Sunday Morning on Zoom
The past several weeks have been disorienting for most of us. Life has been changed in temporary and permanent ways. While the future feels uncertain, this season invites us into an opportunity to reset. In the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, God’s people have been in exile for 70 years, but through Nehemiah, God leads them to reset their lives. As they move back to their homeland and rebuild their lives together, they are leaning on God's promises every step of the way. Together let’s explore how God wants to renew, rebuild, and reset our lives.
Message: "All Hands On Deck" • Pastor Jason • Nehemiah 2:17-3:2
Discussion groups are now happening after the service.
If you would like to stick around to participate, here are the questions we will be considering:
- Share an example of when you participated in a team-building exercise.
- What are you seeing in your life or in our community that needs rebuilding?
- What are some examples that you've seen in the past or ideas you'd like to implement to help build God's kingdom this week?
Join us for church at 10AM on Zoom! We are using the same link each week:
If you are new to Zoom church, please sign up at zoom.us before Sunday--it's free!
We will worship together, hear a message from Pastor Jason, interview Megan Pipe from Treetops Collective, and have an opportunity for discussion afterwards. We encourage you to join before 10AM to ensure your connection. Please contact Pastor Jason (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions concerning Zoom!
Love INC Food Drive
This Sunday we will be talking about what it means to help "rebuild" our community and we wanted to find an immediate way to take action. Love INC will be dropping off a trailer in the Evergreen parking lot this Sunday to fill with critical food needs. We invite you and your family to fill a grocery bag or two with items and deliver them on Sunday to the trailer between 6-8PM. We are excited to give you a reason to visit Evergreen, as the mountain bike trail continues to develop and the pear trees are in full bloom.
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 Treetops Collective, an organization on mission to connect New American women with people and opportunities in their new communities.

Our 4 Corners Offering will happen through a bottle and pop can drive! If you have returnable bottles and cans piling up, save them and we will collect them next month. Please contact Laura Male (email@example.com) with any questions!
