Going Online to Love Our Community
Beginning this weekend, Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15, the Duluth Vineyard will be meeting exclusively online for worship services. To love and protect the most vulnerable in our Midwest community, we will not be hosting our services at our physical locations through at least Sunday, April 5. We welcome you to join us online at duluthvineyard.org. Our Sunday, March 15 Unchained service is also canceled.
As of now, we’ll continue our mid-week events and small groups as scheduled and our Fruit of the Vine Foodshelf will remain open to serve those in need. We will continue to post updated information on social media and our website.
Why We Are Glad To Go Online?
As followers of Jesus, we are to Love God and Love People. Going online allows us to love people, including people we don’t know and who don’t come to the Vineyard. We will intentionally inconvenience ourselves and make this sacrifice for others because that is the Way of Jesus.
Our hope is to help “flatten the curve,” in an effort to save the lives of those most vulnerable amongst us and supporting our local medical professionals and systems. While difficult, it is best to take the necessary steps now to avoid the possibility of far more catastrophic consequences later.
Keep Our Eyes on Jesus
This is a stressful time and it’s natural to feel that stress. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble.” But he also said, “Take heart! I have overcome the world.” In this difficult time, the God that has overcome the world can give us the peace and comfort we need. Go to Jesus. Please take some time at home (praying, reading your Bible, meditating, etc.) to experience the love of God. It is so good.
