Our Heart for this Season
As we’ve been gathering information, talking with Purdue authorities, and processing a variety of emotions, we have sought to prayerfully discern the will of Christ in this season and increasingly rely upon Him. Our heart is that Christ-centered love would be our guiding motivation. This invites the question, “What does love require?” As a church community, we believe love requires that we consider those who are at-risk and be willing to sacrifice our own opinions and comforts for the well-being of others.
God is at work in this pivotal cultural moment, and He does not waste anything. There will be good, bad, and awkward moments, but if we can get past our grief, discomfort, and desire to cling to prior normalcy, we can begin to notice God’s invitation to be transformed by His grace. This will likely continue to be a wildly strange journey, but we have a God who knows, who sees, who loves, and who goes with us.
Following Purdue’s Lead
With reliance on Jesus as our framework for decision-making, we are developing flexible plans that honor the University by adhering to their policies laid out in the Protect Purdue Plan.
Changes to Sunday Worship Services
The purpose of our Sunday gatherings has not changed. We still seek to encounter Jesus through His Word, prayer, worship, and one another. However, protocols will limit the number of people we can gather and the precautions that are in place. We still intend to worship together through live streams and encourage you to gather with roommates or a small group of friends. Live-streamed services will begin at 10:30am Sunday mornings on our YouTube channel. Visit our home page for weekly updates about Sunday services.
