Dear Higher Expectations Church,
The coronavirus pandemic has had profound global effects. This week, we have watched the news unfold regarding the precautionary measures that are being taken to reduce the spread of the virus throughout our country and in our city.
Exercising Godly Wisdom
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above - James 1:17
We are thankful for the God-given knowledge of our medical professionals and find it wise to heed their medical advice. Medical leaders are saying that social distancing is helpful in reducing the spread of COVID19. We plan to do our part by proactively protecting our most vulnerable and susceptible community members.
Caring for God’s People
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God - Acts 20:28
As we took stock of the diversity of our congregation regarding age and health, we know and understand that we have a responsibility to provide everyone with a safe worship environment.
Gathering of the Saints
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, encouraging one another - Hebrews 10:24-25
Corporate Worship: Technology has also proven to be a good gift that God has given us. Therefore, through the use of technology, we will still meet together online for Sunday service.
Join us every Sunday morning online at 10:30 AM.
Agenda for Sunday Mornings
Worship in song
Worship in God’s Word
Worship in prayer
Worship in giving
Community Groups: Mid-week community group will be hosted via online meetings. Expect to hear from your community group leader on how to connect for Bible study.
Finally, take courage and do not lose heart. We serve a mighty God who is our keeper and protector. During our most desolate times, be reminded that God is faithful to his children and that He is our keeper. We love all of our church family. We are praying for peace of mind, physical provision, and that you will count it all joy, knowing that your faith is being strengthened.
Grace and Peace,
Higher Expectations Community Church
