LATEST UPDATES: COVID-19 Plans & Adjustments
Updated May 28, 2020
Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic affecting daily life in so many ways, we want to remain connected with you, and continue in our efforts to fulfill the mission Jesus called us to - leading people to a growing relationship with Jesus: locally, regionally, and globally. Below are details on how we will continue to reach up, reach in, and reach out during this season.
REACHING UP IN WORSHIP
Our leadership team continues to monitor the latest information available, regarding COVID-19 and the communities where our campuses are located. Although we are convinced that it’s not yet time to fully open for in-person gatherings, we do plan to offer Communion and Prayer at each of our campuses next Sunday, June 7th. What this means is that we will still gather online on Sunday morning to worship and study God’s Word, but we would also love for many of you to join us in person for Communion and Prayer on Sunday afternoon. We have a plan in place that will provide a safe and sanitary experience, including the handling of your sealed communion elements. We will continue to encourage the elderly and those who are immune-suppressed to remain at home. Capacity will be very limited, so everyone who would like to attend must RSVP in advance. (RSVP will be active Sunday, May 31 at 12:00P, CST.)
During this season, regardless of how our plans progress with meeting in person, we will continue to provide a well-crafted online broadcast, just for you! This can be found through our website at live.3circlechurch.com, our “3Circle Church” YouTube channel, or our “3Circle Church” Facebook page. Broadcast times on Sundays are 8:00/9:00/10:00/11:00A (CST). The recording is also available “on demand” through our “3Circle Church” Facebook page, beginning Sunday afternoon.
3CIRCLE JR. AND 3CIRCLE KIDS
We will continue to partner with you, as parents, providing you with engaging, age-specific content to encourage spiritual growth and continued joy for your children during this season. To do this, we are filming weekly videos, including live teaching and many other supportive elements (even games!). We will also supply you with printable activity materials, to use at home. For access to all of this, please click your campus name in the “Family Ministries” section at the bottom of this page.
We are committed to keeping students connected during this season - to God, to each other, and to the local church. To accomplish this, we are filming weekly videos with teaching and discussion questions, encouraging continued small group interaction through video chat platforms, and providing additional resources for growth and engagement. For access to all of this, please click your campus name in the “Family Ministries” section at the bottom of this page.
WEEK NIGHT ACTIVITIES
Celebrate Recovery is not currently meeting in person. However, we are still here for you! Weekly chat groups are active, and great content is being created and shared weekly. Want more info? Have questions or prayer requests? Reach out by emailing CR@3circlechurch.com.
Most other in-person gatherings and activities are not currently meeting in person. Check back here for further updates.
We encourage you to continue to partner with us in faithful and generous financial giving, as we shoulder the load together to continue our mission to reach and serve the world around us. To give online, go to 3circlechurch.com/give, where you can set-up a one-time or recurring gift. (See below for info on our COVID-19 Special Offering, as well).
REACHING IN TO GROW
Some of our adult small groups are now meeting in person, adhering to social distancing measures, while others continue to meet only online, through video chat platforms. This time together allows for continued community and biblical discussion. If you are not yet a part of a small group, and would like to join one of our virtual groups, click here.
We are here to help you! Although our physical offices are currently closed to the public, please reach out to us by emailing email@example.com, or by calling 251-990-3112, and leaving a message.
REACHING OUT TO SERVE + SHARE
COVID-19 SPECIAL OFFERING
During this time the church is setting aside some of its resources to care for those impacted economically by COVID-19. We are also asking you to be the hands and feet of Christ during this uncertain time, by making a donation to our COVID-19 special offering. Go to 3circlechurch.com/give, and as you give your regular tithes and offerings, please prayerfully consider giving towards this special offering.
Please continue to spread the word about our efforts through 3Circle Helps, meeting specific, tangible needs for those who are elderly, sick, disabled, or otherwise home-bound. For those in need, text ASSISTANCE to 97000 from a cell phone, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope Center is a ministry of 3Circle Church in Fairhope, offering professional medical care, dental care, and counseling services, at low costs. The Hope Center will continue to see existing patients during this season, dependent upon volunteer staffing. If you would like to schedule an appointment, or would like to volunteer at the Hope Center, please call 251-445-2273.
