What to Know

Fellowship Family,

When I was a boy, my grandfather (born in 1913) used to tell stories about a time when he was 5 years old and a sickness swept through the hills outside of Calico Rock where he lived. He was the only person in his family who didn’t get sick. He recounted that his family couldn’t lift their heads from their pillows because they were so ill. He gathered and cooked eggs on a wood stove to keep he and his dog from starving. It occurred to me later in life that he was describing the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. It affected ¼ of the world’s population and though they estimate that over 50,000,000 people died, no one knows for sure. My grandfather said there were houses scattered throughout the hills where entire families had died. There is so much we don’t know about Covid-19, but as of now, it continues to spread rapidly and where one person may have mild symptoms, the virus is deadly to another. It is essential that we take this virus seriously and follow CDC and “good sense” guidelines, as the numbers in Arkansas and surrounding states continue to climb. Your church staff is taking precautions and we hope you are, as well.

Holy Week begins Sunday
Adult Daily Readings & Devotional
Family Devotional
As we enter Holy Week in our Clarity series, we have a tremendous opportunity to spend extra devotional time contemplating the last week of Christ’s life on earth. Our worship teams, teachers, video producers, and audio technicians are working hard to provide us with excellent experiences on Palm Sunday and Easter. They are doing an excellent job! Your staff are all heartbroken that we can’t conduct Palm Sunday and Easter services live with all of you. But… it is what it is! I hope you will find comfort and joy in the resources made available.

Join me in Prayer
A good brother sent the following to me today: “This has been coming to my mind a lot over the last few weeks, especially since we have been praying for revival during a global pandemic. Can you imagine if: the Lord ended the Coronavirus on either Good Friday or Easter? When I say end it... I mean not a trace of it anywhere in the world. BAM... it's just gone. Not just Rogers... or Arkansas... or USA... I mean nowhere on the planet could it be found. Before a vaccine, before weather, or anything else could take the credit, that it would vanish in a way that could not be explained on Easter, the day Christians recognize as the day their Savior conquered the grave. God is big enough and is able to do more than we can ask or imagine!”

Why don’t we join him in this prayer? I think of what Dr. Bill Bright once said, “My greatest regret is that someday when I stand before Christ, I will realize that I asked Him for far too little.” Let’s ask God to do more than we could ever ask or imagine. Thank you, again, Fellowship for your generosity during this time. This is a frightening time financially for so many, but you have not wavered in your giving to God through Fellowship. We are a blessed church and I pray that, in turn, we are a blessing to Northwest Arkansas and the world.

Ways to Engage


Community 
During this unique time, we have the challenge as followers of Christ to continue to be the church. How do we continue to fulfill the command of Hebrews 10 to “not give up meeting together” and to continue to “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” when we are not able to physically be together? The answer can be as simple as a phone call or even something more creative like connecting through a video or chat platform like Google Hangouts.

During this time our Clarity series will continue as planned and this link will get you to the recorded sermon for this Sunday. Feel free to continue reading, listening, praying, and studying through Clarity.
WORSHIP 
While church services are canceled, we will be providing weekly videos of worship & teaching accompanied by resources to help families engage in church at home. We hope this will be an encouraging time to grow in your personal devotion to Jesus and together as a family.

Gather in Small Groups

We all need to be known, loved, and surrounded by others who will encourage and support us as we navigate life and grow in our faith. We believe this happens best in the context of a small group - a place to belong, grow, and serve within our cities and neighborhoods. Children experience small groups during their services on Sunday mornings, and students and adults gather in small groups in homes throughout the week. We want to help you flourish in your season of life and small groups are foundational to accomplishing this in a meaningful way!

Clarity: Theology

The word theology simply means the study of God. The way we study & know God determines what we believe & how we will interact with Him and the world. Theology is a word that strikes either fear or boredom into the hearts of many. But, pursuing theology is the most relevant thing a Christian can do.
