COVID-19 Updates:

Hey y’all, just wanted to touch base with a quick update.  Verse Psalm 46:10 is one I keep going to, “Be still, and know that I am God”.  Wow!  That’s good stuff!  

After I have talked with other pastors, leaders, and our church leadership, our desire has been to come up with a simple plan as we move forward into the coming weeks.  At this point, here are a few key points: 

 

 
1.  Worship will be live streamed on Facebook on Sunday mornings at 10:00am.  After the live stream, it will be on Youtube as well.  As always, people can “come as they are”…and now this can mean sitting in their underwear on their couch!  🙂 

 

2.  Daily bible reading plans will be available, one for families and a second for adults, starting this coming Sunday evening.  We want to use this time wisely, allowing God to speak to us (gathering) and putting into practice those things He would be calling us to (going). 

 

3.  Many of our small groups will continue to meet through online platforms like Skype, Zoom, and FaceTime.  Now is a great time to get plugged into a group to help build community during this time of isolation.  You can sign up under the ‘Get Connected’ section on our website.  

 

4.  For those who support The Dwelling financially, now is a great time to be made aware of our online giving platform. 🙂  I know this isn’t preferred by everyone, but at this time, I know Jacqueline and I will be switching to online giving too.  You can find our secure giving platform on our website under ‘Give’.  You can also mail in your gift: The Dwelling, P.O. Box 2006, New Caney, Tx 77357.  

 

5.  If you aren’t getting emails from us, please sign up on our website under ‘Get Connected’.  Also, download our mobile app, and keep an eye on facebook and our website for updates and communication. 

 

6.  And lastly, please share any prayer requests you might have to our website under the ‘Get Connected / Prayer Request’ tab on our website.  For any other pastoral care needs, please don’t hesitate to call me at (281) 299-1909 or shoot me an email at sethkunze@gmail.com.  

I am so thankful for our God who is in control!  I am so thankful for each of you!  I am so thankful for how Jesus will work through all of this!

1.  Tomorrow morning I will be on a conference call with pastors from the Harvest Partnership to collaborate concerns and best ideas as we move forward.
 
2.  Tomorrow evening I will be on a conference call with The Dwelling’s Senior Leadership Team to discuss a longer term plan moving forward over the next weeks and months.
 
3.  Wednesday afternoon I will be on a conference call with a team of volunteers to begin implementing parts of the plan (including plans for worship, online interaction, care for the elderly and sick, devotionals, etc). (Also, when you are made aware of a person’s needs please provide help where possible, involve your small group, and feel free to contact me if necessary).
 
4.  And Wednesday evening I will be on a conference call with yet another group of leaders, our Sunday Team Facilitators, to discuss their importance as they represent and lead our Sunday teams and approximately 70+ volunteers.
 
5.  We will all continue to pray. 🙂

 

It is a crazy week, but let us not forget…God is not sleeping.   None of this is surprising Him or catching Him off guard.  He continues to work, rule, and reign!  We are called to continue being the church!
