Hey WEAG Family,
God is doing amazing things in the midst of this crisis. Another 60 people came to Christ on Easter Sunday bringing the total to approximately 200 people who have made a choice for Jesus at weag.online in the past four weeks. Our attendance and views for Palm and Easter Sunday services totaled 12,320 devices – God is working!
Our Wednesday night prayer times at weag.online and daily prayer on social media have been beautiful times of connection. If you would like to receive a prayer list of people who are struggling, please email email@example.com. Thank you to those who continue to serve and partner with God and WEAG to meet the needs of our community.
- Blood Drive – It was an amazing event this week! We had 12 volunteers and 91people who donated blood. One blood donation can help up to three people and the blood we collected this week will all be used locally. We are hosting another drive on May 5 and 6.
- Friends of the Homeless Feeding Program – Continues every week!
- Camp WEAG – We’re now hosting Amelia County who will be using our Lodge as a safe house for first responders who’ve been exposed to COVID-19.
- Essential Delivery – Our volunteers continue to serve the more vulnerable in our community and stand ready to help those who cannot get out for basic needs.
I’d like to present you with an idea – our own Corona Challenge! Help us continue to see God’s Kingdom expanded by joining God at work with a portion of what the IRS has provided for many of you. Imagine if 1,000 people gave the first 10% to God’s work through the church from this tax relief check – we would collect $120,000 to help more people! Many people have been devastated in this crisis and we’re dreaming of how God might use us to help with money that may come to us above our regular tithes and offerings. If you’d like to join us, click here to give online.
- Daily Prayer with a WEAG Pastor – (Mon, Wed, Fri at 10am on Facebook Live and Tues, Thurs at 7pm on Instagram Live)
- Midweek Worship and Prayer – 7:30pm at weag.online
Join us at weag.online this Sunday for the last installment of our Jesus Said Series. Invite some friends to join you online this week! I can’t wait to tell you what’s happening next.
Stay safe and healthy – I love you!
