Coronavirus Update from Pastor Josh
The Church is not the building, WE are the Church and our mission is to make Jesus Lord over Huntington, the Tri-State, the Nation and the World! There’s never been a greater opportunity to be the Church than what we are facing right now with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. I want to remind you that the Holy Spirit is never caught off guard when a crisis hits! We are anointed, we are equipped, and we are ready to continue living life by faith and sharing the love of God throughout the Tri-State. With recent updates shared by the President, our church leadership has determined it a wise decision to comply according to Romans 13:1-5 and follow the 15-day Coronavirus guideline. For the next 2 weeks, we will not be having worship services at our physical address. Instead, we encourage you to join us for My New Life at Home! We will be hosting live, online and streaming services thru March 29.
Hebrews 20:24-25 tells us to consider ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. To not neglect meeting together but encourage one another. I’m so thankful for the technology we have available that will allow us to continue to worship together, just from home. The Church isn’t closed, just our buildings! We don’t retreat, we advance! Jesus WILL be glorified!
For now, we are postponing the following events: Seniors Bible Study, Celebrate Recovery, Campus Flood, and the I Am Bible Study. Follow us online for updates concerning these large group events. Below, you will find a helpful and complete guide of our My New Life at Home service schedule, postponed events and instruction. We didn’t leave out your kids! We have also prepared Bible Studies, lessons and videos for your entire family!

We will also be hosting a live Prayer Break on Tuesday, March 24 at 1pm and a Living Room Worship Break on Thursday, March 26 at 1pm. We will randomly hop online for a devotional, prayer requests and for fun! So, stay connected! Treat these worship experiences the same way you would if you were physically here! Turn up the volume, sing loud, clap and raise your hands, have a worship dance party with your kids, take notes and share what God is doing!
We will have leaders and Elders moderating each live experience for prayer requests and assistance. Our New Life Students Bible Study and Lessons can be found at @newlifestudentswv, on Instagram, Facebook and TikTok. Our Club New Life Kids have a special Youtube Channel youtube.com/clubnlkwv as well as Instagram and Facebook pages for the parents @clubnewlifekids.

Diapers (any size)
