    Join in for the message series, Six Feet Apart.

    Due to the concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus, we will not be gathering at campuses this weekend but will instead stay connected through the Mountain Online service. Experience worship music, the message, and a special kids program online at the service times below. Be sure to share the link below on social media, let friends and family know you are watching and invite them to experience it with you!

    The Coronavirus has disrupted everything – and not just our life rhythms, schools, jobs, and the economy – it’s instilled more fear and uncertainty than we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes. It’s shaken us to the core. As a result, so many today are not just searching for toilet paper; we’re searching for meaning, for answers, for hope. This series of messages will wrestle with some of the toughest questions we’re facing right now because of COVID-19. Why is this happening? How do we make sense of all the suffering? How do we find hope? Where’s God in all of it? What exactly does Christianity teach and what difference does it make right now? No one’s interested in the party-line, simplistic, “Sunday School” answers. Even though we have to keep six feet apart right now, let's come together for an important conversation to help us find our way when life doesn’t make sense.

    For every case of COVID in MD, respond with an act of love!

    This graph cannot be viewed using Microsoft Edge, please use a different browser to view the graph.

     

    Right now, there are over 35,000 cases of Coronavirus in Maryland. We want to match or surpass that number in acts of love by June 30. Let's unleash a deliberate act of love in Jesus' name! We can match that virus one for one by making love go viral! So everyone needs to participate! We can do it! 
     
    Here’s how it works. Listed below are some important acts of love we can do that will make a difference. Let's use those negative letters C-O-V-I-D and turn them into something positive.

    • C - Celebrate a graduate by “adopting a senior.”

      (Have a graduate that you would like us to celebrate? Let us know!)

    • O - Offer to help someone with a financial need (help someone with rent or groceries or some essential cost).  

    • V - Volunteer to:

      • Sponsor a meal for Everyday Heroes and families in need. 
      • Write a note of encouragement to a healthcare worker or a patient.
      • Deliver food to those in need (to a neighbor or Meals on Wheels).
      • Donate everyday essentials to The EPICENTER like paper products, diapers and cleaning supplies to distribute to those in need.

        The EPICENTER at Edgewood
        1918 Pulaski Highway
        Edgewood, MD 21040
         
    • I -  Intentionally pray for others including joining a Zoom prayer call any weekday from 12-12:30 PM. 

    • D - Dream up your own act of love.

Students all over the community will join and watch a YouTube Premiere Video together from the Mountain Students Channel and then jump into digital small groups from there. Even if your student doesn’t have a group, there will be a group ready for them because this is for EVERYONE.

    6 Feet Apart
    Video Podcast Show Notes

    Welcome to the Six Feet Apart podcast - a conversation designed to help us find our way when answers seem out of reach and life doesn’t make sense.

    The Coronavirus has resulted in the greatest disruption that many of us have ever experienced. And while we’re trying our best to keep living and learning and working and staying six feet apart from everyone, we’ve got some serious questions that are hard to get a handle on.

    • Why is this happening?
    • How do we make sense of it?
    • What does it mean?
    • Is there any hope?
    • Where’s God in all of it?

    Answers seem to be at a distance, and our daily experience grinds against many of our beliefs and expectations. It’s disorienting, and we’re skeptical. So where do we go from here? Even though we have to keep six feet apart, let’s come together on Facebook and Youtube for a conversation designed to help us find our way when answers seem out of reach and life doesn’t make sense.
