Dear Church Family,

 As we make adjustments to align with our stay-home-work-safe order, let’s be intentional to Stay Connected! Our launching pad for Staying Connected and Helping One Another is our new Champion Forest Homepage. Even though our daily rhythms have shifted, the church is still the church!  Let’s commit to stay connected while we are apart.  On the homepage you’ll find plenty of resources and tools, but I want to point out a few:

  1. Church Online
    During this current season we are navigating, we’ll have Sunday and Wednesday experiences online. The easiest way to get there is through championforest.org.
  2. Daily Bible Reading
    We want the entire church family to walk together through the book of Mark in our Bibles. Click “Devotionals” on the homepage and get started today.  You can even sign up and get it delivered to your email every morning.  Invite others into the journey!
  3. Life Groups
    YES, our Life Groups will continue to meet virtually.  Kids Ministry, Student Ministry, and Adult Ministries are staying connected!  Find more info at championforest.org and make the connection.
  4. Get Help / Give Help
    Our Community Ministry Center continues to operate, it is essential! On our homepage you’ll also find a section where you can request help from your church family.  If you’re in need of assistance in this season, please visit the site and let us know how we can come alongside you.  If you’ve been looking for ways you can serve others in our church family and community, visit the homepage and click “I can help” to see how you can meet needs. 

Let’s be intentional so that when we look back on this season it will be a time where we grew in our love relationship with Jesus. God spoke to my heart this morning through our Daily Reading together in God’s Word from the gospel of Mark:

“And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Peace! Be still!’ And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.” – Mark 4:39 (ESV)

Together, let’s keep praying fervently, reading our Bibles daily, encouraging one another, serving others, and gathering online to worship together. 

Let’s stay connected!
