COVID-19 - SOME 922 FAQ
How will everyone stay informed with the latest updates and announcements?
- This website will be regularly updated.
- Every 922 member with an email address will receive regular emails with updates and Jesus’ roots resources during these next three weeks and for as long as services are suspended.
The main office at both campuses will remain open to receive all phone calls, emails, and visitors.
All 922 pastors will continue to be available via phone, text, and email.
Timely video updates will be shared with the congregation in a variety of ways.
Certain demographics of 922’s membership will receive information via hard copies in the mail.
How can I continue to give my offerings?
First and most of all, we want you to know that we are so thankful for your gifts and blessed by the strong give root at 922!
Your regular offerings are vital in allowing us to meet our congregation’s needs at all times, but especially so in times like this.
What is the 922 plan for celebrating Holy Communion during this time when gatherings are suspended?
We are in difficult times as COVID-19 has changed our very way of life. We pray that this change will be short, but ultimately, we entrust ourselves to God knowing that his good and perfect will shall be done for our eternal good (Romans 8:28). In light of these things, our pastors and leaders have decided that we will not celebrate Holy Communion at either campus as long as in person worship services are suspended due to the current CDC and state guidelines. To be sure, this is temporary and your pastors and leaders will continue to evaluate this practice and all that we are facing spiritually and we will keep you informed when the current status for gatherings changes.

What if I or someone I know needs individual attention from a pastor?
Your pastors are as determined as ever to serve our 922 members, especially during this unusual time. Continue to reach out to them with any concerns, questions, or needs.
What about Starting Point, and Catechism class?
All individuals/families enrolled in Starting Point and Catechism instruction will be contacted separately from this message. In most cases, these classes will continue but in what manner we aren’t certain.
Should I panic?
Panic? No! Prepare? Yes! Our government and health care systems are generous gifts from God by which he cares for our lives. We show our trust in God by trusting the guidance given to us by individuals he himself has placed into these positions of authority. Continue to wash your hands, follow the guidelines, go about your business as best you can, and stay rooted (Gather on-line, Group in person or via regular texts, Grow in the Word daily, Give in ways that you can, keep your Go root going by letting people see Jesus in you). He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all ... has this and all things in His control. And remember he has you in his care and knows you by name. We’ll get through this together, and God will be glorified through it.
