us to move towards a step forward, I think we, as a church, need to (faithfully and safely) explore various scenarios as we look towards the future, and ask how we will handle it. Certainly nothing will change in the near term, but I believe we should be proactive and intentional (not to mention faithful) by thinking about and discussing what lies ahead. Of course, there are decisions we can’t make now, and we leave those in God’s hands, trusting in him. In addition, things can change. This is why exploring different developments and prospects is prudent and important. re are many practical questions in my mind, and pondering these now, is wise. Much of what the future will be for us will depend on government directives, how safe folks feel and how well prepared we are.

But for the time being we remain in an ambiguous state. And hard as that is, we need to trust in God’s presence with us. I and the church staff continue (mostly remotely) to handle not only essential functions of the church, but many other new and sometimes complicated things that this pandemic has placed in our laps. I am grateful to them for their steadfastness.

And let us hold onto each other in this time, because it will be together, as the church, that we will emerge into a new day God has is even now preparing for us.

A few updates:

  1. Of course, tomorrow, Sunday the 10th, we will have church via Facebook live, at the usual time of 10AM. Many (myself included) have appreciated the addition of music to this time. There were, and will be, many hurdles to clear (legal and practical) because we are livestreaming, but we are grateful to be able to offer what we can. We hope you can join us. And we continue with our Wednesday evening time of prayer – “Meeting at the Well” – at 7:30PM. Both can be found at our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ccoqh/ and can be watched live or later as a video. You don’t need to be on Facebook to view either.
  2. Many thanks to all of you who continue to support the church through your faith commitments and other offerings. We have tried to make it easier by adding on online way to contribute. You can make an offering through our website www.ccoqh.org . Just look for the “Donate Online” button. And you can designate funds towards your pledge or as a one time contribution, and mailing a check still works as well. It is interesting that many from around the country who watch our live broadcasts have been contributing towards our ministry, through the website.
  3. If you would like to suggest a prayer request to be included in Sunday mornings, please email me – revmallan@comcast.net – and I will do my best to include it.

In the meantime, let us seek God’s presence and grace, as we keep each other and our beloved church, in our prayers. Please know that all of you are in my daily prayers as well.

 

Blessings,

Rev. Mark+

 

 

 

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - April 25

 

Friends

How are you? How are you really? Let me know.  I, and others in the church are reaching out as we can, to try and find out, but feel free to email me – revmallan@comcast.net . I would love to hear, and to be able to help, if that is what you need. Please don’t hesitate or think I am too busy. Just check in.

The church continues to be officially closed but many things are still happening. Staff is still doing keeping essential functions going – sometimes from the office or otherwise remotely. We are doing our best to continue to offer times of livestream worship. Many outreach programs are still helping other folks. And prayers are still being lifted. We are still the church. I do have to say that I am sensing that light is visible. Of course none of us know the exact course of things, but I do feel that things are moving in a better direction.

A few updates:

  1. Tomorrow, of course we will have church via Facebook live, at the usual time of 10AM. We have a special surprise addition beginning tomorrow. We hope you can join us. And we continue with our Wednesday evening time of prayer – “Meeting at the Well” – at 7:30PM. Both can be found at our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ccoqh/ and can be watched live or later as a video. You don’t need to be on Facebook to view either.
  2. It is a challenging time for us all and for the church. We are very grateful that many, who are able, continue to support the church financially during these days. We have tried to make it easier by adding on online way to contribute. You can make an offering through our website www.ccoqh.org . Just look for the “Donate Online” button. And you can designate funds towards your pledge or as a one time contribution. Or the old fashioned way of mailing a check still works.

Let us keep each other, and our church, families and communities in our daily prayers. And let us give thanks for many who work so hard to protect us and serve us through this time.

 

Blessings,

Rev. Mark+

Mission Trip

The Christ Church Outreach Team is ‘reaching out’ a bit farther this summer and will be taking a group of volunteers to NJ to stay for five days (August 10-14) and help rebuild houses with SBP, a well-regarded organization with which we have worked before in New Orleans. We can accommodate 10 people. There is a sign-up sheet for those interested on the bulletin board. The commitment needs to be soon and firm so please ask MJ Phelan your questions (MaryJane.Phelan@gmail.com).
