Tuesday 03/29/2020 Update from Pastor Jim
Dear Journey Church,
There is no question that Coronavirus (COVID-19) is on everyone’s minds. A recurring theme we hear from numerous experts is that we should not be living in a state of panic or making decisions from a place of fear. The Apostle Paul told Timothy, “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control (1 Timothy 1:7).” At the same time, our Lord Jesus told us that we should be “wise as serpentsand innocent as doves” (Matthew 10:16). We are committed to being prepared, but not panicked; aware, but not afraid.
We are now meeting every Sunday morning at 9:00 and 10:30 am online at journeychurchtucson.online.church. This is an interactive livestream experience with an opportunity to connect with live hosts for pastor care and encouragements. If for whatever reason you miss one of these livestream gatherings, you can access them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/channel/UC1guwox9S0mpPxSiNdTqOYw.
Regardless of future restrictions or changes, our plan is to continue to meet together as a church in small groups and online with regular worship and teaching. If you are not currently connected to a small group, please email Rick at firstname.lastname@example.org to find a group near you.
Please text “JOURNEYCHURCH” to 40650 to receive notifications for any changes for our services and events. We'll only send you important text updates.
We will continue to communicate and update through email and on our website www.journeyefc.org. Please take a minute to make sure we have your most up-to-date contact information – send to email@example.com.
If you would like to financially support the work of Journey Church during this time of heightened vigilance, you can give through our website at www.journeyefc.org/giving.
Compelled to Love
One of the main catalysts for the church’s explosive growth in the first, second, and third centuries was how Christians navigated disease, suffering, and death. In other words, this is a time of unprecedented potential for the spread of the gospel. Let’s remember that the Church is not a building or the Sunday morning celebration service, it is each one of us in the body of Christ. Let’s remember to live in faith, rather than fear. Let’s keep loving people to Jesus and making a difference in our community. Let’s remember to pray for those who are affected physically, emotionally and economically. Remember that the Holy Spirit is our ever-present advocate and comforter.
Love in Christ,
