COVID-19 Guidance

March 19, 2020    

We want to update you and provide additional clarity on how we are planning worship services and ministry events. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this challenging season.

Following the latest guidance from Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), One Fellowship Church will not gather in person but will offer online Sunday morning services until further notice.

In addition, all One Fellowship Church ministry events and meetings are canceled or postponed until further notice. The Congregational Meeting scheduled for Sunday, March 22, 2020 will be rescheduled. Our Easter worship service on April 12, 2020 will be online only. The One Fellowship Church offices are closed and the staff is working remotely until further notice.

Sunday Morning Worship Services   

Sunday morning worship services will be online at onefellowship.com/sermons 

Financial Measures & Giving

Our staff and elders are taking aggressive measures to freeze spending while still focusing on the priorities of: (1) serving people inside and outside our church, and (2) providing for our staff as they minister. Thankfully, our church was in a solid financial position prior to this season. 

However, everything we do in ministry is dependent on our collective generosity. Our Benevolence Task Force is able to minister to people because you give.

Online giving is now the main way to support the ongoing ministry of One Fellowship Church. You can give online at onefellowship.com/give. To learn how to give an online gift, please view our Online Giving help article.

Pastoral Care   

Our elder and staff teams are developing plans for pastoral care for our people in this season, especially for those in our congregation who are at greatest risk.  

For Discipleship groups, Bible studies, and other fellowship, we encourage you to explore other ways to meet via phone or video calls to continue ministering to, encouraging, and praying for one another in the weeks ahead.  

We care deeply for those who are already affected by this and are praying for God’s leading and wisdom as we navigate the next few weeks.    

Stay Informed  

All future communication will continue to be distributed through this page: onefellowship.com/updates. The best source of information on COVID-19 is the CDC’s website. If you have any questions, please email  .  

Thank you for helping us keep One Fellowship Church a safe place to Love God, Love People, and Share Jesus.
