SILVERDALE’S CONTINUED RESPONSE
TO THE CORONAVIRUS
Updated March 26, 2020
The news is ever-changing about the COVID-19 virus and the best response to it. We are continually monitoring the news, consulting with officials, and adjusting our plans as needed.
We will continue to hold off on weekend services and on-campus events for the next few weeks. In the meantime, we will continue to provide a full, interactive worship service at silverdalebc.com/live. Share this link with your families, neighbors, and small group. Just because we’re not meeting together doesn’t mean we should stop growing in our faith. We heard many stories of God working through last weekend’s broadcast and I believe this weekend is going to be even more powerful.
Even though we are not meeting together for weekend worship services, the ministry of Silverdale continues as we work with local ministry partners to care for those who need it during this time. Join us in this mission, here are some opportunities to serve right now!
