In the coming weeks we will all be altering our ways of living in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This does not exclude RADIUS Church. Our staff and elders are working to find ways to best care for our church and continue to spread the messages of Jesus.
In this week’s RADIUS [extended cut] podcast, Russell and John discuss this past Sunday. Specifically they address RADIUS’ leadership’s decision-making process: to close down our physical services and adopt an online-only approach to church for the near future. They also discuss God’s activity in the world right now and how we believers can capitalize on the despair that seems to reign by proclaiming hope in Jesus.
They also talk about the plan going forward for RADIUS Church as we begin to live in a ‘new normal’. You can watch below or listen to the podcast here. Scroll down for a recap of what they discussed.
Live streaming Services – For at least the next 3 weeks we will not host services at our campuses on Sunday morning or Thursday evening. We will deliver service content via video at 9, 10 and 11am on Sunday morning. We will be adding worship to these services. This is a unique opportunity for us to deepen our faith and be the body even if we are not together.
Buildings – All RADIUS Church buildings are closed. This includes buildings used for small groups or other meetings. Our church staff is still working and available so feel free to reach out to your campus pastors.
Small Groups – RADIUS small groups will not meet this week. We are working on a virtual option and will have an update soon!
RADIUS Kids – Our desire is that we will be able to give parents the content that our kids are learning at RADIUS. We will have a landing page soon with information and tools. This is another unique opportunity to teach your kids about Jesus.
RADIUS Students – There will be no official RADIUS Student activities until further notice. We are working on a way to keep our students connected, similar to groups, in a healthy way.
As our schedules have slowed and we are spending more time at home, our prayer is that you will all use this time to gather around the table and love your radius. Our God has been faithful in the past. He is faithful today and He will be faithful in the future.
