Dear Bellevue Family,

In accordance with Mayor Jim Strickland’s “Safer at Home” order, Bellevue’s campus will be closed through April 7. Because of this, all Sunday Worship Services—including Palm Sunday, April 5—will be online only. 

During this time, the majority of our Bellevue staff are working offsite with only essential personnel working at Bellevue. You can still access the West Lobby to drop office tithes and offerings as the grounds of Bellevue will remain open every day from 5:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Each Sunday, we will host one online morning Worship Service at 10:00 and an online evening Worship Service at 6:00. Join us on bellevuelive.org or on our Facebook page to participate in these services. Additionally, all in-person activities, including Life Groups and Wednesday night Equip classes, will be postponed until further notice.

Although we are not meeting in person, Bellevue’s leadership is staying connected to all of our ministries and consistently evaluating the needs and opportunities to serve and lead the Bellevue family. Our Life Group leaders also continue to develop resources to encourage and empower Life Groups to stay connected and grow during this time. These resources are available at bellevue.org/leadership.

Additionally, we are continuing to serve the needs of our church and local community through this challenging season. Our Missions Ministry continues to work with our Ministry Partners (Serve Out Pathways) to most effectively help those in need within our local community. We will update you as more details become available on how you can Serve Out during this time.
Although we are distant physically, we encourage you to stay close spiritually—continue to Worship, Connect, and Equip with Bellevue online. Please visit bellevue.org for a list of digital resources available to you. As always, we look forward to praying and worshiping with you online this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
III John 2,

 

Bro. Steve Gaines
