Guided Worship Opportunity
We understand that the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 situation have varying degrees of impact on different people in our community. Some families are feeling the effects of closures and cancellations deeply and severely, while others are able to generally maintain their rhythms of life with minor alterations. In whatever anxieties and challenges you’re experiencing, we want to provide an opportunity for you to step back, take a deep breath, and explore the promises of Jesus. Here, you will find scripture, songs, sermon clips, and questions that you may use this weekend to help you better understand the humanity of Jesus.
Updates on COVID-19
Yesterday, we sent out a letter updating our community that we decided to extend our cancelation of all large group gatherings through April 9. Unfortunately, this continues to include Sunday worship, all student ministry gatherings, and recovery services. You can read the letter and our initial letter by clicking the buttons below:

Giving at Evergreen
Evergreen is working hard to continue to care well for our church and our community. Like many businesses, families, and organizations, the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus put churches in a difficult financial situation. If you would like to give financially in the weeks in which we are unable to gather, you can do so by clicking this button:
4 Corners Offering
This series, we're partnering with Jehovah Jireh Ministries of West Michigan for our 4 Corners offering. Jehovah Jireh is a tangible expression of God's love and provision, providing free food and clothing, as well as Christian love and encouragement to approximately 200 families each week.
Virtual Book Club
Even though we’re experiencing some isolation, we wanted to create an opportunity to read a book together! Evergreen’s staff will be reading “The Importance of Being Foolish” by Brennan Manning for the next 7 weeks and recording a ‘Book Club’ discussion that you can listen to each week. If you want to join in, grab the physical or digital version of the book from Amazon or wherever you get your books. Afterwards, read pages 3-37, then check out our discussion on Spotify.
