Current Happenings

U P D A T E:   C O V I D - 1 9

 

There is no question that we’re living in interesting times. Although it may seem challenging, it actually offers a remarkable opportunity for the Church to stand out. Because the Word of God is our foundation, we become the anchors of peace, hope, and faith, as we extend His heart and influence to those around us.

Our Decision

As you may know, our state and federal governments have asked Americans to avoid gathering in groups ten or more in order to curtail the spread of the coronavirus. While we never respond in fear, we do have a responsibility to consider the situation as well as the recommendations that our governments are providing. We stand on the Word of God, but we are also aware that this virus is easily spread and is having an unprecedented impact on our health care industry and professionals. Understanding the overall impact, it’s necessary that we all take responsible measures to eradicate its influence.

With this, it is our decision to handle our Sunday services and School of Word & Worship in a new and different way for the time being. While we will not be gathering together here at the church, we’re excited to implement new ways to stay connected with you.

Sunday Messages: We are “live streaming” Sunday messages through Facebook at 10:30am. Afterwards, all messages will be post to our YouTube channel, livingfaithvideo; our website; and Spotify and Apple Podcasts under Living Faith Church.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can still watch and access the recordings:  Go to our website, livingbyfaith.com, scroll to the bottom and click the "f" icon which will take you to our Facebook page where you can watch live. A box will pop up asking you to join Facebook, but you can click the link that says "Not Now" at the bottom and it will take you back to our page.

School of Word & Worship: We are “live streaming” SOWW Chats on Facebook at 6:00pm, taking a short break, and then continuing live streaming the Wednesday teaching (currently the topic is Covenant). 

Other: We will also be providing a variety of “live streaming” chats and messages on social media throughout the week as well as communicating through phone calls and our e-blast system.

Please make sure you’re following us at:

• Facebook: Living Faith Church
• Instagram: livingfaithva
• YouTube: livingfaithvideo
• Spotify & Apple Podcasts: Living Faith Church

Our administrative office will remain open our normal business hours, and we are here for you. If, at any point, you begin to feel isolated, need prayer, or if you just need a friendly connection point and a good laugh, reach out to us. We are a body fitly joined together, and we walk in faith and victory through this. Join us as we’re believing this situation resolves quickly, that our government and professional leaders have wisdom in dealing with it, and supernatural peace overshadows everything.

Joining Living Faith Church
 

Having a church home and family is so important. It makes a huge of difference knowing that you are loved, you belong and you have people around you that genuinely care about you. If you’ve been coming to Living Faith and feel like this is supposed to become your church family, we’re thrilled and we’d love a chance to get together and talk. All you need to do is go to the bookstore and let them know you’d like to set up a meeting to explore partnership at the church.
