Church is online this Sunday!
In adherence to Washington State’s “Stay home, Stay healthy” protection order, Evergreen Church will not be gathering in person, but will stream services online. Our Sunday morning service will stream at 10 A.M. on both YouTube and Facebook. Our Wednesday evening service will stream at 7 P.M. on both YouTube and Facebook.
In the meantime, we encourage you to remain engaged with us and connected with each other through social media, email, phone, etc. Reach out to those you know and love and let them know how much they mean to you. Continue to pray for the protection and provision of both our church family and your own individual community.
Along with that, I want to thank our church body for your continued, faithful giving over these weeks. This means a lot to us. Some of you may be up against your own financial strains with much uncertainty for how the days ahead will unfold. Please know that we are incredibly grateful for you and your family, and your continued support of Evergreen Church.
Lastly, receive God’s grace this week. If you are anxious or irritable or intolerable, or something even worse, understand that this doesn’t disqualify you from receiving God’s grace. You don’t stand because you’re perfect. You stand because Christ is perfect. And he is able and willing to be the strength you need.
Pastor Dan Behrens, Friday, March 27th, 2020
SOME EXCITING NEWS!
We are so excited to be moving into a beautiful space to hold our Sunday morning services—the Junior Achievement of Washington facility here in Auburn. If you don’t regularly attend church or don’t yet have a church home, come visit us this Sunday at our new location: 1610 Perimeter Road, Auburn 98001. Our service time is at 10 A.M. and we would love to see you! We sing contemporary worship songs, hear meaningful preaching from the bible, and dress causal. Just come as you are. In the meantime, you can find out a bit more about us down below and from the menu links above.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
At Evergreen Foursquare Church (EFC) there are no perfect, super-spiritual people. Everyone is trying their best to hear God’s voice and actively pursue him in faith. We believe this is best expressed in a healthy community of believers. Here at EFC we hope to be just that: a gracious, loving, growing community of believers who desire to grow in the grace and character of Jesus. We’d love for you join us on this journey. You will find that we love to worship and be strengthened by the preaching of God’s Word; that we are not just trying to entertain anyone, but rather foster an environment where everyone can experience the personal love of Jesus.
We believe the local church should be a gracious and loving place; and again, a place where there is room enough for all of us to hear the voice of God and respond to his leading. There should also be opportunity for us to look at our own lives in a healthy way, acknowledging both the gifts of Christ in us as well as those areas where we need to grow.
We also believe the local church—whether Evergreen Church or any other church you visit—needs your regular committed attendance to be a place of love and grace, joy and peace. The people there will be served well by Christ in you. And you, also, need the gathered body of Christ to come alongside you with acceptance, grace, and the perspective of God. I invite you to visit a local church this week. Perhaps Evergreen. Perhaps a different church. Pray about it. Ask the Lord where you should attend this week. Then go. Then go again the following week! You won’t regret this step of faith.
