Notice About Coronavirus
Hello, Bridgetown Family!
With Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported in the greater Portland area, local officials have placed a restriction on public gatherings for the next four weeks, limiting attendance to 250 people. While the virus is really not dangerous to the vast majority of our church, it is very dangerous to some and we want to care for the vulnerable, which in this case, is the elderly and those with underlying health conditions. This is not out of fear, but out of love.
We are cancelling our Sunday gatherings, but we are not cancelling church.
As we say all the time, church is not a building, or an event, it is a people. So we are running an initiative called “House to House,” based on the line from Acts 2, where the first followers of Jesus would gather in larger groups at the temple on sabbath, and then in smaller groups in homes around a table throughout the week.
This Sunday we invite you to gather with your Bridgetown Community, open your home to family and friends, and be the church. We are preparing an outline for you to follow, with a teaching from our team available on video and audio.
“House to House” coming soon.
Be sure to follow along for updates about small events throughout the week as the situation continues to develop. In the weeks ahead, may we follow the way of love as we seek to be a non-anxious presence in a cultural moment of anxiety, and to love and care for those in our community.
Let us know if you have any questions or need any help.
