COVID-19 UPDATES (updated 2/22/21)
- A small number of us are now gathering on Sunday mornings in the home of Deacon John. These 10:30am services are live streamed on the church's Facebook page. We hope to regather in a public setting when the situation in our region leads to the probability of higher attendance. If you are interested in attending in person, please send us a message ahead of time so we can accommodate your visit.
- Giving is still crucial as we continue to assist those in need. Our deacon is unpaid and we have no overhead since we are not renting space at the moment. This means that 100% of your donations are going straight to helping families in need.
- If you need prayer, counseling, financial help, or if your emotional health is failing because you have no company or community, contact us.
We are an intentionally multicultural and multigenerational community of friends who meet weekly, striving to live out Acts 2:42-44 in a 21st century context.
They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common.
(Acts 2:42-44, ESV)
A Message from Deacon John
The pandemic is affecting us all in different ways. If there is anything a member of my parish can do to make your life easier, please reach out to us through our contact page.
We know it can be hard to imagine being healthy again when you're so sick. Four of the five members of my church planting core group, myself, have contracted and recovered from COVID-19, and we all experienced that feeling. However, the feeling proved untrue. We are surviving and thriving. Keep the faith!
We believe the church is about much more than what we do on Sundays, hence why we use "intentional community" to describe ourselves. Thus, we've taken several months to heal and build our core community, but we are getting ready to relaunch public worship in January. Now that the vaccine is coming, there is even more evidence that there's light at the end of this tunnel.
We're in this together. We are your friends.
The Rev'd John Goodman II,
Deacon, Christ Church RGV
