Dear Simpson Creek Family,
As pastors and deacons, we’re writing to bring you up to date on this unprecedented interruption in our congregation’s ministries.
We believe it is wisest for Simpson Creek to suspend all services, groups, and activities for the present. We will be evaluating this week by week. We are however doing some new things. We will be making use of widely available technology. We will continue to livestream Sunday morning messages. In addition, as pastors, we will be adding our current Bible studies and Sunday School lessons on our Facebook page and website. We’re also available for prayer and practical needs such as running errands for those who can’t get around.
Given current circumstances, we will plan to reschedule events such as the children’s Easter play, the AWANA Grand Prix, teacher training day, and women’s circles.
This is an opportune time for followers of Christ to keep the needs of others at the forefront of our attention and yet err on the side of caution and protection over our flock. God’s Word has given a clear direction for our conduct: to “never grow tired of doing good.” (Galatians 6:9)
In light of that, we are urging everyone to keep current in their financial support. Both the needs of our missionaries and the church will continue. We have been advised by our online giving agency, Vanco, that a new option for over-the-phone giving is available at: 800-675-7430. This is in addition to our normal online giving, drop-off, and mailing options to the church office. It is also important to continue to support those who may have special needs or are not able to get necessary items. Please let us know if you or someone needs assistance. If you would like to donate items to the Clarksburg Mission or Shepherds Corner, you may drop them off during normal office hours.
The vast majority of our communication will be online. So please check our Facebook page and website often. You may also call the pastors anytime or call the church office.
This is a moment in history for the church to be remembered for its conduct and concern for one another and the communities where we live.
We love you and are praying for you.
Pastors Mike, Ben, and Josh
