Though we won’t be gathering in person, we still invite you to worship with us tomorrow morning at 10:30 AM. Here’s how you can participate:
– Tune in on time
Head over to our Facebook page a few minutes before 10:30 AM (being “on time” has never been so easy). You don’t need a facebook account to be able to watch the service, though if you have one you will be able to like and comment on our stream. If you can do it, learn how to mirror the screen on your computer or smartphone to your television so you and your family can easily experience the online service together.
– Worship as a family
We encourage you to participate as a family. Gather together before the start of the service, sit together, and pray together before the service begins. If you can, prepare some bread and drink (feel free to substitute for grape juice or wine) so that you can serve each other communion. If you have small children, prepare some activities for them to do if they get bored or restless during the service.
– Give to our church online
Not gathering in person has the potential to negatively affect our budget unless we all continue to generously give. Many of you already give online – thank you! We’ll share these instructions tomorrow as well, but we make giving online easy at Sweetwater Christian Church. You can give online at www.sweetwaterchristian.org/donate or by texting “Sweetwater” to 77977 on your mobile device.
It’s more important than ever that we find ways to foster community and togetherness. Here are some important things we’d like to ask you to do so we can keep in touch with you:
– Update your contact information
We are utilizing this time to update our contact information for all of our members and regular attendees. Please help us do that by going to a recent email from the church and clicking “Update Preferences” at the bottom of the email.
– Make sure you’re getting our texts
We utilize a texting service for the occasional important announcement (we use it sparingly, so don’t worry about getting a ton of text messages from us). If you already get texts from us, be sure and save our contact information by adding both of these numbers: (281) 724-3755 and 62488. If you are unsure whether you are already subscribed or not, text “Connect” to (281) 724-3755.
– Find information on our website
We will be putting all past and future updates in a central place online. If at any time you are looking for information, visit www.sweetwaterchristian.org/coronavirus.
All of us are having to adjust our schedules right now as schools, workplaces, and businesses are making the necessary changes to meet this crisis. Here are some of our most important announcements:
– Middle School Ministry
Our Middle School ministry will not be meeting tomorrow evening as planned. Parents and students, be on the lookout for more information to be sent to you soon.
– Summer Camp Fundraiser Lunch
We will be rescheduling the Summer Camp Fundraiser Lunch originally scheduled for Sunday, March 22. We will get the new date to you as soon as we have it.
– Future Services
While we have committed internally to making adjustments to our normal plans for this weekend and next weekend, the situation is fluid and we are working on ways to facilitate opportunities to gather together in worship and encouragement that still ensure everyone’s safety. We will keep you updated as soon as plans develop. Keep your eyes open!
