SUNDAY'S ONLINE SERVICE
SUNDAY’S ONLINE SERVICE: 3-22-20
Good morning Bear Valley Church and welcome to our Sunday online experience!
I know that there are some other really great livestream services out there from some bigger churches or maybe your favorite nationally known pastor, and I definitely support you enjoying those experiences because the body of Christ is so much bigger than the corner we’re normally sitting in on Sunday morning. But today, I just wanted to offer you something a little bit more interactive and a little bit more intimate. I hope this time will, one, draw you closer to the people around you, and then more importantly, draw you closer to our Heavenly Father this morning.
And so, let me set this up for you this morning. Down below, you’ll see four songs that Pastor Chris and I have chosen for you this morning. But rather than just listening and trying to sing along with them on your own, I’m going to give you specific times to listen to each specific song throughout our experience this morning.
And so, just sit back and follow along this morning. Let this be a time of encouragement, a time of worship, and a time of refilling and recharging for the week to come. I trust that if you truly engage it, this will be a spiritually rich time for you!
May God richly bless you!

Please prayerfully consider giving during this season. Seasons like this shouldn’t stall our ministry, it should fuel it! In Acts 4, under intense circumstances, the church actually grew! In Acts 8, the church was forced to scatter, and yet again, the church actually grew because God’s word went forward!
We have an incredible opportunity to shine light in our community. But the real work is still coming ahead! That’s why we need to ensure that churches everywhere are not only stay strong through this but are also built up and prepared for the incredible volume of needs that are going to be coming on the other side of this.
Just watch what an amazing God can do through ordinary people during dark times!
