To Our Assembly Family,

Last weekend we may not have been able to be together in person, but most of you joined us online for our weekend service.  We are so glad church is much more than a building.  God’s presence was real in homes all over this community!

As many of you are home with children, grandchildren, and youth, we wanted you to know that we are creating quality online programs and activities for them. Here is the schedule of upcoming weekly programming:

In addition to services for youth and kids, you can find further information and activities on their social platforms. For example, The Assembly Kids have a Pinterest Board full of age-specific ideas to do at home with your children. Click the ministry links below to find out more:

Reminder, all of the services and information about what is going on during this season can be found on our recently updated website – www.theassembly.org.

Know this, we are praying for you! If you find yourself in need of prayer, please call the church at 918-251-8591 or fill out our care form.

Serving Neighbors and Nations,

The Assembly Staff

We had an incredible weekend of online services. All on-site events and activities are canceled at both campuses until April. We access the situation and make further decisions each week as new information from state and national authorities are released.

This week will continue to do all our services online. Our homepage has all the links. The youth service will be Wednesday at 7pm and our kid’s programming will be on Thursday at 10am and 6pm.

If you need assistance during this time, fill out our care form or call (918) 251-8591.

We are praying for you, church family!

The church is adjusting, not closing. 🔥🙌

Here are 3 ways to adjust with us:

1. STREAM 📲
Show up to streaming services like you would show up to the church building. Don’t let distance become disconnect. Lean in and stream live!

2. GIVE 💰
The Assembly is still on mission. We need to be more generous than ever as we serve neighbors and nations in a difficult time. Stay faithful in your giving.

3. SHARE 🤳
It’s never been easier to invite someone to church! All you have to do is share the stream.
Invite your friends to come stream with you.

This can be the church’s greatest hour. 🙌

We love you. We miss you. We’re with you. 🔥

To Our Parents,

Having waited as long as I feel I can, I deeply regret to tell you that, out of an abundance of caution, I’ve made the decision to postpone our Mpact spring retreat. By “postpone” I want to emphasize that we will now go to work on how to reschedule this event that I know is such a highlight for our students and you, our leaders. I’m joining with our pastoral team to get on the solution side of this and find an alternative set of dates for this to happen.

Thank you for your life investment in our students and their discipleship. We will work to reschedule and are happy to transfer your funds to that event. However, we can refund any money you have paid for Spring Retreat if that is preferable. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Pastor Ron

To Our Assembly family,

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our heart to protect the most at-risk groups and all facts and wisdom being considered, The Assembly is moving exclusively to online services this weekend.

We will stream Rose District Campus service on Saturday at 6pm and will stream one service on Sunday at 10am from the South Campus.  The online services will consist of a brief welcome and go straight into the message. Click here to watch.

Along with our leadership team and board, I will evaluate the coming weeks with prayer and available information and update you as necessary.

As always, we move forward with the peace of God and His unfailing Word as our source.

I love you,
Pastor Ron

To Our Assembly Family:

I am sure you are aware of what is happening in the world around us. COVID-19 (coronavirus), has gained our attention prompting us to be in prayer for those throughout the world impacted by it. We are asking God to heal those who are sick, to protect those who are at risk of contracting the virus, and to pour out His wisdom on the doctors, nurses and medical professionals who are tirelessly caring for those in need.

Knowing you have concerns about the Coronavirus, we want to put your mind at ease by sharing with you the steps we are taking to safeguard and protect our congregation and staff. While most of these measures are already diligently taken by the church on a routine basis, the following actions will be in place until further notice:

→ Our Dream Team volunteers at all locations will greet you with a friendly wave instead of a handshake.

→ Similarly, during the “Welcome” portion of our worship services, we will not ask you to shake hands- a wave or “elbow bump” will do.

→ Although prayer time after service will continue, as usual, we ask you to wash/sanitize your hands after any contact.

→ We will conduct additional cleanings across all of our locations, and our staff will use sanitizer to wipe down shared and frequently touched surfaces before and after each service.

→ We will use an industrial “fogging” machine on a timely schedule. It is proven to be effective removing 99%+ of germs in a treated room/area.

→ We have additional hand sanitizer stations across all of our locations.

→ We will implement these additional sanitization measures in Assembly Kids, including wiping down all surfaces such as play areas and toys. Our nursery rooms have extensive checklists of cleaning procedures before, during, and after services.

We also recommend the following to keep your family healthy during this time:

→ Please stay home if you are not feeling well. Here is the link to join our online service. Services are viewable on your computer, mobile device, and on your television using Apple TV, Roku, or FireTV on the Livestream App.

→ Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

→ Follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s guidelines for using a face mask. The CDC does not recommend that healthy people need to wear masks to prevent contracting Coronavirus.

If you have traveled to any of the countries where there are outbreaks of the virus, please follow immediate guidance from the CDC.

Our pastors, staff and ministry leaders have already begun implementing the above measures and will continue to monitor what additional steps may need to be implemented in the future. We will also continue to follow guidance from local and national authorities on appropriate next steps and necessary precautions our church should take. We appreciate your partnership in order to maintain the health and safety of our church family. We love you and are praying for you!

Serving Neighbors and Nations,

Ron Woods, Lead Pastor
