Hey Watersprings Church Family!

Can we all pray, “Maranatha LORD Jesus!”?

What a crazy world we are all living in, RIGHT?!? Just for your information, if the Lord does not come back for us by this weekend we will still be having all ON CAMPUS services at Watersprings Church. We will continue to meet ON CAMPUS and ONLINE at our normal service times. We are looking forward to worshiping with you and yours, because we are one family, no matter where we are, or what is happening around us. Stay connected to each other by phone, email, text, DM, PM or go on a prayer walk with someone and encourage them this week as you pray for our fellowship and community.

What does the face covering order mean for us as a church? Eastern Idaho Public Health has issued an order for Bonneville County that mandates people to wear a face covering over our nose and mouth when in a public/social gathering. Worship services are still falling into a different category than public/social gatherings, so we are not being asked not to meet, or limit our worship attendance or not to sing praises to God. We are still asking everyone to continue with CDC guidelines and Governor Little’s Reopen Idaho Plan. For the most part, things are able to stay the same. However, we are requesting everyone attending ON CAMPUS services to observe the order when coming in and out of the building, maintaining social distancing, and keep the face covering on when possible. How does the “face covering thing” look for us this weekend? Please wear your face covering into the building and after you have found a seat, if you are socially distanced from those around you (excluding your family/household), you are welcome to remove your face covering and enjoy the service. After service place your face covering back over your nose and mouth and head outside to fellowship with others. It is that simple. If you are not able to socially distance please keep your face covering on. The fellowship hall is set up as an overflow if things are crowded in the sanctuary. Please remember, if you have to get up during service, please put your face covering back on until you return to your seat. Please note face coverings are not required to be worn under certain circumstances, please follow the link below and review section “C”.

Please pray for the church leaders, things keep changing from day to day. Truly, this is like shooting at a moving target with a blindfold on. One of the things we need to remember in all this is to keep looking forward, love Jesus passionately and love one another practically. “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” (Galatians 6:9–10).

Remember, washing your hands often is an ongoing practice of loving our neighbors and families. If you are not comfortable in a face covering or if you or your kids show symptoms or are sick, please stay home and participate with us ONLINE. Also send a prayer request to us at prayer@watersprings.net so we can be praying for you, or call us anytime at 208-524-4747.

Keep loving God, loving each other, loving our community, and don’t let the opportunity pass by. Love today. Love up. Love in. Love out. Love now.

You are loved.
You are family.
