CORONAVIRUS UPDATE // M-NOTE 3.27.2020

March 27, 2020

Here is a list of  all the ways you can connect and participate in ministry at The Gathering during this time of social distancing

Worship: Worship online Sundays at 9am, 10:45am and 5pm on Facebook Live, YouTube or gatheringnow.org/ondemand. The entire service will remain on The Gathering OnDemand for you to watch or share whenever, wherever. Please continue to make Sunday worship a rhythm in your life. 

Gathering Kids: Follow Kids on Facebook or Instagram to get a link to this week’s bible story and to find the kids BINGO card activity to help them follow along during live online worship. You can also find these materials on our site

Gathering Students: Will host a live-streamed Thrive on Youtube Gathering Students on Sunday nights before CoreGroups. Middle schoolers start at 5pm, with high schoolers following at 5:30. 

CoreGroups: If you aren’t in a CoreGroup (small groups that meet throughout the week), now is a great time to jump in. New online groups are forming daily. You can join a group here. Or, if you need help finding a group reach out to Melissa Baum.

Giving: Your generosity is critical to our ministry during this time. If you haven’t done it, I encourage you to automate your monthly or weekly giving online or through automatic bill pay. You can also give anytime online to support The Gathering. If you have questions or problems setting this up, contact Dave Dietrich

Prayer and Care: Myself and all of our site pastors are here for you. That is why we are starting virtual Coffee with the Pastors. If you need to talk, want one of us to pray with you, or are struggling in any way, sign up to talk to one of us here.

Connect: Next week I am hosting NEXT: ONLINE – a virtual event to help new people learn more about and connect to The Gathering. If you have been worshiping with us, this is a great next step. Sign up here.

Serve: Following Jesus means being in service to one another, especially during times of crisis. We have added a feature to our app that allows you to post a need and/or fulfill a need. You can also check out our Website here for a list of specific needs within the St. Louis community.
