Weeping may linger in the night but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5)
I have experienced both the weeping and the joy in recent days and suspect that is true for most of us. Last Sunday began with pure joy as we gathered from our homes to worship via live stream, and I began receiving online texts, emails and photos of many of you worshipping and sharing communion. The Spirit still knit us together as a community of faith and I am deeply grateful to our talented and dedicated staff (shout out to Matt Thompson and Paul Cutelli) who pulled this off in 48 hours so that we could receive the hope of the gospel and experience connectedness in the body of Christ.
Here are some updates about how Country Club Christian Church’s clergy and staff will continue to share in Christ’s ministry among us during this time. More ideas and strategies will emerge in the coming weeks as we dialogue with you and other church leaders about the hopes and needs of the wider community.
We are thankful for your support and encouragement during this difficult time, and we are especially grateful for your continued financial support, which will allow the church to serve in ministry with you through creativity and innovation. If you would like to share your weekly offering electronically, please do so at this link. And email us photos of you and your family worshipping from home this week.
The clergy and staff are working on ways that we can provide access to spiritual formation opportunities and small group social gatherings remotely. Stay tuned for more details. In the meantime you can catch up on any sermons you may have missed or rewatch your favorites at this link, or you can listen to sermons or the Heart and Mind podcast on Apple Podcasts.
I will be in touch via the Friday “Carla’s Candids” with additional news. Please feel free to contact me or any member of our clergy staff directly. Our direct dial numbers are on the website here.
We offer streaming broadcasts of our 11:00 service every Sunday morning. Tune in here to watch live, view an archived service, or CLICK HERE to view our Stream Spot Channel.
