Dear Free State Family,
After much prayer, discussion, and advice from healthcare professionals and other congregations, here is our current plan for the near future:
- Suspending Congregational Gatherings
- We want to do our part to prevent further spreading of COVID-19 by following some of the patterns of our city and surrounding areas.
- We are suspending all officially organized gatherings through March 28th.
- (We will send out further information as March 28th approaches)
* While we aren’t officially organizing gatherings as a church, we realize people will still choose to spend time together individually, meet in small groups, and have D-times & bible studies. If you do so, please use CDC guidelines.
- Live Stream
- For each Sunday that we do not meet as a congregation, there will be a live stream message that will begin at 10:30 am. We will be continuing our series on Daniel.
- To access our live stream, go to our website (https://freestate.church) and click the “Live Stream” link at the top.
- Online Giving
- We’re asking that everyone participate in online giving during this time.
- This can be done by going to our website (https://freestate.church), and clicking the “GIVE” link at the top. Follow the instructions from there.
- We realize this may be a new way of giving for some of you, but this is important for the financial viability of the church.
- Individual Health Discernment
- Please feel comfortable making any decision you feel is best for yourself and your family, regarding group meetings of any size.
- If you or your children have recently been sick or feel sick, please do not attend any group gatherings. This is for your protection, as well as the protection of others.
- During this time of limited interaction, let’s remember to stay connected to God, through the word and prayer, and stay connected to one another through our many avenues of technology.
- Let’s be alert to how Satan will be working during this time, and let’s remain faithful, knowing that God is working through this to draw people to him.
