November 17th Update:
Dear Community Church,
How thankful we are that our God is an awesome God! He never stops loving us. In our times of need, we always know God will be there. Our faith in Him does not waver even in difficult times through which we continue to pass. Since the middle of last March we have been constantly adapting how we do “Church” in order to have the safest of environments for those who attend on Sunday mornings. We have also followed the guidelines recommended by the health department in an effort to remain a positive witness in our region.
Once again, we find ourselves with an opportunity to help eradicate this virus through our actions. The health department has announced guidelines for our activities beginning Wednesday, November 18th at 12:01a.m. After much prayer and consultation with our church leadership, and in compliance with these guidelines, we will be implementing the following actions:
1. The Church will remain closed at both campuses through the 9th of December, or until another announcement is made regarding the virus.
2. All members of staff at both campuses will be working from their homes throughout these three weeks.
3. All scheduled events at the church facilities in Mt. Pleasant and Alma will be canceled beginning the 18th of November through the 9th of December.
4. We will be worshiping online through our website, www.mpcc.org, and through social media each Sunday at 10 a.m.
5. Other opportunities for interaction with the church leadership will occur through social media each week and will be announced in the same manner.
Please continue to pray for all who are participating in the ministries of Community Church in Mt. Pleasant and Alma. We know that our Lord will preserve us in these days as we continue to gather in our hearts and online with the dedicated purpose of loving one another and leading people into a focused life with Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. As Pastor Alan said a few weeks ago, we may be over the hill (referring to our 40th church anniversary), but we are gaining momentum. Soon, these days will be behind us and we will continue to march Together on Purpose.
Please let us know how you are doing. If you have any needs or questions, do not hesitate to call. The building may be closed, but the Kingdom is still on the move for Christ.
Through His power and grace,
Alan Cullen - Lead Pastor
Eric Barz - Executive Pastor
Wally Hostetter - Teaching Pastor
Aaron Mora - Alma Campus Pastor
