 Update & Encouragement- Drayton Valley Church of God

March 27, 2020


Greetings, everyone! Please check out the posted video and the following information so that you can be prepared to join together on Sunday morning! As you will hear in the video update, I was encouraged by a memory from my childhood- reciting the last line of the Star Trek opening monologue “To boldly go where noone has gone before!”

God has not given us a spirit of fear, but rather He equips us with love, and power and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7). Indeed, life in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic is uncertain, but God equips us to move boldly into the unknown. He is our Peace in a world of fear, our Hope in uncertainty. To recap a bit more of the video update, we need to consider 3 things to be the Church that boldly goes where we’ve never been before:

  1. Count on God. He is in full control, and we need to be diligent in prayer and committed to reading and learning from scripture.

  2. Abandon the notion that the church is a building, and embrace that the Church is made up of people who seek God and serve God & others in love.

  3. Be flexible as we look for new opportunities and turn to different methods and platforms to gather together.


So here is where we’re starting to do things differently:

  1. Moving to an online platform called ZOOM to be able to connect via video, audio, and call-in features. We’re starting with Sunday Morning service and Youth group meetings.

(more details below)

  1. Limited church office hours: The office is open to drop off Tithes & Offerings on Tuesdays from 10:30am-12pm and Thursdays from 1-2:30pm

  2. Increased communication, from phone calls & texts & video chats to occasional video updates, as well as Facebook, Website, and Email updates. Be encouraged also to increase your communication with each other during this time. And please call or email the church if you have any questions or needs that we can help with.
