Postponement of in-person services

Dear Newport Mesa Family,

What a year of unexpected events! Just when we thought it was safe to gather again, the infection rates are rising throughout our county. Now the latest guidelines from the governor temporarily prohibit communal singing due to the potential for increased risk of coronavirus transmission.

Gathering together as a church community is a high value for us. However, the health and well being of our congregation takes precedence. Out of an abundance of caution and love for you, our pastoral team and elders are in agreement that it is best to postpone our in-person gatherings for a while longer. We know this may be disappointing – it’s disappointing for us as well.

We will reassess when restrictions are lifted, but for now, we invite you to join with us for our digital, live stream experience on Sundays at 8:45 and 10:30am.

Remember, we don't cease being the church just because we aren’t physically gathering together on Sunday.

We WILL continue to worship in other ways, as we commit to…

  • Pray for our federal and local leaders
  • Serve our neighbors who are feeling isolated
  • Share God’s faithful love and the certain hope we have in him with our community
  • Feed the hungry
  • Connect with our small groups
  • Reach out to whomever the Holy Spirit places on your heart
  • Live out the greatest commandment, Matthew 22:36-40
  • Love one another as Christ loves you

We are praying for you! Please pray for wisdom for our pastoral team as we lead with compassion in this time of disruption. Pray for God’s protection over our church, keeping people from becoming ill. Pray that through all the trials brought on by the pandemic, people’s faith would be strengthened. Pray that during this time of uncertainty, God would draw many new followers, attracted by His unchanging love. And pray that as we minister through this historic time, God would be greatly glorified.

We are grateful for your understanding and support. We will get through this together. And, we will be the church, because our world desperately needs us right now.

You are deeply loved,
The Newport Mesa Church Pastoral Team and Elders

Participate with us online:  

We’ve been grateful for the ability to worship together at Newport Mesa Online! It's a great option if you want to invite a friend to join you! Starting at 8:45 AM PDT on Sundays, you can experience worship, the message, and the community of your church family through live chat and prayer. With several services each week, you can always find a service to attend. You can also find online community on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram at specific times throughout the week.
Prayer is powerful and God is our perfect source of comfort and care. Join us in praying for the people and areas affected. Let's also pray for our nation, community and church. Pray that our good and sovereign God will use this crisis for His glory and for people to come and Know Him.
In times like this, it is easy to shrink back…that is not what we are going to do.  We are going to lean in and trust God more than ever…especially with our finances. As a church we rely on the generosity of our people and encourage you to continue giving in this season. Let’s be generous and be faithful with our giving. You can give securely through the website or app. We will also be financially contributing to the fall-out of this in our community.  Stay tuned for more info there. For those of you that are used to giving in our services, please visit our giving page or you can also mail in your giving to this address:
Newport Mesa Church, 2599 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627
