YES! WE ARE MEETING ON ZOOM THIS SUNDAY!
Wait. Everyone is logging onto Zoom together?
Yes. Two of our aims during this crisis are to remain gospel-grounded and relationally-connected. Connecting on Zoom will allow both to happen!
What if I am brand new to Seven Mile Road? Can I participate?
Yes. 100%. We'd love for you to join us.
Will everyone see me when I login?
No. You have the option to turn your camera off for the call. Only the name you enter when logging on will appear if you prefer it that way.
What will happen during the call?
Will begin with some "announcements:" to get everyone on the same page of how church life is working over the next 30-90 days. Then one of our pastors will walk us through some big truths from the Biblical book of Philippians, written that time when Paul was on lockdown. We'll also pray together. And then all the kids will hold their pet dogs and cats and rabbits and other various animals up to the screen.
Is it complicated to login to Zoom?
No. All you have to do is click the link, enter a name, and it will take you to the conference call.
In response to growing concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), City of Melrose officials recently posted an “Update on COVID-19 and City Services and Facilities” in which they “recommend that organizations and private individuals cancel any large gatherings.”
In response to this, and in love for our neighbors, we’ll be taking the following next steps:·
We will not gather for worship for the time being.
We are also suspending our Melrose Playgroup indefinitely.
As well as any in-person meeting of Gospel Communities.
As things unfold, we’ll stay in touch with any updates.
And remember, while it is right to be concerned and cautious as the virus spreads, let’s rest (and revel!) in the goodness and sovereignty of God over and in and through all things, and in the unshakeability of His gospel love for us, even in the hardest of times.
P.S. If you are looking to read a primer on the Coronavirus, here is a helpful one published by The Gospel Coalition: thegospelcoalition.org/article/what-we-know-coronavirus/
Welcome to Seven Mile Road.
We've built this church for you.
That you might come alive to God and His gospel with us.
Whether you are a born-and-raised Bostonian, are just passing through, or are here to stay, if you are looking for a local church that's big on gospel centrality, holiness and humility, orthodox theology, supertight community, and missional living, you found it.
