COVID-19 Response

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. 
John 14:27

The pastors and staff at Ashland Christian Fellowship are taking the current pandemic of COVID-19 seriously.  We continue to discuss safety measures for keeping those who attend the church safe, as well as ways we can serve those in the congregation and community who will be affected by this virus and/or the circumstances arising from the containment. 

Services

 We are confident that God has this situation under control, but we also want to be mindful of our church body and our community at this time.  We will continue to broadcast our Sunday service through our LIVESTREAM channel on Sunday morning, as well as our Wednesday evening service.  There will be no gatherings at the church campus for the time being.

We are grateful for the technology that allows us to continue worshiping together! Now that restrictions have loosened, we encourage you to gather your family, friends, and neighbors and tune in Sunday and Wednesday at our usual service time.  We also encourage you to download Spotify as we release more podcasts weekly.  

If you have children in our children's programs, you may also join our private facebook group providing resources, live teachings, Bible stories, and activities.  Middle and high school groups continue to meet virtually each week. There's also opportunity to connect with Women's Ministry via virtual meetings, and our Saturday morning prayer group continues to meet via Zoom, as well.  If you'd like more information on any of these opportunities, just fill out a Connect Card and let us know.  

We are taking steps at this time to deep clean and sanitize the church campus in preparation for coming together again when it is safe to do so.  We'll let you know when that happens.

Serving

As a staff, we are prayerfully considering how we can be the hands and feet of Jesus during this crisis.  We know there are many who need to stay in their homes for their health and safety.  As a result, if you are healthy and not at risk for serious illness, please consider reaching out to elderly or at-risk neighbors, co-workers, or acquaintances who would benefit from a grocery drop-off, errands, or friendly phone conversation.
 
Likewise, we plan to reach out to those in the congregation who may need this kind of assistance, as well.  If you would like to be available to serve in this way, please take a moment to fill out a Connect Card and let us know.

If you are someone who could use this kind of assistance, please let us know, as well by filling out a Connect Card.

We will be exploring other ways we can serve the community as many face struggles with loss of hourly pay, meals & assistance through canceled school programs, etc.  

We continue to be a church who are the hands and feet of Jesus.  We want to love those in the community and our church body.  
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
