Right beside you

This week I want to let you know our news team is still hard at work, telling the story of how God is at work across North Carolina and beyond.

The coronavirus outbreak has not stopped us from doing what we love. Even though we are working remotely just like many of you, we have a print edition that went to press and our website and social media channels are still full of new content each day.

Our team continues to huddle up each week, even if it’s through a Zoom call, to pray for the churches and ministries we serve. We’re asking God to pour out wisdom and courage as faith families continue to boldly proclaim the gospel and love their neighbors.

Don’t forget to tell us about how God is at work in your community by sending pictures, videos and story tips to [email protected]!
