COVID-19

information & updates

March 17, 2020 – 4:00pm

Image Family,

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 is making the following decisions:

No Weekend Gathering SUNDAY

THIS weekend, Sunday, March 22nd, we will NOT be gathering at East Cobb Middle School.

Instead, we want to invite you to worship at home with us through our online gathering with your family or roommates. In a time of uncertainty and fear, we can be a light of gospel hope. We will post our gathering on our website at 10:30 am Sunday morning!

NEXT Weekend

Based on the current policies and procedures for Cobb County Public Schools, we have been informed that we will NOT be able to gather NEXT weekend, March 29th. We will be worshiping from home again next weekend through our website, and would again encourage you to leverage this time with us online! This is a great chance to be intentional in a time when people are searching for hope.

Communication In the Days Ahead

We are continuing to monitor updates from Cobb County Schools and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; we will provide necessary updates on our website. We recognize that this is a unique situation with constant new information and updates. If we have to communicate any last-minute decisions or changes, we will provide updates on social media, and on our website.

Dealing with COVID-19 From a Christian Perspective

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. 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 for you on our resources page.
