SUNDAY SERVICES, GROUPS & EVENTS
SUSPENDED AT HOPE VINEYARD
March 18, 2020
Dear Hope Vineyard Family,
The coronavirus continues to grip our nation and our world. Fear both imagined and real is taking its toll. We pray that you are continuing to remain strong – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. During this crisis, we encourage you to use wisdom not just for your physical wellbeing but for your spiritual as well. We the Pastors and Leaders of Hope Vineyard love you and will continue to care for you during this stressful time.
With the CDC’s suggestion of no gatherings more than 50 and President Trump’s encouragement of no more than 10, we have decided to utilize technology to stay connected with you. Our website https://www.vineyard-stl.org/ and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HopeVineyardChurch/ are critical communication tools and we encourage you to visit them regularly.
Here are some measures prompted by wisdom that we are taking to continue to love and serve you. Based on the CDC recommendations we are gearing up to use these for the next 8 weeks, but we will be continually monitoring the situation and will communicate to you weekly any changes that we make.
We are suspending the public gatherings of our Sunday Services for the next 8 weeks. But we will continue to have our service online through livestreaming. You can access our livestream at 9:30am on Sundays on your computer, smart TV or smart phone by clicking on the link at the top of the sermons page of our website https://www.vineyard-stl.org/sermons.
We are also encouraging our Small Groups to meet online. We have increased our videoconferencing capabilities and are making them available to our Small Group leaders. Those of you presently in a small group will be contacted by your leader with information on how to login to the Zoom videoconference.
If you are not presently part of a Small Group, I would encourage you to join one during this time. This is a great way to stay connected with people. You can check out our Small Groups on our website https://www.vineyard-stl.org/smallgroups. Once you find one you would like to try you can either email the leader or contact the church office 314-487-2223 and they will get you connected.
We also want to encourage you to stay connected with individuals in the church. If you are struggling in anyway, please contact someone. If the Lord puts someone on your heart, please contact them. It is during times like these that we need to be caring for one another like the family that we are.
We are working on ways that we will be able to respond to the increasing physical needs of our church and community as the coronavirus takes a toll on our economy. We encourage you to stay faithful in your financial giving so we can respond generously when it is needed. You can mail or drop off your gift at the church mailbox (locked and secure) or on our website https://www.vineyard-stl.org/donate.
Lastly, please know we are praying for you. If you have any need please contact us either by phone 314-487-2223 or email email@example.com. We will respond ASAP.
