Biblical Wisdom for Unsettling Times

Would you agree that we are living in unusually unsettling times?

Now more than ever, we need to turn to the Lord.  We need God’s wisdom and God’s power to help us be faithful followers of Jesus.

We need to pray earnestly for those in leadership at every level of our government and for the honorable discharge of our own responsibilities as Christian citizens.

So, I hope you will make it a priority to join us for worship — either in person or online — this Sunday, January 10.

Our normal four-service schedule will resume with traditional worship at 8:30 a.m. in the Chapel, blended worship at 9:15 and 11:00 a.m. in the Worship Center, and contemporary worship at 11:00 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Gym.  You may make your reservations here.

As usual, the livestream will continue at 11:00 a.m. on our church website, Facebook, and YouTube.

I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Ingleside Pandemic Protocols

As you may know, we have been back meeting for in-person, on-campus worship since Sunday, June 14.

By the Lord’s grace, thus far we have not had an Ingleside-related outbreak of COVID-19.

So, as the uptick in coronavirus cases continues in our region, let’s renew our commitment to the protocols that have enabled us to gather safely.

  • First, if you have symptoms, have been exposed, or are awaiting test results, please stay home and worship by livestream. Others will appreciate your caution.
  • Second, we always practice social distancing. Attendance at every service is limited to 25% of capacity, and reservations are required.  Check-in is touchless, and we sit every other row.
  • Third, face coverings are strongly encouraged. Unless you are leading on the platform, we strongly encourage face coverings throughout the service – especially during the singing.

As we practice these protocols, we are honoring our governing authorities, we are loving our neighbors, and we are taking the precautions that will enable as many of us as possible to continue to meet in-person week by week.

Of course, if your age or health condition suggests that it is wisest and best to continue to worship on the livestream, please do so with my encouragement and blessing.

I’m really grateful for your partnership in the gospel during these unusual days, and I look forward to seeing you in worship on Sunday – either in-person or on the livestream!

Your Pastor and Friend,
