COVID-19 and Glendale City Church
MARCH 28, 2020
An Update from Your Pastoral Staff
Like all of you, we continue to pay attention to developments regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We are in solidarity with the guidance and directives from our city, county, state and federal officials on the necessity of maintaining social distance to "flatten the curve" of the infection rate. Based upon the City of Glendale's state of emergency extension voted this week, we expect that our church campus will remain closed through at least the end of April.
For our members who need assistance with errands such as grocery and pharmacy runs, we have an Errand Assistance team ready to help you. Please contact executive office manager, Serena Miller, 818-244-7241 x202, and she will connect you with a team member.
We as a pastoral staff have been busy doing our best to create an online community to bring support and encouragement to you each week. Here is our current schedule of weekly LIVE gatherings:
- Morning Worship. Saturdays at 11:00a, Glendale City Church YouTube Channel. You can also join a post-worship fellowship video conference on Tom and George's Zoom Channel.
- Survive & Thrive Wednesday. Each Wednesday at 7:00p, Glendale City Church Zoom Channel. Practical advice and insight from resident experts and community leaders, with live Q & A.
- Prayer & Study Thursday. Each Thursday at 7:00p, Glendale City Church Zoom Channel. Interactive prayer and discussion with the pastors on Jesus' teachings about the end times.
You can find recordings of our Morning Worships and Survive & Thrive Wednesdays to watch anytime on the Glendale City Church YouTube Channel.
Make sure you’re subscribed to our weekly e-newsletter, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, and have downloaded the “Glendale City Church” app from your app store. We will be communicating with you multiple times each week through them. You can still reach the church staff by calling 818-244-7241 and selecting the person you need to speak to.
We invite you in joining us in unceasing prayer for our medical professionals, first responders and all essential workers who are serving us in this moment of crisis. We give thanks for all of you who are selflessly bringing the protective, comforting, and healing presence of God to our city. We encourage you to pursue spiritual community in other ways as we continue this unprecedented journey. Call your friends, check in on your neighbors and watch for opportunities to support those on the front lines of this crisis. And take advantage of the increased alone time to meet God in the silence.
Be well. Keep the faith. Carry on in the Spirit.
Your Pastors—Todd, Mike, Leif and Johnny
