Long Hollow is Here to Help
We know that the coronavirus health crisis is dramatically affecting many in our community. If you need help, or want to help us reach out to those who are in need, please click the appropriate button below.
Is Long Hollow Still Gathering During This Season?
Yes, but our gatherings will look a little different for a short time. The government and leading health organizations have asked all Americans to avoid public gatherings, so we’ve temporarily suspended our in-person gatherings and have moved all of our activities to be online-only until further notice. We believe that corporate worship is a biblical mandate for Christians, and we want to resume in-person gatherings as quickly as possible. During this season, though, we’re excited to gather frequently through our Online Campus and other online tools.
Our Online Campus is currently meeting through two large gatherings: our Sunday Morning Worship Services and Pastor Robby’s Wednesday Night Bible Study.
When you join us online, you’ll enjoy the same worship service you would experience in-person. You can also join in on an interactive, staff-hosted live chat where our members gather to discuss the message, connect with others, give, and even share prayer requests.
Our Online Campus meets for our Sunday services every Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:15 a.m. (each service is identical). Pastor Robby’s Wednesday Night Bible Study is available every Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m.
On-campus Life Groups and D-Groups are suspended along with our other in-person gatherings. If you lead or are a part of an off-campus Life Group or D-Group, we encourage you to continue meeting digitally using tools like FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or Zoom.
Our ministry teams continue to monitor and evaluate plans for upcoming events, especially ministry opportunities like mission trips that require travel. For now, most near term mission trips are postponed, as are all in-person upcoming events.
Is There a Way I Can Help With Medical Needs?
Yes! Although our April 20 blood drive is now full, we’re working with the American Red Cross to schedule another one in the near future.
How Should I Spiritually Respond to This Health Crisis?
Trust in God as the good and sovereign Creator and Sustainer of life upon whom we all depend.
Pray for mercy for the sick, strength for doctors, insight for researchers, and wisdom for officials.
Look for opportunities to love and care for others, whether they are sick, isolated, marginalized, poor, or oppressed.
Continue to faithfully obey the Lord in your financial offerings by giving online HERE or by mail/dropbox so that the ministry of the church thrives all the more in the midst of difficult days.
Reflect often on the brevity of life, the urgency of eternity, and the beauty of the gospel.
How Can I Better Understand Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
Coronavirus is a type of virus that causes respiratory illness — an infection of the airways and lungs. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus. It is part of the same family of coronaviruses that includes the common cold. The coronavirus outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Since then, the virus has spread to other countries.
The most common early symptoms appear between 2 and 14 days after infection. Symptoms can be mild to severe. They include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention. Most people recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
Like many other viruses, the coronavirus (COVID-19) seems to spread from person-to-person through a cough, sneeze, or kiss. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that the risk in the U.S. is still low. They will update this status regularly on their website at cdc.gov/coronavirus.
