Fresh Start and the CoronaVirus

 

March 17,2020

 

O my people, trust in him at all times.
    Pour out your heart to him,
    for God is our refuge.  Psalm 62:8

 

Fresh Start Family,

 

After much deliberation and reviewing the new guidelines, we as your Fresh Start staff and leadership council feel it is in the best interest of our congregation and community to suspend all activities and services on campus at Fresh Start until April 5 Palm Sunday. Now with this date being stated, we understand that we could possibly resume earlier or even later depending on the current environment. 

 

So what does this mean for Fresh Start?  Well, it means that we are going to find new ways to worship God and support our Church family.  While we will not meet on campus we will provide ways through our digital world. 

  • Sunday mornings we will be providing a service starting at 10:30 am with worship and the message online on our church Facebook page. We encourage you to be a part of this and join in with your family and friends.  This service will then be posted later to our Youtube channel which can be located through our Fresh Start website at freshstartok.com.
  • FS Kids will be posting a video and questions to our FS Kids Facebook page each week so be sure to ask to join that page so you and your FS Kids can continue to grow together.
  • FS Youth will be hosting a live youth meeting Wednesday the 25th through Zoom. Be sure to meet up and spend some time in prayer and a short message.
  • For the next few Wednesday nights, Pastor Brian will be live on our Facebook page for a time of prayer and a short devotional starting at 6:30 pm until 7:15 pm.
  • Staff will be working from the office, but we ask that you contact us through phone or email rather than coming by the office.
  • We will also be posting prayer requests and praises for you to be praying over on our main site. Please send all prayer requests to freshstartok@gmail.com.  If you do not want these to be made public be sure to tag them for Pastors Only.
  • We encourage you to reach out to your church family and check in on them throughout the coming weeks and let us know if there are needs that we can help address.

Please continue to tithe as we support missions, food pantry, and our regular ministries.  You can tithe online at https://freshstartcommunitychurch.churchcenter.com/giving or TEXT any amount to give at 84321.

 

Feel free to contact us with any questions at the church office at 794-7313, through email at freshstartok@gmail.com, or through our various online services.

 

We appreciate your support and prayers as we move forward through these complicated choices.  We know that the Lord is above all things and we are leaning into His wisdom and care.  We believe that as a world, as a nation, as a community, and as a church that we will learn from this and grow in our faith in God even more.  May God bless you all and keep you safe.

 

But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised.
    I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?  Psalm 56:3,4

 

                        In His Service,

                        Pastor Brian, the Pastoral Staff, and the Leadership Council
