** Contingent on Cobb County Schools
We are burdened to protect the health and safety of the community around us. In light of the increasing concerns about COVID-19 and based on the recommendations of government agencies, officials, as well as the policies for Cobb County Public Schools, Image Church has moved digital.
We were not created to walk through life alone—we need each other! Our Community Groups are places where we learn, laugh, and live as a family. Now is a great time to join a Community Group. All of our Groups are now meeting virtually—you can get connected here.
As the church, we want to navigate everything that’s happening through a biblical worldview. Pastor Todd Wagner has written a helpful article answering the question, “Should Christians Be Anxious About the Coronavirus?” which applies truths about God’s sovereignty, wisdom, and love specifically to this situation.
In addition, Akos Balogh wrote an incredible piece called “Dear Christian, When The Pandemic Hits, This Is Our Time” where he reminds us this is our time to care for our neighbors and share the love of Jesus Christ, which delivers us from sin and death.
As believers, we are called to run toward tragedy and not away from it. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus by caring for those in need and pointing people to ultimate hope that’s found in Christ.
You can learn practical ways to love your neighbor and serve the community around us in the days ahead in the document “How Can I Love My Neighbor?” published by Image Church. We're thankful for our church family during this season, we want to continue to be a source of light and hope in the midst of uncertainty. Be alert for ways that you can serve and love those God has placed around you both inside the church and out.
We have compiled a more in-depth list of documents and tools both for you and your family. You can access those by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page. In addition, if you need care, please make sure to fill out the form under Receive Care.
We’re in this together, please let us know how we can serve you!
