MBA Zoom Church Preparedness Call #3

MBA Zoom Church Preparedness Call #3

COVID-19 and the Church
Strategy Update

This Zoom call included pastors and leaders in Metrolina who wanted to participate in a discussion on how we can best be the church through these days of the COVID-19 crisis. It is time to seriously decide how God would have us to engage our neighbors and communities with the faith, hope, and love of Jesus, with the seriousness of this crisis growing daily. We must be ready to BE the church, doing all that we can do to show our communities, city and region that we love God and we love them.

Attendees shared ideas on how a church or ministry can be praying, caring and sharing in the days ahead.

During the discussion, guest leaders gave input as we discussed these topics and continue to learn together how God is leading us into the days ahead. Please pray that God will prepare us to say what we need to say tomorrow and in the coming days for His glory and our neighbors’ good.

A group of Metrolina pastors and leaders discussing best practices in response to the COVID-19 crisis, including how to live stream worship, using Zoom calls for group meetings, and more. This call is held after Mecklenburg County announced that Stay At Home measures will be taken beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 26th.
