May you be made strong with all the strength which comes from his glorious power, so that you may be able to endure everything with patience.

July 26 update, survey request from Neil Dunnavant
Our Session met last week and made decisions about church activities for the next couple of months. While we all are eager to worship together again, we will continue to be livestream only for several more weeks. Please know that much work is going in in preparation — pews are being marked for safe seating, every room evaluated for safe maximum occupancy, and more. Our leadership will continue to closely monitor the situation and will adapt when able.
It will help us to know what you are thinking and feeling as we move forward. We have put together a survey with a few key questions. Please take a moment to fill it out. If you can do so by August 7, that will be very helpful. Read more.
June 19 update from Neil Dunnavant
It is both easy and hard to believe we have been dealing with the coronavirus pandemic for three months now. I thank you all very much for your patience and generosity. The church is in good shape financially, and we have a generous fund to help our friends and neighbors through this crisis.
The church’s COVID-19 Task Force continues to monitor our community’s status and our ability to minister safely. This week the task force recommended, and Session approved, that our campus remain closed except for essential activities through mid-August. It is recommended that funerals be 25 or less. Full letter.
COVID-19 Task Force
Session has approved a COVID-19 Task Force made up of staff members, several committee chairs, and members who are medical professionals. The task force has four work teams focused on: funerals; technical equipment to enhance live streaming; worship content and variety; and safety protocols for our campus and congregation. Please pray for this task force as they are researching, discussing, and planning at this time.
Our financial needs continue even as our doors remain closed. Please mail checks to 617 N. Elm St., Greensboro, NC 27401. You can also give online here, or download and use the SecureGive mobile app for Apple iOS | Android.
