Dear Centerstage Church family,
These are unprecedented times. Never before in my lifetime have church services been cancelled. I have been at church Sunday Services over 50 times a year for 65 years. Thats a lot of regularity.
In an effort to maintain as much normalcy as possible, we are moving as much ministry as is possible to an online platform. This is a work in progress, so be patient with us. Whether you are a year-round worshipper, winter worshipper, or out-of-town friend of Centerstage Church, we want to be here for you.
The church remains the church. We are trusting God to show each of us how to grow in this crisis, and to see His will unfold for our nation and the world. As that occurs, be aware of several ways we can remain connected.
Online Teaching from Pastor Bryce - We encourage you to watch the teaching link from me, sometime today or tomorrow. I have recorded a message from the book of Matthew, especially written for this time of pandemic crisis. It is a video file. You can find the video file link on the CENTERSTAGE home page. There is a written version of this teaching available there.
Prayer - All of us can continue to pray. If you want to share a prayer request with our prayer team, please use the following link: Prayer Request or send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to talk to a prayer partner, please call Diana at 510.673.0248, Glenda at 480.234.8491, or Mickey at 480.924.5122.
Giving - You can click the following link to give online - Online Giving. Or you can use the regular mail to give - 550 S. Ironwood Dr., Apache Junction, AZ 85120. It goes without saying that your gifts are extremely important in this time. Please make the extra effort to continue to give.
Some announcements and information you should be aware of.
1. The leadership of the church will be making a decision this week about the month of April. Please watch your email as we will let you know about how long plans are for online worship and prayer.
2. If you have ideas about how to minister online with others in our fellowship, please write to me at email@example.com.
3. If there is someone you know who needs assistance, food, errands, or other help, please help them if you can or let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A final word from Pastor Mickey Bryce:
Please take advantage of my online teaching video. And take seriously the challenge of staying connected throughout this world crisis. God is definitely getting people's attention, and it is His glory that will be the final product of this pandemic. Please pray for me as I work really hard to minister in this time both to our church family and to the Zao Theatre family. I sent a video to them as well last week and so many responded with thanks and encouragement. You can view that video on my personal Facebook page.
Sincerely in Christ,
Pastor Michael E. (Mickey) Bryce
Pastor, Centerstage Church
