We wanted to reach out to you and provide an update on the plans we are making as a church in the midst of COVID-19 [Coronavirus]. Our heart has always been for the people of Atmosphere and the Conejo Valley, and when something like this happens, your safety, health, and well-being are our top priority. We have been mindful of the spread of the virus and have taken a series of precautionary steps in response to the recommendations provided by our health and government officials.
Because of this, we will be canceling our gathering this Sunday at Los Robles Greens and instead we want you to join us online for “Atmosphere Live” this weekend. We will be broadcasting our service at 10:00am on Sunday. You will be able to watch the service directly through our website at www.atmosphere.church. In addition to our website, you will also be able to watch the broadcast on our Atmosphere Facebook Page, as well as on YouTube. To watch us on YouTube, simply go to the YouTube App and search for “Atmosphere Church.” In addition to the “live” broadcast, we will be providing great resources for you and your kids to enjoy together. We are confident you and your family will continue to be encouraged and inspired in this crazy season we are in.
From the start, our value has been to prioritize the health of our church community and to do what we can to stop the spreading of the virus. We believe the steps we have taken as a church have been a great first step, and we are still in the process of exploring more options of how we can serve.
Our church leaders are working with local partners to practically serve and show up. Additionally, we’ve opened up assistance for anyone in our church that needs help with groceries, prescription pick-up, prayer and more. In the midst of the uncertainty, we remain committed to serving the Conejo Valley, but more importantly, we’re committed to serving you.
Ultimately, we wanted to say thank you and tell you how much we appreciate your faith. Times like these show how much Atmosphere is overflowing with people who are kind, generous, and faith-filled. Your trust in Jesus, resilience to overcome, and heart to serve are inspiring. We’re all in this together.
As we continue to move forward, let’s remember that Jesus is in control. He is our peace, and He is with us every step of the way. The peace of God always triumphs over fear and anxiety. Even through uncertainty, He’s given us a spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind. Let’s have faith for a solution to this virus, for healing of those that are affected, and for Jesus’ protection over our families and city.
Let’s also stay connected. Make sure to join us on our social media accounts for prayer, devotions, and more. If you feel led, you can donate online and continue to help us love our neighbors. We are here to help. We love you, and our prayers and love are with you during this time.
