Virtual Community: Church at Home

This week, we wanted to talk to you guys about what it means to have church at home. There are so many layers to this new experience, and it begs the conversation about community and what it now looks like for all of us.

As Hebrews 10:24-25 says, “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good deeds, not giving up together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

It is easy to let the time slip away, and it feels as though we can’t fit church into our busy and disrupted lives. We are blessed to live in these modern times where all of this is now so readily available online. Worship in your home sets a different precedent when you are used to attending your weekly service, at a usual time in your usual church. Each day brings its new challenges, but how wonderful is it to rest on the community that Jesus so graciously has gifted us so we know that we know that we are not alone.

Although nothing can ever replace the act of physically going to church, the fact that we are able to witness others virtually communing together in His Word is heartwarming. The best part of all of this, is that we’ve seen so many new believers coming to Christ. This could be because of a sense of isolation, fear and silence that many are experiencing during this crisis, but it could also be to find hope and togetherness while leaning into something that feels welcoming and constant.
