COVID-19  Shepherds' Response

Last Updated Thursday, March 19, 2020




The Lord only gives us one day at a time and only God knows what each one day will bring. Today is the day that we have been given. Even though it is indeed an unusual time for our Homewood family as well as the world, “…let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118.


COVID-19 is creating a very unique year. Doctors are informing us of the effects and making recommendations for our health wellbeing. Our government is making decisions and giving directives to be followed to assist in protecting our wellbeing. Your Shepherds are listening to these instructions and are following the directions that have been given. Here is some of what this means.


Effective immediately all gatherings will be suspended for an indefinite period. For our Sunday worship time we will be offering the live stream option only. To maintain the 10 and under rule, no more than 10 will be allowed during the Live Stream recording.  


In spite of all these changes there is much that we as a church family can do to support and encourage each other. To help with this we have created a COVID-19 RESPONSE site on our webpage. At this site you will be able to find information like how to make your own communion bread or how to access our social media platforms and stay connected. We are committed to doing our best to create content that will inform, uplift, encourage, and remain connected as a church family. 


Also, this is a great opportunity to focus on caring for friends, neighbors, and coworkers. All of us are being impacted in various ways. During this time of abnormality, consider safe engagement tactics that are beyond the normal to meet this opportunity to serve others.


Let us continue to ask and encourage each of you to pray. We have a marvelous opportunity to speak in terms of our hope and confidence in God through this season. 


God is still in control, 

Your Shepherds
