The COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it an overwhelming amount of bad news. Hundreds of thousands infected, thousands of deaths, financial markets crashing, schools closing, businesses suffering, and so much more. The negative headlines seem to never end. In the midst of it all, the Church has a promise and a hope that is so much greater than the darkness. We have GREAT NEWS.
During the next 4 weeks, our church will be regularly posting around the Great News that we have in the story of Jesus. This Great News is so much greater, so much more contagious, than all the bad news and darkness in our world. In an effort to encourage you during this time of crisis, we will be sharing scriptures, stories, and encouragements around the ideas of HOPE, PEACE, JOY, and LOVE being contagious.
We pray these next few weeks can be more than a crisis, but a time for you to reflect on what Jesus has done for you and a time where you can focus on the hope we have in Him!
