OUR ONLINE CHURCH EXPERIENCE

ZION CHURCH UPDATES ON CORONAVIRUS

**LIVE UPDATES**

Our Sunday Services will not be held at Shorecliffs Middle School until further notice.

Life Groups and midweek gatherings are all moving to virtual platforms.

We will continue to gather online | Sundays 10am

As our world grapples with how to handle the evolving coronavirus pandemic, we know that your heart is being bombarded with many different messages. Our prayer is that you feel supported and strengthened in this time by your church family. 

NEED HELP?
‍‍
If at any point over the next few weeks you are in need of assistance pertaining to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Zion is here to help! Whether it is going to the store on your behalf, picking up a prescription, or connecting in prayer, we’d like to know.

Please connect with us here to provide us with information on how Zion can help you. Your request will be reviewed immediately and we will contact you with more information.

HERE’S WHAT WE’RE DOING AS A CHURCH STAFF

 

TRUSTING GOD
 

We're choosing to trust in the power of God and receiving the peace of God instead of living in a state of panic. No matter how challenging circumstances get, the Lord remains our refuge and strength, “an ever-present help in trouble” (Ps. 46:1). To trust in the Lord amid trouble is to experience and bear witness to the power of Christ. 

 

PRAYING
 

We must pray for the sick and the scared, for public health officials, for doctors and nurses, for researchers, and for caregivers. We believe prayer has power, so we seek help from the Lord.

 

STAYING INFORMED
 

The media is inundated with daily updates and it’s impossible to read, absorb and respond to every news report, Tweet, or latest rumor. We’re following a reliable list of information for educational, planning and management purposes.
 

CDC on COVID-19: The US Center for Disease Control’s up-to-date resources on coronavirus.

 

CDC Resources for Community and Faith-Based Organizations: The CDC has also created resources specifically for faith-based organizations to respond to influenza pandemic, which are applicable in this situation. As a church, we’re implementing this guidance. 

 

Managing Anxiety Around Coronavirus Coverage: The American Psychological Association created this resource to help manage anxiety around coverage of COVID-19.

 

Addressing Mental Health Issues: This resource from the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Network provides guidelines for addressing mental health issues that may arise, and offers advice for messaging, including among children, older adults, people with disabilities, and those in quarantine. 


 

PREPARING

 

As a staff, we're communicating with our Advisory Team regularly to review all of our efforts in response to COVID-19.

 

We’re in direct communication with local public health officials and school district administration, staying informed of community updates.

 

We’re adjusting our weekend services to be solely online until further notice.

 

Life Groups and midweek gatherings have all moved to virtual platforms.

 

We’re determining the best ways to help those who are affected most by this crisis.

 

 

 

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

 


Pray for our community and those directly affected by COVID-19. Pray for the health care workers that are treating the sick and those public health administrators making difficult decisions. Pray that God would protect our community from further spread of the virus.

Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith, patience and prudence. We can demonstrate for the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.

Our team is actively working with our local partners to serve families in Orange County. As developments continue to evolve, we will be updating our community on how they can take action and serve others. Check back for live updates.

Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently. Avoid contact with the sick. Stay home from public functions if you’re sick.

Share our online messages with those who need hope in this time of crisis.
