Responding to Covid-19

Hello ChangePoint Family,

We have been actively learning about Covid-19 and asking how God would have us best serve our church family and our broader communities. We feel two responsibilities very strongly:

  1. To in every way possible, safeguard the health of our communities.
  2. To increase the ways in which we minister to people during this pandemic.

To safeguard the health of our communities we are making the following changes from now until April 30 (in accordance with CDC recommendations):

  1. All ChangePoint worship services will be held online, not in person.
  2. Our offices will be closed to the public.

To increase the ways we minister to people during this time, we are taking the following actions:

  1. We will continue to be available during our normal Sunday – Thursday schedule. You can reach us by phone at (907) 646-4800, email communitylife@changepointalaska.com, or send us a message via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
  2. We will be personally connecting with every known member of our church family.
  3. We are building new systems to effectively meet needs that arise.

In this season of social distancing it is critical for the church to be the church – people connect to one another in the power of the Holy Spirit. To that end, we are creating many online opportunities to gather as a church.

This Sunday, please join us at one of our online worship services:

  • ChangePoint Alaska will have two worship services at 10:30am and 6:00pm.
  • ChangePoint Tikahtnu will join with Raspberry at 10:30am and 6:00pm.
  • ChangePoint Matsu will have a worship service via Zoom video conference at 11:00am. Links to join will be posted on the ChangePoint MatSu Alaska Facebook page and MatSu Fam Facebook group.
  • ChangePoint Kotzebue will worship online via their Facebook page.

Many other ministries and groups continue to meet online via Zoom conference or other online tools. Expect communication from ministry leaders in the coming days on how to stay connected within those ministries.

Meanwhile it’s important to stay connected:

  • Bookmark changepointalaska.com – There is a link to our online services on the homepage.
  • Follow us on Facebook – For links to worship services and many other events.
  • Download the ChangePoint app – Stay up to date with changes, and join meetings directly from the app.
  • Download the Zoom app – Many ministries are using Zoom to stay connected.

We will continue to bring you more information as needs and opportunities arise. Thank you for your commitment to your church and its vision to bring life in Christ to every Alaskan and the world beyond.
