Update From Newport Mesa Church

We are carefully monitoring the evolving Coronavirus situation through the CDC, WHO, and local health authorities and will continue to take a proactive approach to keeping our community healthy.  After much prayer and conversation, our staff wanted to share with you how you can continue to connect with your church family. In the midst of fear and uncertainty within our culture and from what you see in the media, we really believe that this is a crucible moment for the church to BE THE CHURCH.

ALL IN-PERSON MEETINGS AND EVENTS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Here is how you can still participate with us online:  

1.  We will produce a live-stream of our service in it's ENTIRETY. You can gather with us online and worship, give, and respond to God’s Word from your home. (Click the "We're live now!" graphic below.) We want you to know you are NOT alone.  If you feel alone…send us an email and we will respond!
2. You can start a watch party through FACEBOOK LIVE.  A Watch Party is a way to watch the video with your friends or your Small Group, and be able to comment with each other in real-time. This will help you and others stay connected.  It is way easier than you think. People need to have the hope of Jesus in this season! Scroll to the bottom of the page if you need assistance with this option or click the following link for our Facebook page.

HERE ARE FIVE WAYS YOU CAN RESPOND:

PRAY

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.

GIVE

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

CHECK IN ON PEOPLE

Check-in on Neighbors. Check-in on Church friends. Check-in on Social Media. People need to be encouraged to hear from God in this season.  BE THE CHURCH!  Let’s build some relationships and learn how to pray for each other, worship together, and CARE for each other. You can serve people in our area by joining a Care Team in Costa Mesa and beyond to help bring some assistance to people who have been impacted by this pandemic.
