Dear Life Spring Family,
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, in accordance with health professionals’ recommendations and the directives of local, state & national officials, the Life Spring Elders have suspended all activities on the Life Spring Camps at 206 N. Webster for the foreseeable future, effective immediately. This applies to worship services, Bible studies and private events taking place on the campus. It does not apply to the Spring Hill Food Pantry at Life Spring, located at 210 N. Webster. It is our goal to continue to operate the food pantry as long as possible given the growing needs for these services during this time. (Click here for details on operational changes at the Food Pantry).
While the Elders encourage Life Groups and Iron Men groups to cancel their meetings during this time, each group will have to make its own decision. However, the entire purpose of suspending such activities is to avoid crowds of people in intimate settings, so please consider canceling your groups until the situation improves.
The Church Office will also be closed during this time, but the staff is still working. Feel free to call or email staff members as necessary. If you need something from the Office, we can meet by appointment. If there is any way that we can help (e.g. getting groceries or medicine or just providing a listening ear), let us know.
Also, please contact an Elder (contact info is available here) if you have any specific needs. Our Elders are concerned for your physical and spiritual welfare, and we want to shepherd you and your family during these uncertain times.
This was a difficult & painful—but necessary—decision. The risks of continuing to gather by the dozens or hundreds is simply too great to continue business as usual during this health crisis.
We are working on plans to offer an online video service that will be available on Sunday mornings. We will communicate details to you on this later in the week. The best way to stay engaged with our church community is through our Face Book page (click here). If you haven’t already “liked” our page, please do so. We are going to try to utilize it extensively to keep in touch. We will also update our website to keep information current.
We appreciate your continued faithful
giving to support the ministries of the church. You can mail offerings to the
church office at
PO Box 554 Spring Hill, KS 66083. It is easy to give online as well, go to our giving page or on the Life Spring app.
We encourage you to view this time as an opportunity to be the church of Jesus Christ in your own neighborhoods. Give your friends & neighbors reasons for hope and encouragement. The church doors are closed, but doors of opportunity are open for you to live out your faith in real and tangible ways.
As you know if you are following the news, the details of this crisis change daily. The Elders will continue to monitor the situation and keep you apprised as to how we will proceed. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please get in touch with one of us.
Love in Him,
The Life Spring Board of Elders
