VENUE CHURCH COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Venue Church Family,

 

In alignment with our governors and county officials request, request as well as the advice of healthcare specialists, we have decided to temporarily suspend all of our physical gatherings at Venue Church and move to a live, online church model. It is important during this time to remain calm and know that we are taking preventative measures to lessen the impact of COVID-19. These precautions are being put in place nationally to help manage the fixed nature of our healthcare system capacity. This decision is also a reflection of our desire to be “good neighbors” and citizens of the community around us.

At this time, we are closing our Steamboat and Hayden Campuses until further notice. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the State of Colorado, Routt County, and the Center for Disease Control for how best to respond to the developing situation.

While our locations may be closed for the time being, church is still happening! We understand this can be an unsettling time, and it’s in times like these that we are so grateful for our online church experience and the relationships that we have within our Groups. Please reach out to your Group and people you know to offer your support, encouragement, and prayer! Our hope is that our community would gather online and find other encouraging ways to connect even when it’s difficult to gather in large spaces and settings like we are used to.

Live, online services will continue to happen every at 10:00AM[MST] and can be accessed by clicking on the IN-home, ON-line Church image, on the home page. We encourage you to watch with your family and share with friends so that they can join in too. This is also a massive opportunity to bring the Presence of God right into their homes at a time when people are searching for hope. In addition to our online services, a vKids is experience in updated every week so that you can lead your children at home as well and continue their growth in the Lord. 

On our website there are multiple resources that we want to encourage you to use, including a live prayer meeting every morning, hosted by Radiant Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan. These prayer meetings are from 8:00-9:00AM[EST], Monday through Thursday and they keep them up so we can join them at any time during the day. This is an excellent way for you and your family to start your day by unifying with our extended Radiant Church Family in prayer -- crying out to God for a breakthrough. We’ll be praying for faith to arise and continued health over our community, nation, and government as we’re all going through this unprecedented time. In Isaiah 60, God calls us to Arise, Shine, for our light has come. This is a perfect opportunity for us to help provide hope and healing to our community.  We hope that you’re able to make these powerful times of online prayer meetings a part of your family’s morning, as well as join us for our IN-Home, ON-Line service each weekend. We’re so grateful for technology that allows us to continue to have church online and know that God will still meet us as we worship together!
