Dear New Song family,

Please read this entire message for an important update from the elders.

Good news… you will not have to wear a mask to service this Sunday.

In Titus 3:1-2 Paul advises us: Remind them to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, to malign no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing every consideration for all men.

This week all Ohio counties where our New Song members reside entered the risk level three category of public health concern. The directives at this level are:

  • Decrease in-person interactions with others.
  • Consider necessary travel only.
  • Limit attending gatherings of any number.

While religious organizations are exempt from this requirement, the elders of New Song believe it is in the best interest of our members and community to suspend in-person gatherings until further notice. This includes the following:

  • Sunday morning services effective this Sunday, July 19th
  • Life group meetings
  • The church picnic on July 26th

We will return to the Zoom meeting format for Sunday mornings, life groups, prayer meetings, and youth meetings. Instructions to join are at https://newsong.family/live.

The women’s ministry outing Friday evening and the men’s ministry outreach scheduled for Saturday morning will continue as planned. Please support those events.

This was a difficult decision, and we recognize how difficult it is to remain physically apart. I (Ashley) am an extrovert, a hugger, a people person, and I terribly miss seeing you all. This is difficult for all of us. However, as Paul states in the verse above we are to be ready for every good work while we honor the authorities God has placed over us. Please continue to pray for our nation and reach out to one another and your neighbors. Pray that God will shake our nation and our own hearts to bring us closer to Him.

If you know New Song attenders without access to email or text messages please help us communicate this to them.

Much love,

Ashley & Jack

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.  2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV

Dearly beloved of New Song,

This evening the church board met to discuss whether to meet during the corona virus outbreak. The governor of Ohio has specifically not banned religious gatherings, but has respectfully asked that churches meet remotely.

Out of respect for the authorities and doing what is right in the eyes of men (Romans 12:17), New Song Community Church will suspend all meetings effective immediately through Friday, April 3rd. This is subject to change based on the governor’s future directives.

This suspension of meetings includes:

  • Sunday services suspended beginning this Sunday
  • Saturday’s Communication Toolbox Workshop
  • Life groups
  • Worship team Saturday gathering
  • Prayer open house
  • Youth meeting

During this time the elders will remain in contact via email and text. We will provide a video message on the church web site each Sunday at 10AM (https://newsong.family). Please watch these for encouragement from the pastors.

If you are looking for some extra spiritual nourishment feel free to check out these additional resources:

We are the body of Christ. Please call and check on one another during this time. Keep in touch with your life group members and encourage one another. Jack and Ashley are available to talk and/or meet individually during this time. Their contact information is below.

Safe in the Father’s arms,

Jack & Ashley
