ELDER update - March 19, 2020

Dear EPC family,

As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, we do so with hope and trust in the sovereign God who does as he pleases (Psalm 115:3). Our present circumstances have not caught him off guard, nor is he rubbing his head trying to figure out what to do. God is in control. He is active. He is good; therefore, we can be those who combat fear with faith (Mark 5:36). Faith in the God who works all things according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11).

We as elders have been praying and wrestling through the most recent recommendations given at the National level, but more importantly the Local level. In light of the recommendations, we think it prudent to live-stream our Sunday corporate worship services until further notice. This is not an easy decision given the mandate the Bible gives for us to meet together and the encouragement that comes from the gathered congregation (Hebrews 10:25). However, we want to use the technological means available to us in an effort to provide weekly encouragements to you and your family as we walk through this season. May God's word continue to be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path (Psalm 119:105).

As we navigate the upcoming weeks, please keep the following in mind:

Sunday services at East Point Church will be live-streamed for the near future. Join us online as Pastor Carter begins a new series of messages on Psalms for the Season at 10:30 on Sunday morning. The live stream can be accessed HERE

The elders and deacons will be working to keep in touch with the families of East Point Church. If you are in need of anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to the church. We are here to help and encourage one another in what can be discouraging times.

Make sure you are checking your emails. Communication and encouragement will be frequent and important these days.

If you have the opportunity, we encourage you to stay in touch with one another. Get together when you can. Send messages, make phone calls, and keep in touch with your brothers and sisters. Nothing is more important than reassuring each other that we are not alone.
