Quick Summary of Evergreen’s Response to COVID-19
In an effort to do our part in limiting the spread of coronavirus, the Leadership Team has agreed to suspend our major ministry activities here at the church building for several weeks. Here are the major changes.
- No on-site weekend worship services
- Video worship services live streamed/posted at www.evergreenbible.com
- No mid-week Awana or in person Youth Group meetings
- No mid-week in person Life Group meetings
The Heart and Hope Behind our Decisions
Our English and Spanish leadership team and spouses have met, focusing primarily on the discussion of what our response should be in light of COVID-19. Our goal as a church is to glorify Jesus in all things, and that includes prayerfully considering what is the wisest course of action for the congregation, and for the community around us.
After wrestling with this important topic, we feel that it is wisest to cancel our weekend gatherings for the time being. Our team has been following the rapidly unfolding developments in the COVID-19 outbreak, and we will continue to update you on status of further weekend gatherings.
In the meantime, we will be posting a stream/recording of our service to Facebook Live on Sunday morning at 11:00 am. You will be able to find the link to the broadcast of our service on our Facebook page, along with our website. We encourage you to tune in during this time to worship with us.
We do not make this decision lightly. In this extraordinary time in which there is much fear and uncertainty in our world, community, and church, we desire first and foremost to seek the Lord in how we are to serve Him as effectively as we can. In light of the recommendations from our local governing health authorities, along with the research done about lessening the impact of the spread of COVID-19, we believe it wisest to respond with urgency.
As of this time, we will also be suspending our AWANA program, along with our Youth Group meetings for the time being. We feel that it is wisest to follow the state of Washington in the precautions that it has taken with our Public Schools, which are currently closed. As with our weekend services, we will continue to update you on the status of these ministries as we receive updates from our local health authorities.
We have asked our Life Group leaders to decide amongst their groups as to whether or not they will continue to meet through an online platform, such as Zoom. We feel that Life Groups continuing to be connected online and through phone calls will be a vital way for our church to continue encouraging one another during this season.
Our Hope for You and Your Family
As Christians, we are called to be wise in the way that we live, especially in the ways that we are to care for one another. In times of chaos, the church is a meant to be a place of stability and support. As we recently heard in a sermon from Pastor Toby, we are called to be “Salt and Light” to the world (Matthew 5:15-16). We truly believe that in moments like this current one, God will use His church to proclaim the glorious truths of His gospel boldly. Please join us in praying that we as the church would know how to best respond to the needs that will certainly present themselves in the coming weeks within our community, along with our church family.
We also want you to know that, as church leaders, we are not simply ‘waiting this thing out’ Instead, we are seeking to lean on the Lord even harder, diligently seeking the Spirit’s leading on how to best shepherd our flock who, for the time being, will not be meeting together. As a staff, we will be meeting to talk about ways that we can be resourcing you and your families. Please be checking back on our website, on Facebook, and on your emails for the most recent updates, resources, and announcements.
We love you all, and we will miss meeting together in the weekends to come. Yet, even still, God will get the glory. We can be sure of that.
“Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.” – Psalm 103:2-4
Love, from the EBC Staff and Leadership Team
