3/13/20 COVID-19 Update: A Message from Pastor Mike

Family, 

Thank you for your prayerful patience as we have prayed and sought wisdom from the Lord while paying attention to those who are thinking through public safety in the face of the coronavirus. At this time, in light of the directive from our Governor and Mayor, we believe it is most wise for us to suspend all onsite gatherings for our church through at least the end of March. You can learn more about how we arrived at this decision by watching the video above.

While we will not be able to gather in person through at least the end of March, we encourage you to participate with us in worship and the hearing of God’s Word online at 9:00 a.m., beginning this Sunday, March 15 at kingsharbor.org/watch (Worship services will be posted at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings and will be available to watch at any time after). We are going to pause our sermon series in the book of Acts and we will be opening God’s Word for encouragement and trust in the Lord in the face of fear. We pray that these messages will be transformative for you, but also a way to share the Gospel with those in your life, who may be experiencing a similar sense of worry and anxiety in this season.

While we will continue to share more information in the coming days about ministry operations at King's Harbor Church, we wanted to briefly outline some next steps for you below as well as specific points of contact for additional questions.
