In this unique season of “social distancing” your church may or may not be meeting in a physical place. As a pastor, a pastor’s kid, and a child of the Church here are a few things that you can do in this season to help your church and pastor:
Keep connected — Even if you are unable to gather as a congregation for a while you can still stay in touch. Send a message, call, check in on, reach out, grab a coffee. Don’t just assume it’s just the leaders jobs to do so. We are all responsible to care for one an another.
Keep supporting — Offer to help in this season. If your church offers online giving options consider using it — if not, mail it in or arrange dropping it off at the offices. Make sure to keep supporting financially. There are still costs of operations, mortgages, utilities, staffing, missionaries etc depending on our generosity. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
Keep the faith — Don’t be afraid. Stay strong. Pray big prayers. Allow God’s peace to rule in your heart. Know that God is with you and for you and your family!
(2 Timothy 1:7)
