Dear Springs Family, March 19, 2020
Good afternoon Springs Church Family! Please be advised that out of an abundance of caution and to be in compliance with the Emergency Declarations in Oklahoma City and Edmond, we are moving to a virtual church service only starting this week. Again, we have no indication of any Springs member who is positive for the coronavirus COVID-19 at this time.
We are encouraging all members of The Springs to join us at 10:30AM on the live stream this Sunday, March 22, 2020. The link to our live stream is here. If you need some help, please give us a call.
We will have worship as usual on our live stream including music, communion, and sermon. Please make preparation to have bread and juice available at home so we can all partake of communion "together". You can give online here, or even send your contribution check to the church (The Springs 21477 N Western Ave. Edmond, OK 73012).
We will continue to keep you updated regarding when we will begin to gather again at the building for worship. Check out the website for the latest updates here. However, we will refrain from gathering all of us together at least until the Emergency Declaration expires on April 12, 2020.
Let’s establish new rhythms as we journey through these days of social distancing. More than ever, please check in on each other and on your neighbors. I challenge each of you to call/text/video chat with someone who is alone today.
Also, I want us to begin to plan ways that we can help those who will be struggling financially in the weeks to come. Let’s be ready to open our hands to each other to share and care for each other. Join me in praying that God’s Spirit will open our eyes and ears to the needs around us and give us the courage to respond in love. What we believe is demonstrated in how we act during times like these.
Again, please be mindful of each other daily. This disruption is hard for many of our members. Please stay connected through calling and texting. We need each other.
As always, feel free to call/text/email if you need anything. We have lots of people ready to help as needs arise. We love you all dearly.

Acts 4:32-35 (ESV)
32 Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. 33 And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. 34 There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold 35 and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.
Philippians 4:6 (ESV)
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Most Recent Communication from Staff & Elders
March 13, 2020
Dear Springs Family,
Your staff and elders are paying close attention daily and are in ongoing communication to monitor the evolving situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) in our area. We are not planning at this point to cancel Sunday services. We pray this season passes quickly.
We want to reassure you that we are being careful to thoroughly clean our worship center. We are taking precautions to minimize exposure.
Some things we encourage you to do:
Refrain from handshakes and hugs. We can make holy fist bumps a thing for a time.
If you are ill with anything, or are in a high-risk category with underlying health conditions that compromise your immune system, please stay home and watch the livestream at www.thesprings.cc/messages
Take the time to check on our seniors who stay home.
Give online if possible. Our weekly expenses, missions support, and benevolence are ongoing needs. Don’t let any of our good works suffer due to danger of being in a full worship service setting.
Greeters will hold the doors for you when possible, please be conscious of all you are touching, and wash your hands!
Each of us will need to make decisions weekly based on best information possible.
Get info about Coronavirus (COVID-19) from reliable sources such as the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html
Another good source for information – World Health Organization: https://www.who.int/news-room/q-a-detail/q-a-coronaviruses
We don’t want to give way to a spirit of fear or timidity but will continue to stay alert and proceed with caution as the weeks unfold. We want to be mindful of each other during this time. It is easy to feel alone, so let’s check in with each other regularly.
Please join the elders and staff in praying for any who are suffering. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We love you all.
