Tri County has made the difficult decision to temporarily cancel all public meetings, events and services. We know how important spiritual nourishment is during times like what we're living through and we're working overtime to provide options for our church and others. We encourage you to check this page often for updates.
We are currently working on a "ZOOM" online Bible Study. To prepare, we encourage you to download the FREE software for your computer or app for your smart phone. Just go to the I-tunes store, windows store and whatever "store" you use for your computer or smartphone and search for Google Meets. We're still learning the software, but we'll be able to have easy-to-click links to easily join our weekly SERMON ON THE MOUNT Bible Studies. The meeting ID is 685 593 525 and the Password is 777. It begins at 6:30 PM on Tuesdays. Click Here for a direct link.
We are also diligently working to video stream our services. Due to the number of churches and other groups that are very quickly enacting live streaming, some of the required hardware is hard to find. We've ordered our last vital piece and anticipate it arriving no later than March 24. Until then, we will record a service and put it on our website each Sunday. We anticipate this Sunday's service being on our website no later than 6 PM on Sunday.
We hope to have our worship team assemble and play some music for us. We hope to have different persons still offer a communion meditation. And we will invite one or two families to join us for the live taping each week. Please contact Pastor Randy is you'd like your family to take part in the live-streaming.
God create people to interact with one another. Not coming together for worship is going to be difficult. But we're going to regularly evaluate the spread of Covid-19, the guidance from local health officials and the requirements and requests of our Government's officials. One way we honor God is by being good citizens. So, we're all going to do our part.
If you need any special assistance during this unprecedented time, please contact Pastor Randy or one of our Elders.
If you don't receive our periodic newsletters, we urge you to sign up today. Simply go to the "keeping connected" page (under our ministries section) of this web page. You can self-subscribe to keep connected to your church family. If you've already subscribed and are not receiving our newsletters, please contact Pastor Randy. He'll be happy to assist you.
Tri County urges you to remain faithful in your giving. Even though we aren't meeting, our expenses remain the same. In fact, due to the methods we're using to bring Bible studies and worship services to your home via live streaming and virtual meetings, our expenses have increased. Further, we anticipate there will be significant needs both in and around our church where we'll be able to assist. You can use the "give" button at the top of this page or mail you contributions to Tri County Christian Church c/0 803 Oak Cluster Dr; Howell, MI 48855.
