As of Sunday, November 15, 2020, we have PAUSED in-person worship services for at least two weeks. We will continue to gather online via livestream on Sundays, 10am. This was not a decision forced upon us by any government agency. We've made this decision to help our community of Champaign County (IL) reduce the high rate of covid-19 infections. We see pausing in-person gatherings of worship, groups, and ministries as a wise way to love our neighbor at this moment. Please do your best to limit trips outside the home, physically distance, wear a mask around others, and wash hands frequently. Staff continue mostly to work from home and can be reached by phone or email. If your need is not urgent, you can also leave a voicemail at the office.
We worship in-person and online Sundays at 10:00am (beginning September 6, 2020). A digital worship guide is posted each weekend to YouVersion app under “Events.” A printable worship guide is available through our eNews. Links to both are posted with the each Sunday's livestream.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
So many people of Quest Church have asked, “How can I help?” It’s sometimes hard to answer that when the pandemic landscape changes daily but, in the middle of this crisis, we are still a church whose mission is to help people be wholehearted followers of Jesus Christ. Here are some ways to live our mission:
Jesus said that loving God with our whole self is our #1 priority. Use this time to lean in toward God. Be confident that nothing can ever separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ (Romans 8). If you're a parent, this is an unmatchable opportunity to help your kids grow more in love with God. Build or deepen a daily habit of connecting with God through Scripture and prayer. Worship online every Sunday. We're committed to sharing resources to keep you focused on loving God!
Jesus said our #2 priority is loving our neighbors. This is a unique time for the church of Jesus Christ to show incredible love for our others - especially society's poor and vulnerable, the very people God most often tells us to protect. One of the best things we can do at present is stay home and practice social distancing. Pray for your neighbors. Generous giving, sacrificial service, and contagiously sharing the good news of Jesus are also vital ways to love our neighbor. Check in on those most vulnerable to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and on people who live alone. We'll share opportunities to bless our neighbors in tangible ways as we learn about them.
Quest is part of a grassroots partnership with our neighbors in the Silverwood neighborhood of Urbana (across from the church building) to provide care packages each month during the pandemic to our neighbors in need. You can partner with us either through monetary donation (memo: Silverhearts) or by volunteering once a month. Volunteers put together care packages and/or help deliver to Silverwood neighbors in need. Contact Pastor Casey to serve.
