Moody Church Family:


Our Heavenly Father is still in control! These are difficult times with the spread of the coronavirus but God’s people should be known by their love, not by fear. So keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and let’s live out our faith in the Sovereign Lord of Creation!


Out of concern for the most vulnerable among us, and in deference to our elected leaders, the Elders have made some major changes to our ministry schedule this week. You can read about these adjustments here. We will keep you informed of future changes as soon as they are made.


Let’s remember to be a witness for Jesus, the Prince of Peace, during this difficult time in our city. The Church has been the hands and feet of Jesus during challenging times throughout history. We have an opportunity to be reflections of Jesus’ peace to a society that is uncertain and fearful. Pray for the sick and medical personnel, check in and offer to help those at risk, share the gospel, and take this unique opportunity to love and serve those around you!


For His glory,
